OTHER BUS MISHAPS

MARCH 2015

A 71-year-old woman was injured as she was alighting from a bus at Marsiling Drive.

Madam Ang Kim Seng was on her way home from the market when the accident happened.

As she alighted from SMRT bus service 903 in front of Block 23, she sustained a deep cut about a quarter the size of an adult's palm on her right foot.

A passenger called for an ambulance while another tried to contact Madam Ang's next-of-kin.

Madam Ang was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

Madam Nancy Teo, 70, was on SMRT bus service number 106 when she lost her grip on the grab bar she was holding and fell onto the stairs next to her.

The bus had been making a right turn from Clementi to Bukit Batok on July 18.

The retiree, who was heading St Luke's hospital in Bukit Batok to deliver lunch to her sister, slammed her head against a metal pole, causing it to bleed profusely.

A female passenger tended to the wound using wads of tissue paper. Madam Teo ended up with six stitches on the back of her head.

She hit her head against the door and fractured her left hand.

The mother of four said the bus stopped after she fell and the driver and a male passenger helped her back to her seat.
