Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) final year student Nur Nabilah Mohd Azahar who was seriously injured in an accident while undergoing industrial training at the Dive Division Curacao, in the Caribbean, in December last year, has arrived safely in the country on Friday.
UUM vice-chancellor Prof Dr Haim Hilman Abdullah, deputy vice-chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni) Prof Dr Ahmad Martadha Mohamed, senior officials from Wisma Putra and UUM, as well as her parents Mohd Azahar Zakaria and Nor Manira Khalib were present at the airport to welcome Nur Nabilah.
Haim Hilman said the plane carrying Nur Nabilah, 25, from Alor Setar, landed at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at 8 pm.
He added that Nur Nabilah, a student at the UUM’s School of Tourism, Hospitality and Event Management (STHEM), will continue her follow-up treatment at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital (HUKM) and hoped that the girl and her family continue to be patient and resilient.
“I would like to thank UUM, parents and families who always pray for Nur Nabilah as well as the Ministry of Higher Education, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and all parties involved in her treatment,” he said in a statement today.
Meanwhile, in the same statement, Nur Nabilah’s mother, Nor Manira, said she was grateful and indebted to all parties who helped with her daughter’s treatment abroad.
“I am so happy to see my daughter is finally brought home safely with the cooperation of all parties,” she said.
Meanwhile, one of Nur Nabilah’s friends, Aiman Qistina Balqis Azman, who has known Nur Nabilah for more than seven years, said she took leave just to welcome her best friend home and hoped she would recover soon.
Media previously reported that Nur Nabilah, who is better known as Bella among family and friends, suffered severe injuries to her left leg and fractured her right arm and right leg as a result of being hit by a boat propeller while undergoing industrial training at the Dive Division Curacao, in the Caribbean, on Dec 28. – Bernama
