Copter tragedy: Kelantan gov't gives RM2,000 aid to twins whose mother perished in crash

KOTA BHARU: The Kelantan government will, through the State Sports Council (SSC), present welfare aid of RM2,000 to the state's judo exponents Nur Qistana Auni Mohd Azinor and her sister Nur Qistina Awliya.

State Youth, Sports, Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) and Community Unity Committee chairman Zamakhshari Muhamad said the welfare aid was given following the death of the exponents' mother, Petty Officer Nor Rahiza Anuar, who was among those who perished in the crash of two Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) helicopters at its Lumut base in Perak on Tuesday (April 23)

"We are in the process of contacting their family and will present the aid as soon as possible.

"We wish to convey our condolences to the two exponents, who were supposed to arrive in Kelantan to undergo training this week in preparation for the Malaysia Games (Sukma) in Sarawak," he told Bernama at the Kelantan SSC Office on Wednesday (April 24).

In the 9.32am incident on Tuesday, 10 RMN personnel were killed when two TLDM helicopters crashed in Lumut while conducting a third rehearsal for a flypast in conjunction with the 90th Naval Day, scheduled to be held this Saturday (April 27). – Bernama
