Kelantan Bridge is Falling Down, Falling Down ...

Malaysia has 1st. Class Infrastructure?

Hundreds of schoolchildren uses this bridge daily. For umpteen years, residents of Pengkalan Pasir Village, 6km from Kota Baru, Kelantan had been appealing to the authorities for the repair of this bridge. On February 14, 2005, this bridge claimed its second victim. 5-year-old Noralili Mohd Yusof fell into the canal through a gap between the rotten planks. Last year alone, one villager was killed and two others broke their arms and legs.

Perhaps, now the authorities may act.

Didn't we say we have first world infrastructure and third world mentality?
Perhaps, we have both in the third world of darkness.
