An Unfortunate Accident

I just witnessed a horrific car accident earlier today. I am still in distraught.





Potentially disturbing images ahead

*~*~*~* Public Service Announcement *~*~*~*
Please note that kennysia.com has received permission from the involved's direct family to publish the photos of the car accident on this website.

kennysia.com wishes to advise anyone reading this entry that not everyone may wish to have these photos published as such. If you encounter a potentially fatal car accident in the future, please always ensure that the victims are safe first and foremost.
*~*~*~* Public Service Announcement *~*~*~*



It was along the Batu Kawa-Matang Road. The driver of a Honda had tried to overtake the vehicle in front of her. She didn't succeed, and was met with a head-on collision with a cargo truck instead.

When I was driving past the scene, all I noticed was a bystander shouting for help. He couldn't get a phone signal in the new area so I offered to help by calling the emergency number.

I had received First Aid training before, but when I was put into a situation like this, I honestly do not know how to react.

For a long time I stood there in shock and distress, not knowing what to do except run around asking for help.

More volunteers had arrived. A man was calm enough to open the car door to check on the conditions of the passengers.

I looked inside and took a glimpse of the driver. She was a young lady around my age, still in her seat belt, body slouching to the side, eyes half opened. Lifeless.

The spoiler of the lorry had gone right through the windscreen and smashed into the headrest of her seat. She couldn't have survived.

Then I saw that there were children inside the car. Young kids, no bigger than my own nephew and nieces. Their bodies, covered in blood, sprawling over the car seats of the car.

My heart sank.

We noticed a young girl still breathing. Immediately, one of the volunteers carried her out of the car and rushed her to the hospital.

I don't know what happened to her eventually. The newspaper report said that she survived but suffered serious head injuries.

If anyone reading this website knows the family of the unfortunate souls who perished in this incident, please drop me an e-mail.

I may not know you, but I apologise because I was there at the time of the incident and I do not know what else there is to do. If you know the condition of the little girl in hospital, please tell me. And if there is anything at all that I can do to help, financial or otherwise, please let me know.

I am sorry.

I am really sorry to read this article. May God bless the souls of those who couldnt survive and bless the lil gal too. :(

One example that its better slow than never..

Unregistered

its sad. i hope no one would ever have to go thru that experience.

Unregistered

so sorry to see this. All so young... God bless.

Unregistered

Was it a Honda Civic? Did the airbags not go off? What about the child seat(s)?

Unregistered

my condolences...

Unregistered

erm, just a question.. what were you doing snapping photos of the scene?! I know you tried to help and kudos to that but to be taking pictures at that moment is a bit tasteless I feel..

Unregistered

poor girl...i would have dumbstruck myself if i were there...
i guess we should all srcutinize our driving,whteher we are reckless or careful.other's life are at stake too!
drive safely...and buckle up...you can make a difference

Unregistered

condolences to the family memebers of the accident victim.. sighh... mum's pleassee drive safely when u have kids around la!!

Unregistered

:(

May God bless the souls of the deceased.

Unregistered

the photos could be used as police evidence. kenny is being sensitive enough not to take photos of the victims. he has done what he could do.

god bless.

Unregistered

nt calm enuf to do anything bt could snap photos?

Unregistered

my condolences...
honestly, i dun think u should snap the photos.

Unregistered

why the fck would the airbags go off? its not gona do anythn.
hope the girls gona be allrite. may the other RIP.

ps-you should never overtake a truck. the drivers get really pissed cos they take ages to regain their speed.

Unregistered

That's really sad. It can happen to anybody and I wouldn't know what to do if I were in your position too.

Unregistered

saddening.

Unregistered

@hij: are you sure about that? i dont think thats true, because trucks have high torque ratings.

@fruitopia: look at the car, its a 5th gen Civic. That model only has a driver airbag.

Did anyone understand the newspaper article? It starts off saying a woman and her 3kids died. Later it informs us that a woman driver, her mother, the driver's 2kids and her niece were in the car.

