A fatal accident took place on Malaysia’s North-South expressway on 15 October, resulting in two people being burnt to death, including a 28-year-old woman.
She was trapped inside the car, which then burst into flames as her husband watched on helplessly while screaming.
The Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department of Johor said in a Facebook post that the accident took place on the night of 15 October.
They were alerted at 7.41pm and 18 officers were activated to the scene at KM45.7 of the expressway, and firefighters found 3 vehicles on fire when they arrived.
Among the deceased was 28-year-old Nurul Nazihah Kamalul Arifin; while her husband, 30-year-old Redzuan Jamil managed to get out of the burning vehicle safely.
The other deceased was an unidentified person from a Toyota Vios.
A video of the accident emerged online showing Redzuan screaming helplessly as his car went up in flames, with his wife still trapped inside.
He was heard in the video calling out to his wife, “i am not leaving you, sayang, my love, that is my wife.”
Speaking to The New Straits Times, Redzuan said that he tried to break open the windshield and front passenger door but to no avail.
His wife told him to save himself, which was the last words he ever heard from her – he was then pulled away from the car by others when the fuel tank exploded.
