According to New Straits Times, the children he saved were between the ages of nine and 14.
While playing in the water, one of them struggled to stay afloat.
Kelantan police chief Datuk Shafien Mamat explained, “The others tried to help their friend but they started getting pulled into the river. Seeing this, Wan Muhammad Azammudin, who was at the riverbank, immediately jumped in to rescue them. He managed to save the boys but was swept away in the process.”
