NEGERIKU DILANGGAR TODAK
Take a break . . . . .this is not about cancer !
A 30 year old man was rushed to the hospital with a chest injury. He was swimming in the sea near Perhentian Island at about 9.30 pm one night. Suddenly he was hit on the chest by a sharp object; and he found a long 'ikan todak' stuck to his chest. He was rushed to a nearby district hospital where he was noted to have pneumothorax (paru-paru bocor) and a chest tube was inserted. He was then transferred to me for further management.
In this era of digital technology, the culprit was easily captured; of course, on camera.
This is it . . . . .
Needlefish or Swordfish or Garfish
To the contrary of the famous Malay epic; Temasik Dilanggar Todak (heronya budak botak bernama Hang Nadim), ikan todak is usually not dangerous

Jadi, sekiranya anda atau seseorang dilanggar todak, ia bukanlah satu serangan tapi satu kemalangan.
Jika sekiranya anda atau seseorang dilanggar kereta, ia bukanlah satu kemalangan tapi satu kecelakaan.
. . . . . fikir fikirkanlah !
