(pembetulan bilangan mangsa di hospital di para dua)

KUALA LUMPUR, 21 Ogos (Bernama) -- Sebanyak 37 orang terkorban dalam

nahas bas ekspres terburuk di negara ini apabila bas ekspres yang dinaiki 53

orang terjunam 60 meter ke dalam gaung di Km3.5 Jalan Genting Highlands hari

ini.

Kemalangan itu juga mengakibatkan 16 orang cedera dengan 14 daripada mereka

dilaporkan kritikal. Mereka yang cedera kini dirawat di Hospital Selayang

(lapan), Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) (lima), Hospital Sungai Buloh (dua) dan

Hospital Bentong (satu).

Kemalangan kira-kira pukul 2.45 petang itu berlaku ketika bas berkenaan yang

menawarkan perkhidmatan ulang alik dari Kuala Lumpur ke Genting Highlands

menuruni jalan curam dari puncak pusat peranginan itu menuju ke ibu kota.

Operasi mencari dan menyelamat kesemua mangsa yang terlibat dalam nahas bas

itu ditamatkan 9.30 malam ini dan ia diumumkan Menteri Kesejahteraan Bandar,

Perumahan dan Kerajaan Tempatan Datuk Abdul Rahman Dahlan.

"Gerakan untuk menyelamat telah selesai dan laporan yang kita terima ialah

seramai 37 terkorban, 25 lelaki dan 12 perempuan," katanya.

UPDATE3 KEMALANGAN-BAS 2 KUALA LUMPUR

Timbalan Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan Datuk Dr S. Jeyaindran berkata lima pakar

dan lapan pegawai perubatan dari unit forensik HKL sedang bersiap-sedia untuk

melakukan bedah siasat mayat mangsa yang dihantar ke hospital berkenaan.

Pasukan mencari dan menyelamat yang melibatkan kira-kira 450 anggota

termasuk bomba, polis dan Jabatan Pertahanan Awam terpaksa menggunakan kren,

pengusung, tali dan unit anjing K9 untuk mengesan dan mengeluarkan mangsa.

Sultan Pahang Sultan Ahmad Shah, Menteri Besar Pahang Datuk Seri Adnan

Yaakob dan anggota Parlimen Bentong Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai turut berada di

lokasi kejadian untuk meninjau operasi.

Insiden itu turut mengakibatkan kesesakan lalu lintas teruk di laluan

berkenaan.

Meskipun pihak berkuasa belum mendedahkan punca sebenar kemalangan,

bagaimanapun antara mangsa yang cedera mendakwa brek bas gagal berfungsi sebelum

terjunam ke dalam gaung itu seperti yang diceritakan warga Bangladesh, Ali

Haider Shyed Haider, 46, yang kini dirawat di Hospital Kuala Lumpur.

Penolong Ketua Pengarah Operasi Jabatan Bomba dan Penyelamat Malaysia Datuk

Soiman Jahid berkata berdasarkan pemerhatian, dengan keadaan cerun yang agak

menjunam, bas boleh tergelincir ke gaung sekiranya tidak dikawal dengan

sempurna.

UPDATE3 KEMALANGAN-BAS 3 (AKHIR) KUALA LUMPUR

"Keadaan fizikal jalan ini menuruni cerun. Memanglah cerun ini agak

menjunam, jadi sekiranya ia tidak dikawal dengan sempurna menyebabkan bas

tergelincir dan jatuh ke gaung. Ini penilaian awal daripada pihak penyelamat,"

katanya.

Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak di laman twitter mengucapkan

takziah kepada keluarga mangsa nahas bas ekspres itu.

Sementara Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin pula mengarahkan

pihak berkuasa agar segera menubuhkan jawatankuasa petugas menyiasat kemalangan

itu.

Kemalangan buruk lain yang pernah berlaku di kawasan Genting Highlands ialah

pada Julai 1996 apabila 17 orang termasuk enam kanak-kanak terbunuh selepas bas

yang dinaiki mereka terhumban kira-kira 100 meter ke dalam gaung ketika pulang

daripada menyertai hari keluarga di Genting Highlands.

Pusat peranginan Genting Highlands merupakan destinasi percutian popular

bagi rakyat tempatan dan juga pelancong dari negara seperti Singapura, India,

Taiwan, Jepun dan Indonesia.
