Many on-lookers were moved to tears when a loving father figure rushed to help a fainted officer stand up again during a parade at the Malaysian Prisons College in Kajang yesterday, 21 July

According to New Straits Times, 22-year-old Nik Mohd Adhar was taking part in a march at the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs' (KPDNHEP) enforcers day celebration when he collapsed due to the heat.

According to photos that have gone viral, the young KPDNHEP enforcement officer can be seen struggling to stand before squatting and falling backwards onto the ground

Watching from the sidelines was his 60-year-old uncle, Abdul Aziz Ya'acob, who quickly walked into the middle of the ceremony to help his nephew as the other officers continued to follow protocol and stand in attention.

While trying not to disturb the procession, the elderly man rushed from the guest tents, and even lost his slippers in the process, to slowly prop the officer back into formation.

In a video recording of the incident, the medical team came a few seconds later with a stretcher. However, the young man eventually regained consciousness and was able to stand on his own two feet to complete the ceremony.

Clad in pink against the sea of officers in black, the scene drew many tears as it unfolded

Among the audience was Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi who said he was also not spared from shedding a tear.

"Those present at the KPDNHEP parade this morning would have witnessed how much love a father has for his son," he wrote in a Facebook post.

The minister said in that moment he was surprised to see the elderly man support the officer despite his age, and for his willpower to stand the young man back in line, instead of taking him off the field.

"Seeing the indescribable sacrifice of a father, everyone in attendance had tears flowing down their cheeks. I was no exception."

Nik Adhar later told the press that he was also close to tears when he felt his uncle holding him up during the ceremony

"When I blacked out, my mind was empty. I had already blacked out one time, then the second time, abah was suddenly hugging me from behind," he told Buletin TV3.

"I wanted to cry at the time but I kept it in my heart. Then I told him that I could do it, I could stand up again."

The KPDNHEP enforcement officer from Kelantan shared that he called his uncle 'abah' because Abdul Aziz has taken care of him and has even called him a son of his own after both of his parents died when he was a little boy.

"I had to follow protocol, but a father's love doesn't have protocols," he added.
