Faisal Halim undergoes second surgery after acid attack


PETALING JAYA: National footballer Faisal Halim, who has undergone a second operation after suffering from fourth-degree burns from an acid attack, has asked Malaysians to pray for his speedy recovery.

Football Association of Selangor (FAS) deputy president Datuk Seri Shahril Mokhtar conveyed the footballer’s message after visiting him at a private hospital in Shah Alam.

Shahril said he met Faisal before his second surgery at 5.30pm on Tuesday (May 7).

"I got to see him. He asked for prayers for a speedy recovery and sent his greetings to all his friends," he said, according to Sinar Harian.

Doctors, he added, also confirmed that Faisal had fourth-degree burns from being splashed with concentrated sulphuric acid.

It is believed that the national footballer is scheduled to undergo more operations.

Faisal underwent a four-hour surgery on the same night that he was splashed with acid at a shopping mall in Kota Damansara on Sunday.

The player, also known as Mickey, will be hospitalised for at least three to four weeks.
