17yo M’sian Teen Dies From Alleged Food Poisoning After Eating Fried Eggs

Very unexpected.
Food poisoning is a health condition where someone suffers symptoms such as stomachaches, vomiting, or diarrhea after consuming tainted food.

While most recover from it without any side effects within days, there are rare instances where it can lead to fatalities, which was unfortunately what happened to a 17-year-old teenager.

“My wife brought back fried bihun (vermicelli) and fried eggs after attending a programme at a religious school in Sungai Cincin.

“Me and my son ate the fried eggs while my wife and two daughters only ate the fried bihun,” he recounted.

Not long after, Kamal said both he and his son began experiencing stomachaches. He then took his son to the clinic for treatment but was unprepared for what was about to come.

I went to the clinic and thought my son was okay. When I went back home at noon, I was shocked because he had already passed away.

“I was later informed that the food was ordered by the organiser of the programme,” he said.

No further cases of food poisoning reported

When contacted by the Malay daily, the Selangor Islamic Religious Department (Jais) director Datuk Mohd Shahzihan Ahmad confirmed that several reports were made concerning the food poisoning incident.

He added that the said religious school in Sungai Cincin was hosting the Amal Islami programme.

“However, no students from the school were involved in the food poisoning case. The claims involving two deaths (due to food poisoning) involved third party (outsiders),” he said.

Shahzihan said Jais is still waiting for reports to confirm the incident and a police statement is expected to be issued as well.