Unregistered

=(
condolences to the family.

Unregistered

I wouldn't know what to do either
but I think I wont be taking photos around lor

Unregistered

i guess this shouldn't be made a blog entry...should it??? dunno..

Unregistered

I guess that being an almost pro-blogger like Kenny is like a pro journalist. No matter what, his instinct was to take the photos, coz that is what he do. It's like during an accident & a photographer keeps snapping pictures, tho it's irritating, it's their job. Blogging I believe is essentially part of Kenny's part time job (ofc, he's not paid but then... he got advertorial now doesn't he?)?

In whichever case, let this be a lesson to us all lar! Dun be overconfident behind the wheels, especially when ur not alone.

Unregistered

Wah Kenny, ur not so nice ler? Anonymous just put anonymous lar!! why put I'm a Chicken with No Name... /sigh... what a put down.

/scowl

Unregistered

Another lesson to all those drivers out there. Its nothing worth to get into an accident.

If you are wondering if what you can do to help the casualties, learn First Aid and CPR. You might save a life someday.

Unregistered

hey, Kenny! You did the right thing of calling the emergency number! Well done! Hope the driver and the kids are alright =)

Unregistered

believe me i know exactly how it feels. I dont think the driver could have survived the crash. Condolences...

p.s stop commenting about kennysia taking picture there. He is considered enough by not taking picture of the victims(there is no car plate number as well). He know what he is doing and he knows the consequences of this entry as well.

And next time please take note that dont move the victim on ur own unless u know what u are doing. u might kill the victim if u move them recklessly. Trust me, i know coz i am a doctor

Unregistered

well a message to all of you..please dont save a minute or two by endangering not only your life..but everyone elses too..my condolences..i m still surprised how you can snap so damn clear fotos also..

Unregistered

it is extremely insensitive of kenny sia to act like a papparazo and take photographs. Its almost as rude as going to a funeral and take pictures of the casket. you should be able to draw a line between journalism and being sensitive. its already bad that you didnt offer any help but standing there and taking photographs clearly show you lack moral fibre.

Unregistered

I don think its insensitive, he's just sharing his experience and he has offered so much help at the end too.. Did he take it so that he cud sell the pictures or make front page in a newspaper? Its hardly paparazzi or journalism! He just wanted to share wad happened. He also clearly wanted to help and now he has even offered financial help too.. gosh.. I feel bad for the family though and i wish that they rest in peace..

Unregistered

am so sad to see this.. condolences to the family members.

and i totally agree with radical85.

thanks kenny for sharing this news. you've offered what you can.

let's pray that the girl is ok *cross fingers*

Unregistered

oh no.. what a tragedy :(

Unregistered

Shouldnt have taken the photos.

He might be a blogger, first instinct was to take pictures when anything happens, and I can understand that.

I can understand that, but that doesnt makes him right.

He snaps picture, in abundance of them. I dont think those were anything meant for the so-called "police evidence". C'mon, the police have their men on that task.

And besides, those photographs were taken after the accident happened. If those photographs were showing the epics before the accident happened, or say captured the number plate of the car they were trying to overtake, that might helps.

In another words, shouldnt we say Kenny took those pictures and put them up mostly, if not solely for the benefit for himself to generate positive viewership? To enhance his presence in the blogosphere? To create a buzz around his name? So that to translate those intangible fames he already has on web, to real life so that so make them more keenly felt? Say... on national television maybe?

Viewership does go stagnant if you do not have something to stir it up once in a while, no?

Unregistered

I've always been told in an accident, do not go and carry the victims if you do not the right way. This is because the victims might suffer from a broken neck or bones and by carrying them might further cause them injury. My question is, how do we stop ignorant but good samaritan to try to move them to the hospital without waiting for ambulance? Some might argue, waiting for ambulance would take too much time or are you going to stand around and watch them die? So, where is cut-off line? To help or not to help, that is the question.

Unregistered

May God bless the person who survived that crash to have the strength to survive in life...

