Recently, a TikTok video of a small boy falling through a hole and into a shallow fish pond next to KL’s River of Life went viral.

Fortunately, the boy was saved by his father’s quick response.

The issue prompted netizens to criticise DBKL for not properly fencing the area which is dangerous for young children.

Following the video, pictures of the shady fencing have also been circulating on Twitter.



Netizens slam DBKL

Social media users expressed their anger and disappointment towards DBKL and what appeared to be incomplete work. Some even called for people to sue the city’s council for the hazard.

“I work in the field of designing safety features like this. If this one was approved, an investigation must be done on the organisation,” commented a user.

“This shouldn’t even pass the discussion stage!”

Another user commented, “Which architect did DBKL hire to design railings like this? Stupid.”

Politician says the issue must go viral

The picture has also managed to capture the attention of politicians as well as lawyers who called for DBKL to do something about it immediately.

DAP’s Ketari assemblyperson Young Syefura Othman reshared the picture and said that it should be made viral.
