Be kind or be cruel?
Act of kindness ends in tragedy
KUALA LUMPUR: An act of kindness ended in tragedy when a man trying to rescue a hit-and-run victim in the middle of the road caused the death of a motorcyclist and left another seriously injured.
The incident began when a hit-and-run accident left a motorcyclist lying injured at the KM11 of the Cheras-Kajang highway at around 11pm on Sunday.
A passer-by stopped his car by the roadside and went to help the injured man.
While he was helping the victim, two motorcycles, believed to be speeding, rammed into his parked car.
One motorcyclist was flung to the other side of the road and into the path of an oncoming Proton Wira, killing him on the spot. The other motorcyclist was seriously injured.
Selangor Public Order and Traffic police chief Supt Che Hussin Omar said the deceased was identified as 20-year-old Mohd Noor Affendy Adnan.
The two injured men were rushed to Kajang Hospital for treatment.
this remind me of a story... long long time ago, there was a kind hearted motorist, stop her car & give way for a cycling pedestrian who are trying to cross a road.. So the pedestrian took his bicycle & cross the road... walk, walk, walk and WHAM!!.. a motorcyclist came from behind hit the pedestrian .. sad indeed~ :(
