To his shock, he discovered that the victim was his own son, 21-year-old Muhammad Aiman.

In the 21 years I have worked as an ambulance driver, that was the first time I had been faced with a situation involving a family member. Only Allah knows the sorrow I felt at the time.

“Aiman had also just started working in the landscape unit of Taman Tamadun Islam (TTI) for the past five months,” he said.

The ambulance driver added that Aiman usually brought food to work but told the family that he wanted to have dinner at home a day before the fatal crash.

“Coincidentally, the day before I managed to fry some fish I brought back from a trip to Tasik Kenyir. He had eaten that and then asked to keep some so he could it yesterday,” recounted the sorrowful father.

Taqwa described Aiman, the second out of five children, as a quiet but popular individual among his peers.

Aiman was buried at the Felda Belara Muslim cemetery at around 11:30 am yesterday (Nov 7).

Setiu police chief Deputy Superintendent Afandi Hussin said that Aiman died at the scene of the crash due to head injuries he sustained.

He added that the victim was on his way home to Sungai Tong from Kuala Nerus when the crash occurred.

“Aiman, who was riding a Honda EX5, was said to have tried to overtake another vehicle and crashed into the lorry which was coming from the opposite direction,” he said, adding that the lorry was uninjured.
