KLANG – The Education Ministry will ensure Siti Nuraisyah Sahrin’s study is not affected despite having to stay away from school for a long period to undergo rehabilitation due to an accident on Monday.
Education Ministry deputy director-general (Education operations) Datuk Ahmad Tajudin Jab said the student’s teachers, at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Bagan Terap, Sabak Bernam, would be asked to teach her the subjects she would miss during her rehabilitation.
He was speaking to reporters after visiting Siti Nuraisyah, 13, who lost both her legs after being run over by a lorry and was now being treated at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital (HTAR) here, today.
The student and her step-sister, Shamin Amirah Roslan, 14, were riding a motorcycle when it went out of control and fell, spilling them on the road, after being sideswiped by a car.
A sand lorry from the opposite direction ran over Siti Nuraisyah’s legs while Shamin Amirah, who fell on the road shoulder, sprained both her legs.
Meanwhile, HTAR Medical Officer Dr Edmund Das said Siti Nuraisyah was stable and she was expected to leave the hospital next week “and fully recover in six months”. – BERNAMA