Calling the emergency number was the only thing Kenny could have done so he shouldn´t blame himself.

As for snapping photos... one or two for the purpose of "journalism blogging" (or whatever you guys coined it as) would have been sufficient to act as a reminder for the public on the importance of driving safely... So he might be taking a few more to get the "best shots" but posting so much photos... Yes, he´s being sensitive while taking these photos... but what was he thinking while snapping so much photos? the rationality still eludes me.

Unregistered

Perhaps you need bigger roads? double lane for safe overtaking?

Unregistered

This is truly sad. You couldn't have done more Kenny. Bless the family of the victims. May they be strong.

Unregistered

Please bear in mind that if not for KENNY sharing this piece of information with us, most of us wouldnt have known bout it. perhaps kenny is just trying to spread the word of caution or that drivers should be much more sensible and careful whilst driving.

not everything is about money, especially when it comes to issues bout life and death. so stop being so insensitive to the poor dude la.

Unregistered

WHY TAKE PHOTOS?!!

Unregistered

My condolences. May those who is gone rest in peace.

By the way Kenny, did any of the bystanders say anything or look funny at you when you were taking photographs on the scene? Do you take your camera every single place you go?

Unregistered

serves them right!!!...they deserved it!!!... this is what you get for driving recklessly. stupid!!!

Unregistered

MY CONDOLENCE!!

Unregistered

Oh my gawsh
wut a sad accident
i would have cried if i were there.

now i'm feeling all sad and sorry.

by the way, correction?

it's so sad that kenny doesn't even have a short talk session in this post..

Unregistered

what makes a bit sad was you have the time to snap pics

Unregistered

oh shit.

sorry people!!!

ignore my previous comments!!!!

some HTML errors

what i really meant was
i don't think it's right to take pictures when accidents happened. really.

Unregistered

well, a picture paints a thousand words and in this case, it portrays the severity of the situation for us to appreciate the consequences, should we all try to pull off stunts, no?...much condolences...

Unregistered

I myself was involved in a self-accident many years ago. Praise God I am still alive. One thing u learn - DONT SPEED! Take ur time.

Unregistered

Its really tragic, My condolences

Unregistered

you don't do anything wrong....beside how can she survived in THIS kind of collision. even if you are a surgeon also no use.

Unregistered

Kenny has done his best. There is nothing else he can do to help.

Plus, this entry really remind us to becareful while driving. Wish the little girl is safe.

My condolences..

Stop criticising kenny!

Unregistered

it's just odd that you could be there not knowing what to do, but taking photos from so many angles certainly crossed your mind

Unregistered

hey, i just read about the accident on the newspaper this morning, and now, i read it on your blog... it's really sad to know these accidents happen... You are not to blame, kenny...don't be too hard on yourself~

Unregistered

"I had received First Aid training before, but when I was put into a situation like this, I honestly do not know how to react."

"For a long time I stood there in shock and distress, not knowing what to do except run around asking for help."

But i know how to go take out my camera and click here and there while seeing others actually DOING something to help the victims... Kenny you are so coward la instead of helping you act as though you really are a journalist! Not to mention you stop by roadside creating traffic jam! Ambulance also stuck in jam!

Unregistered

why don't you ask someone to take pictures for you while you pose? asshole...

Registered

"what makes a bit sad was you have the time to snap pics"

You ask, why do I still have time to take photos?

I'll tell you. In between me calling the ambulance at 3:15pm and the ambulance and police actually arriving at 4:00pm, there is a 45 minute space and about THIRTY bystanders, onlookers and volunteers where NONE of us knew exactly what to do.

None of us want to move the bodies because it is clear they are already dead, and whoever has survived (ie the little girl) had already been rushed to the hospital.

So what else could we do?

Direct traffic? We took turns. I was "traffic police" for ten minutes before another guy took over.

And what else? Pray tell.

You want me to perform post-mortem? Chant prayers? What?

