KUALA LUMPUR: After battling it out for three days, popular comedian, TV and radio personality Mior Ahmad Fuad bin Mior Badri or more affectionately known as Din Beramboi, succumbed to Dengue Shock Syndrome.
Pronounced dead at 12.30am at the Intensive Care Unit of the Selayang Hospital, the 43 year-old is survived by his wife Suhaini binti Che Man, 42, and his three children Nil Aina Adiba, 17, Mior Ahmad Shafiq, 12 and Nir Ain, 3.
Din had earlier been diagnosed as facing infection of the blood from an ailment known as Leptospirosis and dengue hemorrhagic fever.
His brother in-law, Shariffudin Che Man, 37, confirmed that the body would be taken to his family home at 2079, Jalan E5/12, Taman Ehsan, Kepong.
“We expect to gather about 9am there before heading for the burial at the FRIM Muslim Cemetery nearby before Friday prayers.
“We thank everyone for their prayers and support over the last few days.”
Earlier in the day, the family was devastated by rumours of his passing as well as photos of Din in a coma circulated widely over the Internet.
Sharifuddin said Din’s situation had taken a turn for the worse when he flatlined at approximately 11.30pm.
He was resuscitated and his family including his mother, Rahmah binti Abdullah Sani, 74, were by his side.
“At 12.30am, he flatlined again and this time our efforts in administering CPR were not able to bring him back.”
By 2am, the entertainment industry had congregated at the Selayang Hospital morgue including his radio breakfast show co-host Aznil Nawawi, Mawi, Faizal Tahir, Rosyam Nor and Afdlin Shauki.
Aznil, who was in tears, said he had last visited Din earlier in the morning.
“I said, Din, everyone loves you, (and will) do what is best for you.
“But if it were up to me, I want you to fight on and come back to us.”
Among those in the ICU with his family were singer Ifa Raziah, who had joined TV personality Azwan Ali and actor Zul Yahya as the last visitors.
“It happened before my eyes,” said Azwan. “He left in front of me.”
The ordeal weighed heavily on all of them and Azwan said at the very least he had been able to be at Din’s side in his final moments.
Meanwhile, the fate of the popular radio breakfast show Pagi di Era, which features Aznil and Din is unknown.
Din was also nominated as Most Popular Male Radio Presenter for Anugerah Bintang Popular Berita Harian (ABPBH) 2010 and had planned to take some time off to bring his entire family to Genting Highlands for ABPBH and to spend the rest of his holidays there with them. It was to be his first time off after a long period.
