SEREMBAN, March 21 — An 18-month-old baby was killed by a remote-control helicopter which crashed at the launch of the Paroi Youth and Sports Complex synthetic football field here last night.

Nurdamia Husnina Banee Yamin died upon arrival at the Tuanku Ja’afar Hospital in the 10pm incident.

The toy helicopter also grazed the head of the baby’s father, Banee Yamin Idris, 35, who also sought treatment at the same hospital.

A witness, Abdul Latif Salim, said the toy helicopter was seen to have lost control before plunging towards the public.

He said he managed to dodge the falling toy before it hit the baby who was being carried by the father.

“The baby’s head was bleeding and the father rushed her into an ambulance to get to the hospital,” he said.

The remote-control helicopter show was a part of the event officiated by Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.

Mohamad, when met by reporters after visiting the victim at the hospital, said he regretted the incident which he described as unexpected.

He said the state government would set up an investigation board to look into the matter and to ensure it did not recur in the future.

He said the state government would also make sure that the victim’s family received the necessary assistance.

Meanwhile, Seremban police chief ACP Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said the 40-year-old operator of the toy helicopter had filed a police report and the case was being investigated under section 304A of the Penal Code.
