Friends and family of SIlent Scream
This is just to inform you that Silent Scream's lead vocalist, John Samuel Oommen has been hospitalized. John was badly assaulted in his attempt to aid an old lady who was being carjacked by 3 armed men. In the events that followed, the armed men slashed John's neck with a 'parang', resulting in severe lost of blood. He was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital. Despite what had happened, the 3 armed assailant is still on the loose.
The injury incurred were severe. The 'parang' very narrowly missed a few major arteries in the neck, sparing any irreversible damage, and possibly fatality. Thanks to the effort of the emergency medical team, John is in stable condition and is now resting in the hospital.
We hope that you can join us as we pray for John's recovery and the prompt arrests of the 3 armed assailants. More importantly, we hope to spread the message over the importance of keeping one's vigilance over their own safety, especially when driving late at night in the streets of Kuala Lumpur. The world is seemingly becoming a dangerous place.
Your sincerely, Silent Scream
Damn. Never thought I'll be reading this sort of news happening to someone I know. This really sucks. Makes you realize that there are so many important things in life.
Get well soon, John. I'm praying that you'll be back on your feet as healthy as ever.
The assailants will get what they deserved. Cruel bastards.
