Met by reporters at his grandmother''s home in Kampung Jenderam Hilir here,

Mohd Awie said he ran on hearing screams from his seniors but his brother

appeared to be waiting for a cousin and friend before all three were trapped

underneath rushing earth.

The youngest of six siblings whose father has died, he said he tried to dig

up the earth with his bare hands in trying to rescue them but was stopped by the

police who told him to keep a safe distance.

However, he took comfort that he could fulfill his brother''s wish to get a

watch and perfume on his (Riezman''s) birthday in January.

"I spent RM56 to get him a Ben 10 watch and perfume which a senior helped to

buy. Riezman was very happy and always wore the watch, he said.

body at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital mortuary but accpeted his death as fated.

was during Aidilfitri last year.

recently he had telephoned to ask when I and my husband were coming to visit

him," she said.

Riezman''s and Boboy''s remains were buried at the Kampung Jenderam Hilir

Muslim cemetery after the midday prayers.
