Founder Robert Tan not in deadly helicopter crash, IGB confirms
KUALA LUMPUR, April 5 — IGB Corp founder Datuk Seri Robert Tan was not among the six people killed in a deadly helicopter crash in Semenyih yesterday, the firm confirmed today.

“We can confirm that Datuk Seri Robert Tan of IGB Corp Bhd was NOT a passenger on the flight,” a company spokesman said in a statement.

While the cause of the crash is still unknown, it has sparked an outcry against Singaporean drivers, who are accused of speeding recklessly on Malaysian roads.
The new electronic system aims to rein in drivers from the Republic who flout rules with no fear of punishment, Road Safety Department chief Tam Weng Wah told The Straits Times on Tuesday.
According to the Auditor-General’s Report 2013, Singapore-registered vehicles topped the list of foreign vehicles that were issued summonses between 2011 and last year, with about 84,000 of the 120,000 summonses issued going to Singapore vehicles.
Of the 84,000 summonses issued, however, Singaporeans paid just 12,000 – or less than 15 per cent – leaving RM7.63 million (S$3 million) still due.
Those heading north advised to exit at Ipoh & use old road before exiting at K. Kangsar due to accident at KM257 of NSE.
In the 9.22am incident, the tanker driver was believed to have lost control of his vehicle before it overturned and spilling the gas cylinders it was carrying.
Two cars – a Perodua Alza and a Proton Exora – which could not stop on time crashed into the cylinders.
However only the Alza caught fire after the gas cylinder it hit exploded.

THE TIME I FELL INTO A DRAIN AT SCHOOL
IN 2007, I WAS 57 AND STILL ‘YOUNG AND SPRIGHTLY’. I was a full time teacher then, at Shen Jai High School, Ipoh.
I still had good eyesight and balance. That year, I was in the Discipline Dept, and that meant having a say in running the Prefects.
They were good workers when it came to collecting litter. Still, there were little pieces they missed, and I enjoyed showing them how to detect litter that had got into the earth from long months of neglect.
One morning, when the prefects had left, I crossed a large deep drain. Suddenly, I slipped and fell inside!
Oh, the excruciating pain on my left thigh! It hurt so much that I could not even say, “Ouch.” I could only groan quietly until the pain subsided.
No one had seen me fall into the drain, so no one was around to help me. I was thankful. I would have been too ashamed to have been seen lying on my side inside the drain!
I would have been the brunt of jokes among my colleagues and the students!
Also, I was grateful that the drain was absolutely dry.
I waited and waited, and when the pain had been sufficiently reduced, I limped back to the office.
You may be sure that I no longer leap drains.
One leap and we’re across the drain! He was only 34 but he fell, hit his head and died…
PUTRAJAYA: A staff with the Natural Resources Ministry died after he fell into a one-metre-wide drain near a Ramadhan bazaar here today.

It was learnt that the 34-year-old civil servant tried to jump over the drain to get to the bazaar but failed.
