KUCHING, March 15: The three children of the Cameron Highlands electrocution accident victims will return to Kuching tomorrow morning, according to Serian MP Dato Sri Richard Riot Jaem.

He met with the children this afternoon, along with their uncle and aunt, who will serve as the children’s guardians.

“I encouraged and advised them to persevere in the face of adversity and to work hard in order to become successful people one day.


“I also advised the children’s guardians to care for the deceased’s children as if they were their own,” he said in a statement today.

Riot said that he is extremely impressed with the two elder children due to their fluency in Mandarin as a result of their studies at a Chinese school.

“We are also thankful that their business on the peninsula went smoothly and that they will return to Kuching tomorrow morning,” he added.

On March 10, a man from Serian and his wife from Simunjan were found dead in a bathroom of a flat in Taman Tringkap, Brinchang in Cameron Highlands.

The man, 46, was from Kampung Daha Kisau, Serian and his wife, 35, from Kampung Ruan Lubang Tiung, Simunjan.

Preliminary investigations found burn marks on the palm of the woman, who is believed to have been electrocuted when she went to help her husband who was showering using the water heater at the time.

They left behind three children aged 10, eight, and one. — DayakDaily
