PETALING JAYA: An elderly man rushed to help his nephew who fainted during the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry’s enforcers parade.
Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi had shared heartwarming pictures of the incident on Facebook.
He said he could not hold his tears back when the elderly man rushed to the officer’s aid under the scorching sun during the ministry’s enforcement day marching parade.
He said the elderly man was not bothered that his slippers came off as he ran.
Nanta said even though the man was old, he continued to help the officer stand upright while leaning against him to ensure he does not fall again.
He added that moment proved the untold sacrifice like a father towards his son.
Umno Youth chief Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki said the officer who fainted during the parade is his adopted son.
Asyraf clarified on Facebook that the enforcement officer, whose name is Nik Mohd Adhar, was stationed in Tawau, Sabah.
“Nik has been an orphan from a young age, which is why we adopted him since he was a student at Sekolah Geting Tumpat.
“The man in the viral picture helping him is his uncle, Abdul Aziz Ya’acob, who raised him following the death of his parents.
“I had spoken to Nik Adhar, and apparently, he was having a fever during the event,” he said.
Asyraf said he prayed that Nik Adhar will recover soon from his fever.
