Please give up seat on public transport
Hi all, there’s something I would like to share..
Just minutes ago, I was inside the standing carriage of the mrt and while the train just left a station, suddenly in the adjacent area with seats, an old man about 80-90 years old fell quite heavily on his back, knocking his head against the floor with quite an impact! We heard a loud thub sound.
Then he went motionless for about 5 seconds and everyone was very stunned.. probably thought he fainted… omg. Luckily, after a few seconds he showed some movements.. and the pasengers sitting near the man quickly helped to get him up and bring him to the nearest reserved seat. Everyone was quite worried about him of course!
This is the first time I encountered such incident, and what I am really trying to say is for all to please quickly give up seats to any elderly passengers you see whether on bus or on the mrt, if you can.
And for all elderly passengers please, if possible and convenient, take up the seat offer to ensure your safety.. Don’t feel paiseh. Also, make sure you sit down quickly once you get into the train. We want you to be safe & sound.
I hope the man feels ok since we all know it’s not good for elderly to experience falls like this at their age..
Admin kindly please post this and I hope all kind souls out there can take note & ensure our elderly are safe and well.
Thank you, everyone.
