Woman dragged along road after feet gets stuck under bus in M’sia, police report filed

Woman sustains injuries after getting dragged down road by bus in Malaysia

On Tuesday (4 June), a woman in Malaysia took to X to recount her experience of a horrific incident that occurred with a bus.

While she was taking her luggage out from a compartment located at the bottom of the bus, the vehicle resumed its journey without warning.

As a result, it trapped her calf, dragging her a few metres down the tarmac and causing her to sustain significant injuries.

Upon her arrival, she went to retrieve her baggage from the luggage compartment of the bus.

However, the door closed abruptly, leaving her legs trapped.

“Suddenly the door closed and I was still inside but my feet were outside,” Nurul said, adding that the bus continued on its journey, dragging her feet along the tarmac of the road.

I screamed for help but there was no one… just imagine.

She went on to explain that her calf had been trapped by the door while her toes were dragging against the street.

Driver allegedly shouted at her

According to Gutzy Asia, Nurul shared that she was uncertain about how long the vehicle had dragged her down the road, but she gauged that it spanned about five minutes.

While trapped, she was able to call her parents for help.

Eventually, the driver realised something was amiss by spotting her feet hanging out of the luggage compartment on the bus’s side mirror.

Stopping the vehicle, he let Nurul out and allegedly shouted at her, asking why she hadn’t requested he retrieve the luggage for her.

The driver then conveyed her to a clinic for medical attention.

In a third tweet detailing her ordeal, Nurul asked her followers if she could claim insurance for the injuries she had sustained.
