Teen who tried to save drowning cousin dies
KUCHING: A teenager who tried to save her drowning cousin on Dec 26 but failed, has also passed away.
Siti Nur Farah Ain died at the Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) yesterday.
The 14-year-old was in critical condition after trying to help her cousin, 16-year-old Mohd Nazrul Rosli, who was then struggling in the deeper part of the swimming pool at a resort some 35km from town on Sunday morning at 10.45am.
It was learnt that she was unable to save her cousin as she was also found unconscious with Nazrul.
Both were admitted to a nearby private hospital after other swimmers removed them from the pool.
Nazrul died on the way to the hospital while Siti was transferred to SGH.
She was in a coma and was hooked up to the life support system before she died. ~NST
Al Fatihah (-_-)
Died a heroine. She tried to help a he. She's 14, she was. Unfortunately she failed. What was she thinking. A hero never think for himself, in this case herself. So others may live.
At least She die(d) trying.
