GEORGE TOWN: Just hours after being discharged from hospital, a four-month pregnant woman was traumatised after she identified the body of her husband, who died in the landslide.

Wakrini, 36, was hospitalised briefly earlier after suffering minor injuries and swelling to her legs during Friday’s landslide.

Unable to contain her grief, the Indonesian woman started screaming near the Penang Hospital mortuary.

She was rushed back to the hospital, but was taken to the mortuary again at 3.45pm yesterday to identify Bahtiar, 36, whose body was found earlier in the morning.

A relative said Wakrini eventually identified the body, adding: “She was overwhelmed by the situation.”

The couple have a child, who is currently staying with relatives in their hometown in southeast Sulawesi, Indonesia.
