Ok, This is my own account on what happened to Wen Dee on 6 May 2003.
I was about 7PM and I just chopped onions and carrots for my soup noodles. Alex came to the kitchen and told Kf, Chee Feng and I that Wen Dee was knocked down by a car. The next thing was, Frederick rushing down from the stairs and he got out from the house with Alex. Initially I didn�t want to go and called Wen Dee to ask her whether if she was alright. However, Allen picked it up. He said that she�s unconscious and the paramedics are treating her now. Apparently, she and her sister were on the way to Aunt Sally�s for dinner. Wen Dee was trying to cross the road with her sister and suddenly a speeding car came. She tried to jump away from the car but the car hit her on her side and eventually fell onto the car and rolled on the road. Wen Kim screamed and screamed for help. Passer byes immediately tried to calm Wen Kim down and some of them tried to keep Wen Dee awake by talking to her.
Chee Feng and I ran to the location. Once we got there, we could see cars slowing down and an ambulance. Wen Dee was lying on the ground and the paramedics were attending her. Her eyes were closed and her body was covered with a white cloth. I could see a small pool of blood underneath her head. We were all shocked. We didn�t say a word. At first instance, the first thing on my mind was, �Oh my god�. I thought she was going to die but after I saw her breathing I knew she�s going to make it. Wen Kim was crying and hugging Alex. I got up to her and told her that she�ll be alright. Frederick was crying too. He wiped his tears with hand. Alex told me that he was so stressed that he lost his way to Aunt Sally�s. He couldn�t control his emotion.
Few minutes later, the paramedics carried Wen Dee onto a stretcher and brought her into the ambulance.
The ambulance went slowly with no sirens or alarms. Frederick, still shaken, followed the ambulance. We thought they were going to sent her to Hallamshire hospital, which is just opposite the road. However, the ambulance brought her to another hospital. It took a while for us to reach the hospital.
I got out from the car once we arrived, and spoke to the paramedics. He said she would be fine. Wen Kim and Allen got out from the ambulance. Wen Kim immediately broke down and cried.
To add injury to wound, it was less than 24 hours since Wen Kim arrived in England. She was badly shaken. While she was in the hospital, one of the nurses asked her, �Who are you? Where do you live?� She answered, �I�m her sister, and I just arrived this morning�.
We got to the reception and waited. We waited more than 5 hours in the reception and no signs of Wen Dee. She was waiting for treatment for a long time and we couldn�t see her. Frederick cried for more than an hour while Wen Kim broke down many times. Soon, loads of people came to see Wen Dee. But we had to wait for hours to see her because she was waiting for treatment.
UK claimed that they have the best medical service and police service in the world. That�s bollocks I tell you. Firstly, after the incident happened, the police said that they are not going to charge the woman driver who knocked down Wen Dee because she did not run away from the accident. Secondly, it took few hours for Wen Dee to get treatment and the nurse said that there isn�t any doctors on duty and they cant call doctors who are off duty. Allen had to talk to the superior officer to lodge the police report. He had to describe everything to the woman sergeant. Initially, she said the case wasn�t serious enough. Allen then said, �So you�re telling me if someone knocks down a person and the person dies, so long he doesn�t run away there�s no offence?� The policewoman did not say anything. Allen then described the accident in detail and finally she apologized because they didn�t know how serious the case was.
As for the National health services, it is equivalent to Malaysian standard. Since we were there for 5 hours, we witnessed loads of things. There was once a woman walked in with her head bleeding from the back of her head. She was not attended immediately instead she wandered around till the blood dried up. The worst was when an Asian man carrying a girl who drank a bottle of poison or something came into the hospital. The girl kept on screaming, � I want to die�. She wasn�t attended immediately either. The nurse on the registration counter refused to do anything until they got her details right. However, after they got her details right, there weren�t any nurses or doctors attending her. Her motionless body lay on the wheelchair for an hour.
We finally got to see Wen Dee after she got her x-ray. She got loads of bruises on her face but yet she could still talk to us.
