KUALA LUMPUR: Datin Fatimah Wan Chik, wife of former Labuan MP Datuk Suhaili Abdul Rahman who was in a coma for more than 10 months following cosmetic surgery, has died.

Fatimah, 44, died without regaining consciousness at 7.40am yesterday at a private hospital here.

She had reportedly undergone a tummy tuck, liposuction and surgery for her eye bags at a clinic in Klang on Jan 9 and suffered complications, slipping into a coma.

Her body arrived at the Federal Territory mosque at 12.30pm and prayers were held at 2pm.

“The body will be flown back to Labuan in the evening where she will be buried,” Suhaili said.

Suhaili, who had flown in from Kuching and arrived at the KLIA at 1pm, said he had wanted to visit his wife in hospital yesterday.

The couple have four children, three boys and a girl, aged between 18 and 25.

A close friend of the family, who declined to be named, said the funeral would most likely be held today.

Among those who paid their last respects at the mosque were Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique, Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Special Adviser to the Prime Minister for Women and Social Development Affairs Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil and Titiwangsa Umno branch chief Datuk Seri Suleiman Mohamed.
