PETALING JAYA: A motorist caught in an accident in Putrajaya on Wednesday morning (June 26) was offered help by a most unexpected person – the King.
Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, who was on his way to a pre-cabinet meeting with the Prime Minister, stopped his car to offer help to the accident victim.
Several photos of Sultan Abdullah standing by the road checking on the driver while his bodyguards looked on were posted on the Istana Negara's Instagram page (@istana_negara).
"His Majesty was on his journey to Istana Melawati, Putrajaya for a pre-cabinet meeting with YAB Prime Minister when the motorcade stumbled upon the accident," it said.
"Fortunately, the driver Puan Jasliza Jamil suffered only minor injuries," it added.
Prior to this, on Friday (June 21), Sultan Abdullah was seen at a KFC outlet in Temerloh, Pahang queuing up for food just like any other customer.
