On Sunday (28th May), Facebook user Kugan Kathegesen shared a video of a car accident on his account. The video, which was taken from his dashcam, shows the collision between a white Perodua and a black Proton.
“On the way to Kedah today, I witnessed an accident, happened right in front of me. A white Perodua crashed,” he wrote.
In the video, a white car can be seen driving in the slow lane when a black sedan from the middle lane turns abruptly to the left, causing the white car to crash into a drain. Then, Kathegesen stops his car to remove the baby who was trapped inside the white car.
“The father, mother, and their 2 kids managed to come out. One of the kid was like 1 year old, stuck inside the car. The father kept on asking for help to pull his baby out. The doors was stuck. Eventually, I managed to force open the door and pull the baby out. There was a lot of blood and the baby don’t seem to be moving. The mother started to cry while carrying the baby. I was heartbroken,” he explained.
However, what angered Kathegesen the most is that the Proton driver, who is a woman, “never bothered to come and check on the victim”. He also added that it took the ambulance 30 minutes to arrive.
