Recommended Posts

GEORGE TOWN: Air stewardess Ng Sweet Yuin’s plan to spend quality time with her grandmother was cut short by a road accident.


The Malaysia Airlines stewardess, 27, died on the spot after her Perodua MyVi was involved in a head-on collision with a Proton Satria driven by a 22-year-old youth on the Jelutong Expressway at 3.15am yesterday.


The youth, an undergraduate who was back from Australia on his semester break, broke both legs and sustained multiple injuries.

Ng’s mother Thniah Poh Choo, 52, said her daughter came back from Kuala Lumpur after learning about her grandmother’s operation which was scheduled at a private hospital yesterday.


“She came back on Tuesday. She bought her grandmother a packet of char koay teow on Wednesday night before meeting up with her friends.


“She even applied for leave today (yesterday), hoping to see her grandmother after the operation.


“I do not know how to tell the old lady about Ng’s death,” she said, when met at the Penang Hospital mortuary.


Thniah said her daughter, who had been working as a stewardess for the past two years, had planned to buy a house in Sungai Ara.


Penang police traffic enforcement/operations chief Asst Supt Ahmad Ezzely Razali said a blood sample had been taken from the male driver to determine if he had been intoxicated or high on drugs at that time
