Our injured fireman received a royal visitor today when acting King, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah visited him at the IJN.

Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim was critically injured during a riot at the Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ 25.

Sultan Nazrin arrived at the National Heart Institute at 9am while Fire and Rescue Department director-general Datuk Muhammad Hamdan Wahid was present to receive him.

During the 30-minute visit, Sultan Nazrin was briefed by a doctor on duty on Muhammad Adib's condition and also handed over some contributions to the fireman's family.

In a statement issued by IJN, the 24-year-old fireman was reported to be showing signs of waking up and responding to some verbal commands, but is still being kept highly sedated to allow his organs to recover.

In the incident on Nov 27, Muhammad Adib was believed to have been assaulted by a group of rioters while responding to an emergency at the temple.

According to Bernama, Muhammad Adib who is suffering from fractured ribs and internal injuries was earlier treated at the Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) before being transferred to IJN on Tuesday night.

The fracas at the temple which occurred about 2.30am  was stirred over the relocation of the 100-year-old temple. The riots occurred at the vicinity of the temple and the One City shopping centre.

Meanwhile, Muhammad Hamdan said Sultan Nazrin expressed sadness over what had happened to Muhammad Adib.

“During the visit, the Sultan said that he was sad over what had happened and he also prayed for Muhammad Adib's speedy recovery,” Muhammad Hamdan told a press conference here on Friday.

Muhammad Hamdan said specialist doctors and medical officers at IJN were working hard to provide intensive treatment to Muhammad Adib.
