KUALA LUMPUR, June 21 — One of the foreign workers injured in last Saturday’s under-construction highway mishap at the Sungai Buloh-Kota Damansara section of the North Klang Valley Expressway has died.

According to Sinar Harian, Petaling Jaya OCPD Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid confirmed that the man died of his injuries yesterday afternoon in Sungai Buloh Hospital.

“It is understood that the victim died while receiving treatment at Sungai Buloh Hospital.

“The victim’s death has been attributed to trauma and organ failure due to a heart attack,” he was quoted as saying by the Malay daily.
