KUALA LUMPUR: Firefighter Mohd Hazim Mohd Rahimi, 31, has revealed that the rescuer standing behind a fire truck as seen in a viral video of the riot at Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in Subang Jaya on Monday was him and not his partner, Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim, Bernama reported.

Some have begun claiming that the fire truck in question had run into Muhammad Adib as it speedily reversed, and is the cause of the 24-year-old’s life-threatening injuries – countering reports that he was beaten by an angry mob.

“I got out of the truck and wanted to get some equipment, when I saw a group of people charging towards me. I ran to the back and into the EMRS (Emergency Medical Response Service) vehicle.

“Once inside, I closed the door and I don’t know what happened outside as it was chaotic and I panicked,” Mohd Hazim said as he recounted the dramatic events of that morning.

He believes that his action in running to the rear of the EMRS vehicle resulted in him being mistaken for having been run over, and for being Muhammad Adib.

“It took a while before (we) realised Adib was not in the EMRS with us,” Mohd Azim added without elaborating, citing the ongoing investigation.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Fire and Rescue Department has denied accusations that its truck had run over the firefighter who was injured in Tuesday morning’s temple violence.

Its director-general, Mohammad Hamdan Wahid said it would be lodging police reports against anyone making such “baseless statements”.

“We would like to ask groups to refrain from making baseless statements and we are currently in the process of lodging police reports,” Hamdan told reporters at Institut Jantung Negara this evening.

He said there are laws against making false allegations and they would take action to protect the department’s integrity.

Earlier today, the Sri Maha Mariamman temple task force, led by S Ramaji, claimed the critically-injured firefighter, Muhammad Adib Kassim, 24, was not assaulted by rioters as earlier reported but was instead run down by a fire engine.

Ramaji supported the claim by showing a video uploaded on Facebook.

However, Hamdan denied the claims and introduced the firefighter in the video as Muhammad Hazim Rahimi, who was present at the press conference. Hazim was not injured.

Hazim said he had been mistaken as Adib because when he ran from the unruly mob, he had climbed into a nearby Emergency Medical Rescue Services (EMRS) van, instead of the fire engine.

Adib was badly injured in the fracas at the Sri Maha Mariamman temple in USJ25 early yesterday.

There are conflicting claims over how Fire and Rescue Department personnel Muhammad Adib Muhammad Kassim sustained life-threatening injuries during the riot in Subang Jaya on Tuesday morning.

According to the authorities, Adib was forced out of a van and assaulted while responding to an emergency.

However, the caretakers of the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman temple dispute this, and held a press conference this afternoon to draw attention to a video clip which recently surfaced.

The caretakers claim that the video clip purportedly shows a man in a fire-resistant suit walking behind a fire engine which suddenly reversed.

“The fire engine reversed so far and hit him (causing Adib to land on) a car which was at the back,” said temple priest Ramaji.

When contacted, Selangor police chief Mazlan Mansor said that that they were investigating that angle, but could not provide details at this point.

However, some Fire and Rescue Department staff informed Malaysiakini that Adib could not have been the person in the video, as that person was wearing a fire-resistant Nomex suit and helmet (photo, left).

Adib is part of the emergency medical rescue team (EMRS) which would likely mean that he was wearing regular camouflage uniform (photo, right).

Sources also claim that Adib was seated at the front seat in the EMRS van and did not disembark on his own.

Another video clip has surfaced which purportedly depicts a group removing Adib from the scene and loading him onto a pickup truck which sent him to the hospital.
