12-year-old killed while crossing road on skateboard; Hospital Umum personnel sued
A 12-year-old Singaporean boy who was crossing a road on his skateboard was killed yesterday when he was hit by a Mini Cooper.
Austin Chen, staying in Bangsar, died on the spot shortly after the 4 p.m. collision. He was a foreign student studying in La Salle Secondary School. Prior to the collision, he was attending a club meeting at his school.
Police said Austin was skateboarding across a road just in front of La Salle Secondary School after the meeting when Liew Man Fah, 29, of SS2 struck him in his Mini Cooper, knocking him to the ground.
According to a witness, upon noticing Chen crossing the road out of the blue, Mr. Liew immediately braked hard to avoid hitting him. In the process, he lost control of the car, which skidded, and resulted in Chen being knocked down.
Chen’s father, a Singaporean who has stayed and worked in Bangsar for more than 5 years, rushed to the scene even earlier than the ambulance just to find his only son lying unconsciously in the pool of blood. Austin was eventually taken to the nearest Hospital Umum by his father, where he was announced dead.
45-year-old Chen Jit Kong, who was thronged with grief, blamed the personnel of Hospital Umum for the delay. On top of that he was also sprung with regrets as he said he should not have bought his son the skateboard.
According to Chen, his wife was still left uniformed about their son’s death as he feared “she might not be able to face it and hence do stupid stuff.” Chen’s wife was staying with her parents in Singapore.
The Petaling Jaya Police Department is currently still investigating on the accident. Chen has filed suit against Hospital Umum for their negligence.