"But i know how to go take out my camera and click here and there while seeing others actually DOING something to help the victims... Kenny you are so coward la instead of helping you act as though you really are a journalist! Not to mention you stop by roadside creating traffic jam! Ambulance also stuck in jam!"

Me creating traffic jam? Mate, if it weren't for me the ambulance wouldn't even have arrived. The place is a new area and none of those who arrived there before me could get a signal on the phone. I was the only lucky one there with a phone signal who could call emergency.

Even when the ambulance and police arrived they also stood around not knowing what to do for 15 minutes before they ordered the fire engine to come in and cut through the wreckage.

Fact is, I did the best I could at that point in time given the shock and trauma I underwent. I took the photos only AFTER I had calmed down. And only AFTER I have ascertained that there was nothing else that could be done. And I took with my phone camera. Not my dSLR or Sony T9. In situations like these, I believe I had done my best.

"In another words, shouldnt we say Kenny took those pictures and put them up mostly, if not solely for the benefit for himself to generate positive viewership? To enhance his presence in the blogosphere? To create a buzz around his name? So that to translate those intangible fames he already has on web, to real life so that so make them more keenly felt? Say... on national television maybe?"

There is a line between citizen journalism and distasteful blogging for personal gains, and I believe I did not cross that line. You can telephone the local Kuching police and check with them who at the scene provided the most help. Go ahead. I had given them my IC number and they know exactly who I am.

On the other hand, I'd like to see what superhero powers you can perform if you were in my shoes.

Unregistered

heyy...u've done ur best Kenny...

indeed the best in helping out in the situation as well as the pix..

Unregistered

"why don't you ask someone to take pictures for you while you pose? asshole..."
Exactly, and why don't you suck in your fat stomach and stick your flabby chest out as well like all your puke-inspiring photos?

And what kind of explanation is that, daring others what other things they can perform? The point is what NOT to perform, ie taking pictures like an inconsiderate fat fuck such as yourself.

Unregistered

i support for kenny V^^V

my condolences for the family...
may they rest in peace...

Unregistered

i feel sorry for the young ones

Unregistered

The airbag, if the car had one in the first place, would likely not have deployed as the main impact of the truck hit the windscreen first and not the nose of the car.

This is an example of why most trucks in Malaysia (and probably around the world) are extremely dangerous - to other vehicles. Their bumpers cannot make contact with the crush zones of passenger cars because they are too high up.

There is an alternate design for truck bumpers which is closer to the ground and angled in such a way that the impact transfer to the other vehicle is done just right - to avoid accident outcomes like this one.

Unregistered

you were running around asking for help or snapping pictures?

Unregistered

What ever it is, the major point here is that lives were taken away just like that.

We should always keep this tragedy in mind when we are about to speed, drunk drive, cut lanes, dozing off, on our hp, no seat belts etc.

Let this be a lesson to all.

Bless the souls of those who died and may God take care of the little one who still lives.

Unregistered

Hi Kenny:
You have done enough,to be honest,most of the peoples do not know how to react when such incident happens,at least you are trying to help.:)

Unregistered

Kenny, i'm disappointed with you. You said you didn't what to do to help them. And you could do was taking photos and posted in your blog? That's bad. I regretted reading this post.

Unregistered

OH NO! I can imagine how you would have felt... I had to cover my mouth from quivering and held tears from my eyes just going through the photos....

You know, those people that kept saying about how you shouldn't be taking the photos and instead should be helping, seriously, what can you do at a time like this? There's really nothing you could do, and i hope by looking at the photos that Kenny has taken, it would remind everyone else to drive carefully and not end up like this... What more, with kids at the backsit... Seriously, it hit me harder than seeing the car under the truck when i see the photo of the lifeless kid's leg from the backsit...

I hope people will learn from these photos, and not make the same mistake as this young lady, and I hope their souls (i read this few times, u put 's' there, meaning there's more than 1, DAMNIT) rest in peace...

Unregistered

God bless the lil girl!
I know how serious head injury is cause my dad just came out from the Neuro ward himself.
It's so sad to witness the condition of ppl there.....

