KUCHING, May 9 (Bernama) -- A joyful outing at the Kampung Giam waterfall

here for four colleagues from the Sarawak General Hospital''s Heart Centre in

Kota Samarahan turned tragic when two of them, a doctor and a nurse, drowned.

The victims were identified as Mohamad Azri Dollah, 27, from Semariang,

here, who had just completed his housemanship, and nurse Norfazillah Abdul

Kadir, 23, from Kampung Baru, Samarahan.

They and two nurses from the heart centre had gone to picnic and swim at the

waterfall area, about 35km from Kuching city, this morning.

At about 11am, Norfazillah was seen struggling in the water and calling out

for help. Realising that she could not swim, Mohamad Azri jumped into the water

to save her.

However, he too got into difficulty due to the swift current and with the

frightened Norfazillah pulling at him, both went under water and disappeared.
