After a week of treatment, Nor Aqilah Mohd Safwan, 21, nodded when asked if she recognised her family members.
Seberang Perai Tengah OCPD Asst Comm Shafee Abd Samad said after a week of treatment at the intensive care unit (ICU) of Hospital Tuanku Mizan Armed Forces in Kuala Lumpur, Nor Aqilah’s condition was now more stable.
“Police received information that Nor Aqilah had regained consciousness and it was reported that she recognised her family members who were present by nodding her head,” he said on Thursday.
In the incident, Sharifah Fariesha Syed Fathi, Ayuni Shazwanie Shabri, Nor Adilah Mohd Safwan and Nor Aqilah were found unconscious in their car at a petrol station parking lot in Sama Gagah.
They were believed to have been overcome by suspected carbon monoxide poisoning when they fell asleep in the car with the engine on and windows wound up.
Sharifah Fariesha was pronounced dead at the scene, while Ayuni Shazwanie died shortly after arriving at the Seberang Jaya Hospital.Nor Aqilah’s twin, Nor Adilah, was initially found alive but died while undergoing treatment at the ICU of the Lumut Armed Forces Hospital in Perak last Thursday.
All four friends, who were students of a private medical college in Batu Caves, were travelling together and stopped at the petrol station at around 8.30pm after Nor Aqilah, who was driving, complained of not feeling well.
They were on their way back to Sungai Petani and Gurun in Kedah after spending the Malaysia Day holiday in Pulau Jerejak, Penang. — Bernama
