According to Shin Min Daily News reporters, doctors operated on an 88 year-old aunty whose foot was left badly mangled after the driver of SMRT Bus 913 drove off while she was in the middle of alighting at a bus stop in Marsiling. They had to remove the sole of her foot due to the extensive damage caused.
The incident took place at 12.54pm on 3rd April at a bus stop near Marsiling’s Woodlands Town Garden. Eye witnesses say that the aunty had just gotten 1 foot out the door of the bus before the bus driver recklessly drove off, causing the 88 year-old to suffer serious fractures that pierced through the skin on her foot.
The family members of the 88 year-old are said to be very angry with the bus driver and SMRT and have said they will take legal action against them.
