Zahidah had a special bond with her son, Mohamad Sharib. His untimely death left her traumatized. “I will never see him again. My sweet son. My child,” she cried, while walking away from the morgue with her son, Mohamad Emran and neighbor Fathima Bin Ilyas. Shortly afterwards, Zahidah fainted.

Mohamad Sharib’s death-certificate states that he died of natural causes, drowning, but, his mother believes that it was caused by supernatural activities. “There was a forest nearby,” she said. “Forests have ghosts and spirits who pulled on my son’s leg underwater. My son knew how to swim.”
