TRP learned that authorities found Oyen near the crash site and provided the animal with first aid before sending it for further treatment.

The stray, male cat suffered a 15cm gash from the top to the bottom of the ribs, believed to have either been caused by debris from the crash or when the animal was spooked and tried to run away during the incident.

Oyen is currently in stable condition and was eating, but is still scared and traumatised by what happened.

The cat received a flood of get well soon messages from netizens who also came to express gratitude towards the vets and authorities who came to the feline’s aid.

10 people were killed, including the pilot, co-pilot, six passengers and two motorists, when a twin-engine Beechcraft 390 (Premier 1) aircraft crashed on the Guthrie Highway on Thursday (August 17) while travelling from Langkawi, Kedah to the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport.
