A 24-year-old student at a higher learning institution in Petaling Jaya survived a freak accident after he swerved his car into a huge drain
The accident happened on Thursday, 10 December, near the Subang airport roundabout.
PJ district police chief ACP Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the police received a report at 6.30pm before dispatching a team to the area to investigate, which revealed that the victim's car had swerved into the drain at the Subang airport roundabout in the direction of the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport Terminal.
Following the crash, the victim reportedly lost consciousness
The impact of the crash left him feeling like he had been passed out for days, according to a Facebook user, Azizi Azizan, who later shared photos of the victim and his badly damaged car.
"At first, I thought he was an insane person coming with mud all over his body," Azizan wrote on his post at about 7.50pm last night, which has since gone viral with over 3,000 shares.
The 24-year-old student managed to crawl out from his crushed car to seek help after the accident went unnoticed by passers-by
Covered in mud, he was forced to walk at least 300 metres before he spotted personnel at the Malaysia Airport Bhd (MAB) auxiliary police post, according to ACP Nik Ezanee.
"The victim succeeded in getting out of the vehicle through the window at the driver's seat and walked for about 300 metres from the spot to get help at the MAB auxiliary police post," he said today, 11 December.
The auxiliary police there administered first aid treatment to the victim's injured hand before reporting the incident and contacting the UiTM Sungai Buloh Hospital for treatment.
He has sustained a sprain in the left hand and was reported to be in a stable condition.
