SUBANG JAYA: Fireman Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim has been transferred to the National Heart Institute (IJN) for further treatment.

Housing and Local Government Minister Zuraida Kamaruddin said IJN has better equipment to treat the 24-year-old.

"There is a machine there that will help improve his oxygen intake and hopefully this will help his recovery," she said after visiting him again at the Ramsay Sime Darby Healthcare centre Tuesday (Nov 27) night.

Zuraida said Muhammad Adib's condition had improved since she saw him in the afternoon.

"His blood pressure has improved but he has yet to regain consciousness as he has been sedated," she said.

She said the decision to transfer Muhammad Adib was made after consulting specialists from both hospitals.

"After assessing his condition they all agreed he should be transferred and his family consented," she said.

However, it is not known how long he will be treated at IJN.

Muhammad Adib was first admitted to the intensive care unit of the Ramsay Sime Darby Healthcare centre after he was injured in the line of duty at around 1am on Tuesday.

He was part of a team of nine firemen responding to a fire at the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ 25 where rioters were protesting its relocation.

In the incident, rioters forcefully dragged him out of his vehicle and attacked him causing him to sustain broken ribs, punctured lungs and other internal injuries.
