January 18, 2007 21:01 PM

MELAKA, Jan 18 (Bernama) -- A National Service (NS) trainee, Iliameera
Azlan, 17, died Thursday as she was being rushed to the Melaka Hospital
after experiencing breathing difficulty at the Ayer Keroh training camp.

Melaka Police Chief Datuk Ayub Yaakob said that based on an initial report,
no foul play was suspected in the death of Iliameera, of Taman Tuanku Jaafar
in Seremban.

However, an investigation will be carried out from every aspect, said Ayub,
who visited the camp where the trainee was attached to.

"A preliminary investigation showed that Iliameera had not undergone any
heavy physical activity the previous night, and she did not have any record
of a health problem," he added.

Iliameera reportedly did not wake up at 5.30 am as required and when found
at 6.30 am having breathing difficulty, the instructor of the camp rushed
her to the hospital. She is believed to have died on the way to hospital.

Melaka Hospital Director Dr Abu Bakar Mohamud, when contacted, declined to
disclose the cause of death after the post-mortem.

"We have carried out various "sample" tests and further tests will be
conducted before we send a report to the Health Ministry," he said.

Iliameera's father, Azlan Jaafar, 46, said he and his wife rushed to Melaka
after being informed about his daughter's condition.

"My daughter was healthy; she was healthy before coming here. She said she
was happy at the camp. Suddenly, today we receive a call that she has died,"
he said, still in shock.

He said he last met his daughter on Jan 7 and that she was scheduled to go
for a job interview on Jan 27.

Iliameera was a student of Sekolah Teknik Tuanku Jaafar, and was waiting for
the results of her Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination.

Her remains were taken back to her house for burial at the Dol Said Muslim
cemetery in Sikamat.

National Service Training Department Director General Abdul Halim Abdul
Hamid, who was at the hospital, handed to Azlan RM3,000, which is part of the insurance payment. -- BERNAMA

Hi Penangite,

I also don't have power, I also don't have money, I also don't have connections,

But I believe that we have faith for future, and we have faith that BN will collapse. I stongly believe BN power is not as big as the internet power, the world is become flatter and they still living in their own world,

And I would like to say thank you to you for sharing all the information with us,



Penangite too
