Bank exec dies in 25m car plunge

Life is short... Ask for forgiveness from those around you... be good to others as well as to your self... You'll never know what your routine will up to.
This is from THE STAR today....


NO ONE KNOWS: Norhailini’s wrecked car after it was turned
back on its wheels. The car rolled forward and off the 25m drop. Just how it
happened, no one knows.
KUALA LUMPUR: Norhailini Yahya would normally turn up for work early to get
a choice parking spot.
She would then take a nap in her car until it
was time for the day’s work to begin.
Yesterday, it all went horribly
The 45-year-old mother of three, acting vice-president of the
CIMB Investment Bank Bhd’s legal department, arrived at her office near Jalan
Semantan about 6.30am, parked her car by the side of a road overlooking a 25m
drop, put on her steering wheel lock and settled down for a snooze.
What really happened would never be known, but it is believed that
Norhailini accidentally stepped on the accelerator, causing the car to surge
forward and off the road, plunging to the ground below.
The car, a Kia
Rio, landed on its roof, trapping Norhailini inside. Security guards working in
the area turned the car back on its wheels and tried to rescue Norhailini, who
at that time was still alive.
However, the car was too bent out of
shape and Fire and Rescue Department personnel who arrived shortly spent 20
minutes cutting through the wreckage to get to her.
By the time they
reached her, Norhailini had died.
“It was a tragic accident,” said
CIMB assistant general manager (corporate communications) Tengku Zarina Tengku
She said Norhailini had been with Bumiputra Commerce Bank
(BCB) since January 1991 and with CIMB since it merged with BCB in June last

Norhailini was still alive when car turned
turtleNorhailini had been working at the Jalan Semantan office since
Her husband, Shuib Osman, said his wife had left home in
USJ9, Subang Jaya, about 6am.
“Before leaving she asked me to take
care of our youngest son who’s ill. I was then leaving the house for subuh
prayers at a mosque.
“About 7.30am, I got news of her death,” said the
48-year-old pilot when met at the University Malaya Medical Centre
Norhailini was buried at the USJ22 Muslim cemetery after
Asar prayers yesterday.
Norhailini leaves behind Shuib and their
children Mohd Faiz, 16, Noramira, 12, and Mohd Arif, seven.
