Sarawakian NS trainee collapses, dies in hospital

KUALA LUMPUR: A National Service (NS) trainee collapsed while performing the Zohor prayers at the Temasya Rimba Templer National Service Training Camp in Rawang, and later died at the Selayang Hospital, on Tuesday.

Syed Abdul Rahman Syed Ah-mad, 17, from Kota Samarahan, Sarawak, was rushed to the Selayang Hospital at about 1.50pm but pronounced dead about 50 minutes later.

“Medical record checks re-vealed that Syed Abdul Rahman did not have any medical problems and was active. He was always active in training at the camp,” said the National Service Training Department (JLKN) in a statement Wednesday.

According to JLKN records, the victim was only treated once for cough.

“The department will fly in his parents from Kuching, Sarawak and his body will be flown back to Sarawak,” said the statement.
