Elderly Live Accident on SBS Bus 145 ( 1)

Elderly Live Accident on SBS Bus 145 (2)

Fung-DSC00322-12Nov09(6Nov09)

On 6-11-2009 (Saturday) at about 10.25pm. Mdm Fung (78 yrs old) aboard a SBS bus number 145 in front of Amara Hotel at Tanjong Pagar Road. After she got on to the bus, it started moving. She found a seat which behind the driver. Before she could seat down properly the bus was making a right turn at a very fast speed. As she also has not seat down properly, the force was too strong and there also no handle for her to hold on to. Thus she fell from her seat and injured her left ear and bleeding seriously.

She wanted to note that the driver was making a false claim that she had already well seated in her seat and said that she fell on her own. She heard the driver called to the bus company and said that Mdm Fung fell down on her own. The driver even asked Mdm Fung whether she had any personal insurance or not? If yes he can note down the detail of the insurance. Mdm Fung was so pain at that moment and so angry of his careless driving attitude which caused her so pain and bleeding seriously.

She was later sent to the hospital (SGH) by ambulance. She was Sutured on her left ear and went home on 7-11-09 6am. But, when she reached home, at about 10am, she felt very pain of her left leg and can’t even stand up and move on. So she was admitted to SGH by ambulance again. She was discharged from SGH on 9-11-09 afternoon.

On 12-11-09 afternoon the doctor told her that her ear was still swollen thus can not do anything of the sutured part. Her next appointment with the doctor is 19-11-09. Mdm Fung told me that on 6-11-09, the doctor cut a small part of her ear to release the black blood if not in future she may need to cut off her whole left ear should there be any inflection.

I have contacted the staffs (Miss Kwong and Miss Shi) of SBS. They are unable to answer any of my questions. One of the question that I asked was the driver from China? Why I asked this question was because recently there were many passengers complaint about the China driver.

The other question that I asked Miss Shi was: will SBS give any compensation to Mdm Fung if it was the false of the driver?

No answer from Miss Shi due to the following reasons:

* I am a volunteer, SBS will only follow up with Mdm Fung or her daughter.

*This incident was under investigation. So SBS can not comment anything.

I told Miss Shi that according to ageing study, 1/3 of the elderly will die within one year if they fall down. There was an elderly stayed next block to Mdm Fung, she fell down and passed away after two weeks she admitted to SGH.

I have raised some ideas to Miss Shi for the safety of the passengers and for SBS to maintain their quality services.

I have an interviewed with Mdm Fung in Mandarin and Cantonese on 12-11-09. The video will be uploaded to the Happyangelclub youtube.

Note:

*Mdm Fung said that the staff of SBS did call her and visited her in the hospital. She said that the traffic police officer was so nice and showed very much concern of her when recording the statement with her.

*On 13-11-2009 (Friday) 5pm. Mdm Fung went to the CC to wait to meet her MP.
She got a number 15.

She waited till 8pm, A male helper of MP attended to her and listen to her carefully.
Mdm Fung was happy with his patient with her.

She was not able to meet the MP because there were more than 60 people waiting to meet the MP.

*****************************************

Latest update:

SBS agreed to Compensate Mdm Fung in $$$ which finally Mdm Fund accepted it.

    巴士车长开车技术有待改进

    (2010-04-09)

    ● 林喜莲

      巴士和地铁是我每天上下班、出外消闲的交通工具。我在很久以前就察觉到许多巴士车长的开车技术实在让人感到心惊胆跳。只是和一般人一样,基于惰性,常常都是在抱怨之后不了了之。

      最近连续数天乘巴士都碰到驾车技术不行的车长,令乘客非常不舒适而且也不安全。

      以3月26日傍晚6时50分左右为例,我和几个同事,包括一名孕妇在内,在浮尔顿酒店旁边的巴士车站搭75号,要到滨海中心某大酒店出席慈善晚宴。然而,从上车到下车短短的几个巴士车站,却让我们血压飙升了不少。中年巴士车长不但没有保持基本的安全距离,还紧随着前面的车子,当前面的车子减速或到交通灯前时,就在千钧一发的一刹那,他才猛然刹车,害得站着的乘客前倾后仰,连20岁出头的年轻人也要紧紧地抓着扶手,并忍不住向他旁边的女性朋友投诉。我心里想,年轻人尚且如此,老人家该如何是好?同时,我也很庆幸那名怀孕的同事有位子坐。

      3月27日傍晚6时45分左右,我在淡滨尼初级学院旁的车站搭17号回家。短短几个站的车程也是险象环生。根据一般开车原则,司机必须在慢慢减速之后才踩刹车器,让车子完全停下来。但是这位车长却是有机会让他猛踩油门时绝对不错过,即使知道快到车站,可能必须停车时,他还是要尝试超车,等到发现前面车站有乘客要上车,他才又把车子驶回最靠左的车道,紧急刹车!就在其中一个车站,因为前面有三辆巴士,巴士离原定停车处还有一段距离,他就让乘客下车,准备直接超车。随后发现在同一个车站有乘客要上车,他才赶紧把车驶回巴士车道停下。这时,车子是停在巴士要离站的最前头,那个乘客必须跑一段短距离才能上车。

      舒适安全的巴士车程是我们作为乘客对公共交通服务提供者的最基本要求。希望有关业者(请别告诉我75号巴士和17号巴士是不同的交通服务提供者)能重视这些问题。如果是机械问题,那就增加维修密度,着手改进。如果是巴士车长的开车技术问题,那就该重新培训他们。
