JOHOR BARU: “We huddled, we hugged and we kissed each other. None of us knew who would make it but at that moment we knew who would not,” RMAF commando Sjn Saad Che Omar said of his ordeal at sea with two colleagues who died after their boat capsized on Sunday. 

“It was the saddest moment of my life,” he whispered from his bed at the Sultanah Aminah Hospital’s intensive care unit yesterday.
