SHAH ALAM - A woman did not expect that a viral video of a food delivery man who died in a plane crash in Elmina last Thursday afternoon was actually her cousin.

Nurul Nazihah shared that she felt extremely sad and devastated seeing a victim of the crash burning in the video.

Little did she know, it was her very own cousin, the p-hailing rider Muhamad Hafiz Muhamad Salleh from Sidam, after police had managed to identify the deceased.

"No wonder I was feeling overwhelmingly sad. Apparently, it was my very own cousin. God, I am not strong enough to deal with this," she wrote on Facebook.

A Beechcraft Model 390 (Premier 1) light aircraft crashed in Elmina Central Park, Section U16, at about 2.48pm on Thursday, resulting in the deaths of 10 individuals.

They were pilots Shahrul Kamal Roslan and Heikal Aras Abdul Azim, as well as passengers Kharil Azwan Jamaludin, Shaharul Amir Omar, Mohamad Naim Fawwaz Mohamed Muaidi, Johari Harun, Muhammad Taufiq Mohd Zaki, and Idris Abdol Talib @ Ramali.

The other victim is an e-hailing driver, Sharipuddin Shaari.

The plane from Langkawi headed for Subang crashed two minutes before it was scheduled to land at Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, Subang.
