Wong, 57, died at about 9.45am at the Pantai Medical Center. In the robbery which happened two days ago, Wong fell from the first floor of his two-storey bungalow while attempting to escape and get help after three
men broke into his house.
Crime Investigation Department head Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the incident happened when Wong's 25-year-old daughter and the family maid, who were in the kitchen, were approached by three men armed with machetes.
"One suspect waited on the ground while two others went upstairs. Wong was then in his computer room while his son was in the shower," Ku told reporters.
Police believed Wong slipped and fell after he stepped on the window railing on the first floor of the house while attempting to escape. Ku said the suspects fled with a wallet, a handphone and RM300 belonging to Wong's daughter after Wong fell. He urged those with information on the incident to contact the nearest police station.
Wong was MBAM president from June 2006 to June 2008. He played an active role in encouraging bumiputra contractors, building services contractors, building material suppliers and manufacturers to enrol as MBAM members.
In recognition of his contributions to the progress and development of MBAM, Wong was conferred the Kesatria Mangku Negara (K.M.N) award by Yang Dipertuan Agong in 2002. He was conferred the Datukship by the Sultan of Pahang last year. -- Bernama
