The shipping container may have been a good hiding place. In fact it was probably too good of a hiding place for Fahim. So good that it took him to a whole other country.
Workers at Malaysia’s Port Klang were unloading the shipping containers and saw Fahim come out from one of those shipping contains. At first the workers though he may be a victim of human trafficking, but immediately realized he was in distress. Workers tried to talk to Fahim, but he couldn’t understand him.
