According to KLIA OCPD Asst Comm Zulkifli Adamshah, all the deceased victims were foreign workers, out of which eight were men, and three were female. The remaining 33 victims of the 11.10pm accident have been rushed to several different hospitals in Kajang, Serdang and Putrajaya. Most of them have been confirmed as Bangladesh, Nepal or Indonesia nationals, with a few yet to be identified.

Due to the severity of the accident, members of the Fire and Rescue Department, Malaysia Civil Defence Force (APM), Ministry of Health and MASKargo scene were dispatched to the scene to retrieve victims and remove the bus from the drain. It took an hour for the victims to be rescued, as they had to cut through several parts of the bus which was wedged firmly in the drain. Zone Five (South Selangor) Fire and Rescue Department Chief Nik Mohd Fadhil Salleh said,

“We did a thorough check on the location before deciding to stabilise the bus, then we started retrieving the victims. We used a method called ‘hauling’ to rescue them, which involves safety ropes, ladders and stretchers.”

It is currently still unclear as to what caused the loss of control, and the cause of the accident remains under investigation.

This is undoubtedly one of the most devastating accidents to have struck on Malaysian soil this year. We hope that the remaining victims will be able to recover swiftly, and express our condolences to the families and loved ones of those that have passed.
