Haunted Rapid Bus? - they should also consult the "ghost busters"

= == = The latest report on the investigations show that the people involved are doing it without carrying out any tests. Just visual inspection and that the door is locked. What they should do is to take our the whole door and set up a test rig with the help of SIRIM and subject the door and frame to a simulated bus vibration. Under such condition the latch could be unlatched if the design is faulty. They should also check with the lock manufacturer.

Woman's death still a mystery

GEORGE TOWN: Puspakom has found no fault with the RapidPenang bus from which a Rela member fell to her death through the emergency exit door last Saturday.

RapidPenang Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Azhar Ahmad said the national vehicle inspection unit completed its investigations on Wednesday. "Puspakom confirmed that the glass pane covering the door knob was not tampered with. "Nor was there any sign the door had been forced open from the outside as it remained latched."

He added that an internal investigation by the bus manufacturer also found the emergency exit door was secured at the time of the accident. Azhar said the death of 35-year-old Ng Siam Kiang remains a mystery. "We have no plausible explanation for Ng's death after investigating the accident from all angles," he said. He added that the cones placed in front of the emergency exits of all RapidPenang buses will remain there until further notice.

"The cones prevent passengers from leaning against the emergency exits," Azhar said. Ng was on her way to meet her husband on the Air Itam-bound bus last Saturday morning when she fell off the moving vehicle. It is believed she fell through the emergency exit door.

Emergency Door Incident: RapidPenang To Get Bus Maker's Services

PENANG, Oct 16 (Bernama) -- RapidPenang Sdn Bhd will get the services of the bus manufacturer concerned to find out how an emergency door could open on its own. The company had sought the assistance of DRB Hicom Defense Technologies Sdn Bhd in investigating the incident, said state traffic management, information and community relations committee chairman, Datuk Dr Teng Hock Nan. "We want to know how the emergency door could open on its own as checks made by the bus company showed that it was secure and safe," he told reporters after a check on RapidPenang buses here Tuesday. This followed the death at around 10.40am on Saturday of a 35-year-old trader who fell from a bus on its way to Jalan Air Itam.

The victim, Ng Siam Kiang, suffered from head injuries and died on the way to the Penang Hospital at around 11.35am. This was the first accident involving a bus passenger since RapidPenang started operating in Penang in end-July this year. Dr Teng called on the bus company management to be proactive in ensuring the safety of passengers by placing a cone at the emergency door so that passengers do not stand too close to the door. He also advised passengers to be disciplined when in a bus and to observe all the safety instructions. Meanwhile, RapidPenang's chief executive officer Azhar Ahmad denied claims that the company was not concerned with the safety and comfort of passengers. "Before starting out, a bus driver has to conduct safety checks, which cover the bus condition, electrical system, engine and related matters," he said.

RapidPenang may be sued; By : Aaron Ngui

The family of Ng Siam Kiang, who died after falling out of an emergency exit door on a moving RapidPenang bus on Saturday, is contemplating legal action against the ompany. The deceased's younger brother, Tiang Phai, 33, said it was an option the family was considering. "Right now, we just want to get over my sister's funeral and our grief before deciding," he said at Siam Kiang's funeral yesterday. Siam Kiang's body was cremated at the Batu Gantung crematorium and her ashes interred at the Bandar Baru cemetery here.

More than 50 friends, relatives and well-wishers attended the funeral. Also present to pay their respects were Batu Lanchang state assemblyman Ng Fook On, Datuk Keramat assemblyman Ong Thean Lye and Tanjung member of parliament Chow Kon Yeow. Ong, a member of the bus company's board, said bus drivers would be conducting door checks daily as a safety measure. He added that a cone would be placed at the emergency exit to prevent anyone from leaning on the door. "These measures are being taken to prevent any untoward incident from happening again." Siam Kiang had been on an Air Itam-bound bus on her way to meet her husband with his lunch, which she had bought from Komtar. She was standing beside the emergency exit at the back of the bus when she fell out on Jalan Air Itam, about 10.40am. She died in hospital at 11.35am of serious head injuries.

Strange happenings can take place and when new buses are put to use for service, they should performed a “blessing service” to get rid of any “evil spirits”. This Penang bus with the “emergency door” opening by itself can be in the realm of “believe it or not” or another case of Made in Malaysia Boleh – when the door was fixed, they forgot to put in the door latch – a shoddy job again.
And for the tragic death of the man and his two children, the police have been very kind and said that case is “sudden death & no foul play and not “murder & suicide” as any exercise of investigation would be a futility.

Woman Dies After Falling Through Emergency Exit Door Of Bus

PENANG, Oct 14 (Bernama) -- A woman died after she fell through the emergency exit door of a bus of Rapid Penang Sdn Bhd here Saturday. Ng Siam Kiang, 35, a distributor of cakes prepared by the family, fell off when the door in the middle on the right side of the bus flung open suddenly as it was pulling out of a bus stop near the state mosque at 10.40am. She died of severe head injuries soon after being brought to the Penang Hospital. The incident was disclosed by RapidPenang Chief Executive Officer Azhar Ahmad who called on Ng's family at the Farlim Crematorium in Air Itam here Sunday. He said it could not be explained how the door could have opened when the protective glass over the door handle remained unbroken. "We are puzzled as to how the door could have opened because it cannot be opened from the outside," he told reporters. Azhar said he would leave it to the police and Puspakom, the computerised vehicle inspection centre, to investigate the incident. He said RapidPenang would look into the compensation payment for the family of Ng after getting a report on the investigation. "RapidPenang will take immediate safety measures by placing a traffic cone at the emergency exit door of its buses to prevent passengers from standing near or leaning against the door," he said. Ng is said to have been leaning against the door when the accident happened. She was standing as all the seats had been taken up. There were about 30 passengers in the bus which can take up to 55 people. == = == =

Malaysia- Is it a good destination to learn English?
A fellow press friend of mine yesterday asked me which country, Malaysia or Singapore, is good destination to learn English. I advised her to study in Singapore, where I studied English too five years ago, a safe country that has strict rule of law. Malaysia is a country where an innocent Mongolian woman was shot to death and exploded into pieces by military-use C4 explosive fastened to her body. I will say this sentence to everybody asked me about Malaysia. This will be recalled for the people of Mongolia every time we think of Malaysia.

Malaysia is no longer a destination for Mongolians either to study or travel. I heard a number of Mongolians going Malaysia to study has been decreased a lot since last year when our beloved mother of two was killed in a jungle outside KL.

I have been to Malaysia actually, when I was studying in Singapore. I remember that when I was under passport control at the Singapore-Malaysia border, a Malay passport controller smiled at me and told me "Bat Khaan! Genghis Khan!". He said something to his fellow customs officers in Malaysian and told me "Welcome to Malaysia!". My first impression on the country of Malaysia had this wonderful start. I felt like I was the first Mongolian coming to Malaysia. We will not hear this nice welcoming from a passport controller of Russia now, a country what we believed as "brother in steel friendship" for over 70 years in the past under Soviet ally.

At that time, how can we know that a Mongolian woman will be killed in this country brutally and her entrance record will be deleted from immigration database. Personally, I think these people, Baginda and his family, including the two police officers and Najib Tun Razak in who gave the order, are the most disgusting people on the globe as same as those terrorists who killed thousands of people on September 11, 2001 by using civilian airplane as missiles.

Who authorizes those people to use airplane as missiles? Who authorizes those people to use military explosives to kill an innocent woman?
