Mrs Chong Nyok Kiew a Malaysian woman 57 years old was jailed 5 days on Wednesday(24 August 2016) for punching tigerair stewardess Miss Veronica Siau Yen Ting 26 years old.
On the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore, Miss Siau had informed the passengers seated in two rows that she had placed a pair of crutches belonging to other passenger in the overhead compartment above them and told them to be careful.
After the flight had landed, other passenger wanted to retrieve their own belonging but accidentally cause one of the crutches to drop down on Mrs Chong head.
She was unhappy and shouted that she “wanted to know how the cabin crew would answer for this” and that “sorry was no cure”.
Miss Siau apologised to Mrs Chong but Mrs Chong won’t accept the apologies and began to block the walk way of the other passengers.
When Miss Siau apologised the second time, this time round Mrs Chong punched Miss Siau in the face.
Mrs Chong could have been jailed for two years and fined $5,000 for voluntarily causing hurt.
