In February 2018, Balcony Safety Guard Siti Ibrahim had to leave the balcony of her apartment complex because she had been shot in the face twice in one night.
The incident occurred in the evening of April 3.
The first time was when Ibrahim was asleep at her apartment when she was shot.
“I was sleeping in my bed and I heard a noise and woke up and when I looked out the door, I saw my friends lying on the floor,” she said.
She said that when she went to help her friends, she was hit by a bullet.
“After that, I could not move my legs,” she told the ABC.
“My knees were shaking and my body was shaking.”
She said she was able to pull her friend out of the pool and called an ambulance.
But she said she had to stay inside because she was bleeding heavily from the back of her head.
The second time was in July, when Ibrahim awoke to find her attackers holding her arms and trying to punch her.
“I saw my friend lying on my bed, and I saw the attacker on top of her, trying to attack me.
I ran out of my room and called the police.
I was scared,” she recalled.”
It was a nightmare, and after I woke up, I went back to sleep and it happened again.
I woke again and it was the same thing.”
In October, Ibrahim had been called to her apartment in Pangkalan Bun for an urgent appointment to have her earmuffs removed.
She had to be rushed to the hospital, where doctors removed the bullet from her head, and she was declared brain dead.
“There was no way to stop the bleeding, and when they did remove the bullet, the next day I had to wait another 24 hours before they could do the earmuff removal.
So I went into shock,” Ibrahim said.”
When I came out of shock, the only thing I could do was cry and scream,” she added.
The court case against the attackers is still ongoing.
But Ibrahim said that despite the death threats, the security guard still keeps a close watch on her apartment.
“She has my number and keeps me posted on the safety of my friends, and on the balcony.
She’s a good girl,” she laughed.”
We just want her to be OK, and if we don’t get her, she will die,” she also said.
