A young man passed away in Standard Chartered KL Marathon 2010 today.

AT 9:08 PM
[update: in the 8 p.m. news just now, the reporter only mentioned who get the champion and who's the 1st runner for the event. They didn't mention single word about this tragedy.]

... due to negligence of medical assistance and medical aids along the marathon track.

The tragedy was happened in Dataran Merdeka in a marathon organized by Standard Chartered.

The young man, Lim was not feeling well during the running session.

He was collapsed and no medical assistance were offered until 20 minutes later. During the 20 minutes, the DBKL officers were just standing there and stare at them and did nothing.

People around, including a doctor tried to help so that his pulse didn't stop. Lim's pulse stopped twice and the participants and the doctor helped to  regain Lim's pulse for twice.

When St. John's ambulance was there, they have no adequate medical devices to help Lim. Hence, the ambulance sent Lim to Hospital Kuala Lumpur in a very rapid speed.

However, Lim has passed away due to the inadequate of medical equipment and professional medical assistance on the marathon track and during he was in the ambulance.

This case is another should-not-happen-tragedy after the BHP petrol station refused to borrow fire extinguisher case.

And this time, the DBKL officers would claim that they thought Lim was just acting and playing around with his friend so they never bothered to give a hand while the kind people were all doing CPR for Lim and helping.

This, is this a Malaysia culture?

 and share this with your friends. Awareness is needed seriously.

R.I.P. Lim.
