KUANTAN: The body of 12-year-old Mohd Osama Suparman, who fell into Sungai Pasir Kubur and was swept away by strong currents, has been recovered.
Indera Mahkota Fire and Rescue Department station chief Mohamad Najib Hashim said villagers found the body floating in the river about 1km from the spot in Sungai Lembing where he and his family were having a picnic on Saturday afternoon.
He added that the body, clad only in shorts, was retrieved at about 9.35am yesterday and taken to the Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital for post-mortem.
Suparman Hanan, the father of the Year Six pupil of SK Seri Iman, said his son was active in sports.
“I saw him for the last time a week ago. He wanted football boots and I bought them for him,” the 46-year-old said when met at the morgue.
He added that Mohd Osama, who was the fifth of seven siblings, was looking forward to sitting for his UPSR as he wanted to enter a religious school after that.
Mohd Osama was washing his hands in the river when he fell into the deep end. His younger brother, three cousins and an uncle also fell into the river but several nearby villagers pulled them out in time.
Mohd Osama will be buried in
his hometown of Kampung Jabor, Kemaman.
