Family wants to know why girl not sent to hospital earlier
By DHARMENDER SINGH
KUALA SELANGOR: National service (NS) trainee Too Hui Min (pic) had complained of constipation for three days before she died and her family wants to know why camp officials did not take her to the hospital earlier.
Her mother, Chin Kwee Choo, 52, said she was told by the Geo Kosmo National Service Training Camp staff in Kuala Kubu Baru that her daughter had complained of constipation for several days.
“But they said she only started to complain of pain when she went to the shooting range in Banting on Wednesday morning,” she said, adding that even then the camp authorities should have taken her to the hospital at once.
She said someone from the camp called her four times on Wednesday, with the first call at 8pm, to say that Hui Min was being taken to hospital, followed by another call at 9pm to say she was having problems urinating.
At 10pm Chin was told that her daughter would be warded and the final call, just before 11pm, was to tell her of Hui Min’s death.

Fever forces quarantine at Semanggol NS camp
TAIPING: The Kerian district health office has placed a national service camp in Semanggol, near here, under quarantine.
At least 10 of its 300 trainees have been warded at the Taiping Hospital over the past few days while 80 others are being treated at the camp for an outbreak of a yet-to-be identified fever.
With the quarantine, it is learnt that all the trainees, who were supposed to return home for their weeklong break from yesterday to May 14, have to remain in the camp pending the outcome of the result of their blood tests.
A parent of one of the trainees tipped reporters here about the quarantine after his son, who was supposed to be at a bus terminal yesterday to return home, failed to turn up.
When he went to the camp, named Kem PLKN Jiwa Murni Semanggol, yesterday, he was barred from entering and was told by a staff member that the camp was under quarantine.
State Health, Environment and Human Resources Committee chairman A. Sivanesan confirmed that the NS camp had been placed under quarantine for the past few days.
He said that based on feedback from health officials in Bagan Serai and state health director Datuk Dr Ahmad Radzin Ahmad Mahir, there was an outbreak of fever the past four days.
“I was told that 10 of the trainees have been warded and 80 others are receiving treatment for fever at the camp.
“The health department has assigned an investigation team and blood samples have been taken from the affected trainees and sent for verification.
“Dr Ahmad Radzin assured parents that there is no reason for them to be overly alarmed,” said Sivanesan, adding that he planned to visit the camp.
Uh huh. No reason to be overly alarmed.
