Today, Dr Tan Seng Giaw, DAP members and residents looked at the lack of firefighting equipment and emergency lift not functioning in highrise flats, Taman Mutiara Fadason, Jinjang North. Two days ago, a 7 5 - year - old man had a massive stroke in his unit half way up the highrise flats. As emergency lift did not work, firemen walked up the stars, wrapped the patient with blanket, carried him down the stairs and raced the ambulance to Selayang Hospital. He died a few hours later.
Similar problems occur in some highrise flats in other parts of Malaysia. Any solution?
Dr Tan will present the problems in parliament.
