Juliana joined the search and rescue team (SAR) at a resort in Bentong where the remains of a 6-year-old boy Emmanuel Chang was found after he got swept away by floodwaters with his family on Saturday.

Untuk pengetahuan semua, mayat budak 6 tahun itu, masih ada di hospital kerana belum dituntut waris. Jadi ujian DNA sedang dilakukan.
