please say a prayer  
for alex lim.

an old acquaintance is in ICU at TTSH, in critical condition.

apparently, a cab knocked into his car on monday night. alex got out to talk to the cabbie, who refused to talk to him and wanted to drive off. the silly boy went to stand in front of the cab to stop the bastard. guess what the cabbie did?

he floored the accelerator.

i can't imagine what sort of human would do that. the cab dragged alex for 10 metres before the cabbie jammed his brakes. alex flew off and hit his head very hard.

his brain has swollen. what i heard in the arvo was that surgeons were intending to remove part of his brain due to the damage. what i also heard was that he is in such a bad condition that they are considering pulling the plug.

if you're religious, please say a prayer for this good-natured young man. if you're not, please just have him in your thoughts. thank you.

mother tells me a cabbie ran over a biker recently on purpose, because biker was weaving in and out of traffic and he wasn't happy about that. biker died. :[

what is wrong with these people?
.that girl.: i need cuddlesgirlwhowaits on April 11th, 2007 01:56 pm (UTC)
i have no idea, they must be seriously fucked up to begin with.

having seen how some of them drive the past few days - I'm surprised the taxi governing body hasn't done anything about it.

that's why I am for the profiling system - wannabe cabbies are to be assessed and vetted to weed out all these fws who give the decent drivers a bad name.

*hugs*

i hope something is done about cases like these - teach these people anger management or something! teach them karma! teach them how to be a human being. :(

Wow. wtf. I'm so sorry to hear about this. I'm not religious, but I really hope that things turn out alright.
JV: downdrag0nette on April 11th, 2007 01:51 pm (UTC)

JV: downdrag0nette on April 11th, 2007 03:39 pm (UTC)
this is such a real-life horror story. :[ i hope he's strong enough to etch a happy ending.
Wenzwwenzz on April 11th, 2007 03:50 pm (UTC)
he's a fighter and i believe he'll pull thru' with his strong will. did you get updates about him today? i went yesterday, but today was bit busy but heard from my fren that he seems much better but still some blood clot at the frontal region accordingly to what the doctor said.
JV: downdrag0nette on April 11th, 2007 03:53 pm (UTC)
a friend went during lunch time today and he said it wasn't good. i hope your friend is right though! we're going to try to go tomorrow... waiting for an update.
Wenzwwenzz on April 11th, 2007 04:00 pm (UTC)
okay update you on doctor's words at 3.43pm. it's about his scan results.

"Still have bloodclots at the frontal region. Existing problems are still there. Stable for now but still in critical condition."
JV: downdrag0nette on April 11th, 2007 04:04 pm (UTC)
that's better... friend was there when the scan was still going on i think. thanks babe. :)

very sad to know such people liek the taxi driver still exist here...knowing that you will not get away freely for doign such things.....


JV: downdrag0nette on April 12th, 2007 10:03 am (UTC)
there is so much evil in the world it's unbelieveable. they're appealing for the passenger in the cab to come forward to be a witness. i hope she appears. :[
sticker mansilver_crv on April 12th, 2007 02:21 pm (UTC)
I am sure she will. Just hope the mappeal message reached her...but I am sure the police can trace her
JV: downdrag0nette on April 12th, 2007 06:53 pm (UTC)
i've heard of cabbies who actually try to prevent people from reaching their passengers as witnesses if they're in an accident. :[
sticker mansilver_crv on April 13th, 2007 12:36 am (UTC)
it will not be so easy for them to do such unhumane thing...rest assure...the lady will show up..

she will...
JV: downdrag0nette on April 15th, 2007 05:20 pm (UTC)
i hope so!

Hi there. i don't know alex personally but this accident hits home tht life is so fragile and we really dont know what will happen the next minute. cliche but true.

i sincerely pray tht your friend will pull through.

Denise.
JV: downdrag0nette on April 12th, 2007 07:43 pm (UTC)
thank you, denise. :) every prayer counts!

why pray?
you're preventing him from going to heaven.
Isn't Heaven what all you of wish to go eventually?

JVdrag0nette on May 15th, 2007 06:42 am (UTC)
Re: why pray?
he has already passed away. your comment is a little late. this was when we were praying for his recovery.
