Dear A.S.S. Editor
A 24 year old Singaporean man has succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday morning in a Singapore hospital, after not waking up form the coma since he was knocked down by a car in Johor Baru last Friday night.
Justinian Tan was in JB with five of his friends for late night dinner on Friday, and was heading for their car at Jalan Dato Abdullah Tahir at Taman Abad around 3.00 am, when a Malaysian registered car hot him and another friend from behind. According to the other friends, the authorities there took a long time to render aid, with the ambulance only arriving 20 minutes after the accident happened. Justinian required emergency surgery upon arriving at the Johor hospital, but the hospital allegedly did not have the complete tools to complete the procedure.
It was also alleged that the hospital staff refused to do preliminary checks on the two injured men until their families offered to pay the hospital. Both men were eventually transferred to Singapore hospitals at 11 am, but Justinian was confirmed to be brain dead on Monday. He sadly passed away without waking up from his coma.
Witnesses also said the car driver sped off after the accident, but he reportedly surrendered himself to the Malaysian police later.
