An accidental death, says pathologist

KUALA LUMPUR: The lead forensic pathologist who examined Ahmad Sarbaini Mohamed told the Coroner’s Court here that he died an “accidental death”.

“Ahmad Sarbaini landed on his right knee first, followed almost simultaneously by his left knee, his right forearm, left wrist, the fronto-parietal area (top front area of the head) and the facial part of the head.

“The injury to the head was very severe,” said Prof Dr Shahrom Abd Wahid, who is from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

He opined that even if Ahmad Sarbaini had survived, he would have been in a vegetative state.

He was testifying in an inquest into the death of Selangor Customs assistant director Ahmad Sarbaini who was found dead on the first floor of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) building on April 6.

Prof Shahrom conducted a second post mortem on Ahmad Sarbaini, 56, on April 7, twenty-four hours after his death to allow for a clearer detection of some wounds.
