These situations made the villagers were not patient and without even asking permission from Tok Dalang they directly reach and climbed the tree at the same time. They fought and punched each other just for the durians.

The villagers were shocked. That day was the last day they could taste the durians from the tree. Since that day, the village started to be named as Durian Runtuh Village.
