Following the freak accident yesterday (June 27) where a coconut fell from a roadside tree in Penang directly onto the head of a female motorcycle pillion rider, it appears that the local authorities are stepping up to fix the problem.

The Penang Island City Council (MBPP) is now cutting down trees that pose potential threats to road users. 

Based on a report by Sinar Harian, 11 coconut trees around Jalan Teluk Kumbar, Penang, have since been cut down.

Bayan Lepas State Assemblyman Azrul Mahathir Aziz shared that the move was taken after a falling coconut severely injured the pillion rider. 

“I have conducted a survey with MBPP representatives to identify trees that endanger road users, especially on the side of the road to be cut down. As a safety measure and not wanting the same incident to happen again, we decided to cut down coconut trees by the side of the road, which is said to be a risk to road users,” he said.

According to a post by the Facebook page, Penang Kini, the victim sustained rather serious injuries, including a broken right shoulder, a broken left arm, and broken ribs. And while she is still being monitored at a hospital in Penang, she has thankfully regained consciousness. 

We genuinely hope that she has a speedy recovery from this ordeal.
