Injured NS Trainee Hopes For Fast Recovery
Asila Latin Husma Abdul Basir, 17, from Pasir Mas who injured her back during one of the physical session of the programme last Feb 23 said she accepted what had happened to her as an accident.
"At about 7.15 am that morning, the other trainees and I were doing our physical training. My back felt numb after the session but I still managed to walk to my room," she told reporters at Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital in Kubang Kerian here Sunday.
Asila's back pain worsened later that day until she could not get up from her bed. She was then sent to Manjung Hospital for treatment, and later transferred to Ipoh Hospital where she was informed by the doctor that her injury was critical. She was transferred to the current hospital last Friday.
Meanwhile, her father Abdul Basir Abdul Rahman, 46, said he accepted what happened to his first-born, and hoped she would recover soon.
"The doctors here did not tell me anything about Asila's condition but the one in Ipoh did mention that there was a swelling on the back of her hips," he said.
Abdul Basir said Asila, the eldest of two siblings, now has back pain and could only lie down with both of her feet appearing swollen.
"We hope she gets well soon as Asila really wants to continue her studies after her Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia results is announced soon," he said.
Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital Director Dr Zaidun Kamari when contacted said that the hospital was still treating Asila.
