TOUCH – A child’s unwellness brought sad news when his mother was confirmed dead in an accident at Kilometer 57 of Jalan Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur near the Sungai Batang Padang Bridge here on Friday.
The crash at around 7.15am killed Shahriza Ishak, 39, after the motorcycle she was riding collided with a trailer before being dragged 10 metres.

“He called them to say he felt bad when their mother did not return after sending her two younger brothers who are 11 and 15 to school.
“I went straight home and picked him up before I sent him to school. When I passed the scene of the incident, I saw a blue motorcycle with the body covered in black plastic and dismantled.
“I’m like my wife’s motorcycle. I stood shaking as my son cried on the side of the road.
I know when an accident involves a trailer, there is no hope for him,” he said when met at the Forensic Medicine Unit of the Tapah Hospital here.
According to him, it was the routine of the deceased to send his three children to school when he worked the night shift.
“He was going back and forth to pick up our children to send them to school. At the time of the incident, he should have taken Syazwani to school.
“I can’t believe he ‘left’ when before the incident he called me to complain that his daughter had fallen asleep while getting ready for school,” he said.

Meanwhile, Nur Syazwani said her mother showed a significant change on the morning of the incident when there was no longer a voice telling the three siblings to get ready.
“Mom is always noisy, but today she wakes me up easily. This morning my mother was very different, she was quiet a lot, I didn’t think it was a sign that she had left us.
“When I saw my mother lying there, I felt faint and hoped it was a dream with the hope that when I woke up, my mother was actually there again. Anyway, it’s written for the mother to go,” he said.
It is understood that the remains will be buried at the Jalan Damai Islamic Cemetery here.
