PUTRAJAYA — June 26, 2019: An accident victim received an unexpected royal intervention and help here today when the King himself stopped to help.
Pictures of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah stopping by the scene this morning and checking on the driver of a Perodua Alza car immediately went viral on social media.
“His Royal Highness Yang di-Pertuan Agong alighted from his official car to help an accident victim in the vicinity of Putrajaya.
“Alhamdulillah, the driver of the car, Puan Jasliza Jamil was not seriously hurt,” a post on Istana Negara’s official Instagram account stated.
The same post said that His Majesty later proceeded to Istana Melawati for the regular pre-Cabinet meeting with the prime minister.
Putrajaya OCPD ACP Rosly Hasan said Jasliza was at that time headed for her office in Precinct 2.
“It was drizzling and she lost control of the car before crashing into the railing,” Rosly said.
He said the King, who happened to be passing by the same route, stopped to check on the victim. — Bernama
