Stuck in Drain at Wangsa Maju

It was more embarrassing than painful. This teenager missed her footing and her right leg went through the steel grating of a drain in Section Two, Wangsa Maju, Kuala Lumpur, last night.
The 18-year-old student was kept company by several passers-by, who for more than 30 minutes tried in vain to free her. In the end, firemen used a hydraulic pump to force the steel bars apart. She escaped serious injuries.

Ouch, that looks painful, with the leg stuck between the grilles! Good thing there were people trying to help her out :) She must've been quite traumatised after the scene though, having to remain there for so long in such an awkward position.

This is another example of Shoddy Work done by contractors. Surely the specs for such drain covers would call for closer bars. Has the contractor save time, save labor and save materials reduced the number of bars to make more profits?

True ... i hope this provokes the necessary authorities to get all the neccesary man holes, drains and missing grates/grills covered up or done up properly.

Lots of missing covers all over the place. Have seen 2 cars inside these holes when they parked cos the drivers didnt see the missing man hole covers!! sigh!
