Keyless condo resident slips while trying to reach balcony

Posted: 13 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

PETALING JAYA: A man fell to his death while trying to get to his balcony by scaling the side of his Kota Damansara condominium.

Lee Heng Fatt, 37, is said to have returned to his apartment on the 12th floor at about 2am yesterday to find himself locked out. Instead of calling his roommate, who was home, Lee decided to climb out of the corridor and scale the wall.

He lost his grip and plummeted 10 floors onto the balcony of a second floor apartment at about 2.40am.

It woke up the occupants who immediately alerted the police.

Petaling Jaya OCPD ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed said the case was classified as sudden death and that Lee's body was taken to the University Malaya Medical Centre for a post-mortem, adding that he died of severe injuries to the head.

At the hospital, Lee's mother was inconsolable and fainted three times when told of her son's death.

"Please don't leave me! Why was he so stupid? Why did he do this? I blame myself!" she said, beating her chest in sorrow.

In George Town, an ice deliveryman sustained multiple bodily injuries after he fell off the top of a corridor wall at an apartment where he had apparently squatted to smoke a cigarette.

Goh Min Kuen, 30, lost his footing while getting down from the wall outside his sister's seventh floor unit.

He fell two floors down onto the open space on the fifth floor of the apartment in Bandar Baru Air Itam in the 9pm incident on Wednesday.

He is being warded at the Penang Hospital for injuries to his right eye, left wrist and private parts.

George Town acting OCPD Supt Ismail Toh Paduka Idris said Goh had just returned a television set to his sister before he went out to have a smoke.

He said Goh had admitted that he fell by accident.

"His mother, who was walking towards the apartment then, witnessed the entire incident.

"Nobody else was there and we have temporarily ruled out foul play pending investigation," he said.

Supt Ismail said Goh's brother-in-law rushed out from the unit after hearing a loud thud.

"Goh was found sprawled on the open space. Before that, he was seen puffing on the corridor wall," he said.

Stuntman Ju Kun sorely missed by 'Marco Polo' crew

Posted: 13 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

PETALING JAYA: Best known for his work on staple kung fu flicks like The Forbidden Kingdom and Fearless, Chinese stuntman Ju Kun, had been in Malaysia since February.

Ju, who was on board the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight, has been working as the co-fight choreographer on The Weinstein Company and Netflix joint project, Marco Polo.

The 35-year-old stunt master, who worked as kung fu star Jet Li's stunt double, had planned a quick trip to Beijing to visit his two sons, aged five and one, as well as to collect work materials for his latest project.

"It was an unfortunate circumstance that this happened," said Brett Chan, Marco Polo's stunt co-ordinator and fight choreographer in an email interview.

"But we all whole-heartedly believe he will come back to us. I hope he comes back soon ... I miss my dear friend," he added.

The series is scheduled for shooting at the Pinewood Studios in Johor Baru next month.

A joint statement from The Weinstein Company and Netflix stated: "We are deeply saddened by news of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Ju Kun, who was on board, was an integral part of our production team and a tremendous talent. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time."

Marco Polo creator and producer John Fusco said: "Ju Kun is not only a treasure of martial arts talent and knowledge, he is a treasure of a person loved by many. We are all missing him right now and keeping each other strong."

Fusco added that his team will persevere and carry on with the production, in honour of Ju Kun.

"It is a tragic incident beyond our control, but our exceptional martial arts team will continue to work with the same creative energy and ethic that Ju Kun has brought to the group.

"They know it's what he would want at this time. Our stunt team's courage and hearts at this difficult time have brought all of us closer together," he said.

Antics of bomoh at KLIA lead to spoofs over social media

Posted: 13 Mar 2014 09:00 AM PDT

PETALING JAYA: As the world closely follows the intensive efforts to locate MH370, a certain "magic carpet" took off on social media, even "landing" in the White House.

A day after reports of bomoh Ibrahim Mat Zin's second bid to find the missing aircraft, social media exploded yesterday with various spoofs of him and his team's antics. The group first performed their ritual at KL International Airport in Sepang on Monday.

Some cheeky netizens had fun super-imposing shots of Ibrahim's three assistants sitting on the so-called magic carpet onto published photos of US President Barack Obama.

One showed Obama smiling in front of a TV screen that had an image of the group on the carpet and holding coconuts. Another had Obama looking down at the three men in songkok and suits in his office with the said carpet and coconuts.

The latter came with the words: "Dah sampai Whitehouse???" (Have we reached the White House?)

There were also manipulated images of the bomoh that made it seem as though they were in the sky "in search of" the flight.

Funny take: A combo picture showing how people made fun of bomoh Ibrahim Mat Zin online.

Those were some of the pictures posted on various blogs, with most denouncing the bomoh's antics as a joke and embarrassment in this time of distress.

Three Kuala Lumpur Hospital nurses, too, couldn't resist parodying the bomoh's effort. In their spoof, the women recreated the magic carpet scene, clad in their uniform and holding medical equipment.

The photo went viral on Facebook and Twitter, with even Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng retweeting it.

User @t0k_anjang also uploaded the photo on Twitter on Wednesday, and since then it has been favourited 27 times and retweeted 70 times.

Health Ministry director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah, when asked if disciplinary action would be taken against the hospital staff, said he "would do the necessary".
