KUALA TERENGGANU, July 8 ― A real estate agent died after knocking her head against a rock as she fell into a four-metre hole at Lubuk Cermai, Hulu Dungun early today.
Pang Choon Hua, 43, from Kampung Baru Senai, Johor passed away while being rushed to a health clinic.
The victim and 14 friends had arrived at the location in five 4WD vehicles yesterday before setting up camp.

“The victim’s friends ran to her aid after hearing her scream. They rushed her to the health clinic nearby but she died on the way.
“Her remains were brought to Kuala Jengal Police Station before being sent to the forensic unit at Dungun Hospital for post mortem,” he said. ― Bernama
