As children and grandchildren, it is in our interest to provide the best possible care for our grandparents. This care can sometimes come in the form of cooking a simple meal, doing the laundry, or taking them to the clinic for their check-ups. For 22 year old Izzah Shahirah Sahri, an act of filial piety turns into a catastrophe.

It is reported that Izzah was driving her grandparents Mohd Salleh Kasron, 75 and Miskina Naining, 70. when their silver Perodua Alza collided with a lorry at Kampung Pinggir, Johor this morning. They were on their way to a clinic to collect the grandparents’ medication. Reports have said that all three victims died at the scene, while the lorry driver escaped with no injuries.
