The mourning atmosphere surrounded the family of Triani Puji Irianti (49). Her home in the Klitren Village of Terban, Yogyakarta, was visited by mourners. The mother of two children was lying weakly in bed. She was still in shock to accept the fact that her youngest daughter, Agatha Pinasthika Wikandari, passed away on Wednesday afternoon (5/10) after five days of fighting with death, following the back brain operation in Panti Rapih Hospital Yogyakarta.
Triani recounted the fateful incident that occurred on Friday morning (30/9). Previously, the youngest daughter told her goodbye, telling her that she would attend the student friendship camp in Imogiri with her friends. Traditional snacks were prepared for the trip. As she kissed the hand of the mother, Wikandari said if that day she would not come back home so that her mother need not worry. "Mom, goodbye, I would not go home tonight," she said at the time.
Wikandari rode her bike down the narrow alley. Upon reaching the Jalan Cik Ditiro, when she was crossing the road, all of a sudden a bus hit Wikandari. She fell. Her head hit the asphalt. Blood spattered from the back of her head. This girl was immediately taken to Panti Rapih Hospital until finally went into coma for 5 days. On Wednesday (5/10) afternoon, her life was beyond help.
The mother had no idea if her daughter would go away that fast. The Friday morning chat turned out to be the last encounter with the child. "She just enjoyed happy times in college," she recalled. However, God had another plan. Triani’s happiness with her daughter’s admittance to UGM was tested with the departure of the child forever. In fact, it is not even five years that Triani became a widow after the departure of her husband.
Wikandari was a freshman of Faculty of Mathematics and Sciences, Department of Statistics class of 2011. In accordance with the UGM rules, new students are prohibited from using motor vehicles on campus. Many freshmen come to the campus by city bus or bicycle. One of them was Wikandari.
The news of her death spread to students of the Faculty of Maths and Natural Sciences. Dozens of students came to pay the last respect to the deceased lying in the coffin. May all prayers be accepted by God. Amen!
