Cyclist knocked out cold after stunt goes wrong


AN Indonesian in his 20s was knocked out cold for almost an hour when he injured his penis during a daredevil stunt in Mukah, Harian Metro reported.

The man, known as Adi, attempted a stunt by lifting up his bicycle’s front tyre but crashed into a table behind the restaurant where he works, on Tuesday.

The restaurant owner said he had repeatedly advised Adi to quit his risky pastime but it was as if he was addicted to it.

“I hope he learns from his mistakes,” the owner, known only as Ayang, said.

Adi was taken to Mukah Hospital for treatment.

According to the hospital’s spokesman, the injury was not serious and Adi woke up as soon as he received treatment.

The two suspects managed to escape injury in the 4am incident on Wednesday.

It is believed the cow had been bought for RM2,000 by another man for his daughter’s wedding.

Besut district police chief Supt Khaled Che Lah said the suspects realised they were being chased and tried to speed up the car before crashing it.

He said that one of the suspects, with eight prior criminal cases, was detained while another managed to escape.

> A hotel server who assaulted his son’s teacher in retaliation for slapping the boy, was fined RM950 by a magistrate’s court in Malacca.

Major Malay dailies reported that Saufie Suboh, 38, was sentenced on Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to two charges of threatening and slapping Mohd Najib Mashkor, 37.

It was reported that Saufie approached the victim at the SK Air Molek canteen and asked if the victim had slapped his son for supposedly not following his instructions.

He then threatened to injure the victim with a baton before slapping his right cheek.

The court set the fine at RM450 and RM500 for the respective charges after considering that Saufie’s salary is only RM1,500 and he still had to take care of his parents who suffered from diabetes and high blood pressure.
