Coroner: Menara Umno victim died of misadventure

The Coroner’s Court today ruled that hawker Lim Chin Aik, who was believed to have died after his car was impaled by Menara Umno’s lightning arrestor along Jalan Macalister, had died of a “misadventure”.

When delivering his decision, Coroner Khairul Anuar Abdul Halim said the deceased, identified as Chin Aik, had died between 6.45 and 6.50pm on June 13 from a misadventure as a result from the falling structure.

Khairul Anuar added that Lim’s death certificate will be issued by the relevant body to his family.

“It is an unprecedented case, as there is no body to refer to, and there were no precedence (previous case).

“However, the court is satisfied with the evidence presented that the identity of the driver of the wreckage that was pulled out (from the debris), is Chin Aik,” he added.

“It is in all probability that it is Chin Aik, as evidence showed that he drove the same car and took the same route to pick up his daughter from school on Gottlieb road on other days,” he stressed.

The inquest would enable a death certificate to be issued by the Registration Department, apart from facilitating insurance claims by the victim’s family.

Police turned deaf ear to car buried under beam plea

A witness in the inquest into the death of hawker Lim Chin Aik recounted how he saw a huge lightning arrester from Menara Umno in Penang crash onto a passing grey vehicle.

Khor Hun Hin, a durian seller along Jalan Macalister where the June incident took place, said he saw “with my own eyes” how the concrete beam fell from the top of the building onto the car.

Khor’s durian stall is about 10m from the accident scene.

“Fifteen minutes after the incident, I told a policeman who was at the site that a car was buried beneath the crater when the incident occurred,” said Khor.

“However, the police ignored me.”