Unregistered

Well, I guess I would be a good driver........ for today, and may be tomorrow too.

Unregistered

Oh my...my heart sank too when i read this especially when the youngest kid is of the same age as mine!

Kenny, i can imagine the trauma that you will have to go through after witnessing this accident. You did what you could and this is a real good lesson for all especially when driving with the little ones. A good wake up call for some reckless drivers out there.

God bless the souls... :-(

From what I have read and seen here, those persons who are critising kenny (esp those who have done so after his explanation) can just fornicate off!

And for kenny - no need to be defensive about this - as long as you respected the victims by not showing their faces etc that is fine with me.

Unregistered

Well, kenny you have done what you suppose to do.. well done..
for those comment on snapping photo around.. jus put yourself in kenny position at that time.. u will feel what he feel-helpless feeling..
and my condolence..

Unregistered

Can you MORONSS!! stop asking Kenny why is he snapping photos instead and not helping around!!

As if you MORONS have inherited Superman powers that you can actually save the situation which Kenny can't! and Is he using YOUR handphone to take the pictures, that YOU felt so sore about? His not taking photos of the deceased so what is the big issue all about??

Unregistered

You did great kenny.

I am so sorry kenny...

Unregistered

wow..OMG..god bless them..

Unregistered

wah you ask people to call police ask who did the most? what are you trying to prove?

you did the right thing to call the ambulance, but after that you should had just leave since you already mentioned you don't know what to do, if don't know and feel helpless LEAVE the place then, you and the 30+ people there are just there creating a unnecessary scene (take pictures, discussing, take number to buy 4D etc...

Nobody here claims to be a superhero, my feeling is you done your part in calling ambulance, probably take a picture or two, but not hanging around there for a hour or more feeling "helpless"... you won't need to direct traffic if the 30+ people including you were to park their vehicles and motocycles by the roadside...

Unregistered

kenny is useless!

Unregistered

clearly those of you who've been criticising Kenny have never been involved or witnessed an accident before.
jerks.

Unregistered

Really dont understand what you guys want. I understand that some might say is rude to take photo on the accident scene. But kenny had done his part in helping to call the emergency number. He had did more that what we are willing to do. Try to put the incident on yourself, what would you do? You could be a bastard who will slow down your god damn car, causing terrible traffic jam just to have a better look on the incident only.
On yeah, go and write to the paper and screw those people who took photo on the accident scene la. I'm sure there are damn alot out there.

Unregistered

To those who commented on Kenny:

"Why take pictures?"

Please lah, if you got a blog and you've got thousand of people reading it, obviously you would wanna let your readers know about something that happened which does not occur in everyone's life. Reading on this post and looking at the pictures, it really made me realize the consequences of driving fast. Reality is that the person driving this car made a big mistake and it costed people lives. And you guys are making it sound like as if Kenny took pictures and made them got into a horrific accident.

Unregistered

i had my witness my fair share of accidents involving people lives as i work as a ambulance driver... in an ideal world i have to agree Sensible thinking is correct... don't stop and look if you don't know what to do, but unfortunately people are like that. Kenny did right in calling ambulance, then he should had left the scene. and not to critize you but for i know for sure every accident we received at least 2 calls as the operator will fear it is just a prank call.

Unregistered

Kenny, I am a medical student and I understand how bad helplessness feels in the face of emergency. However, it's the heart that counts, you couldn't have done much better.

I am not sure, but I would just like to share this article written by a medical student in a similar situation, it may help:
http://changyang1230.blogspot.com/2005/03/touching-article.html

While what Kenny did (taking photos in the accident) might seem controversial, ask yourself: what could you have done better, were you in his shoes? Stand around, becoming part of the crowd who stand there discussing "how the accident could have happened" and so on? Compared to the crowd, Kenny actually did so much more by posting this article and reminding everyone about the importance of safe driving.

Get over your knee-jerk reflexes. Kenny, although you couldn't have helped out much on the spot, you still did what you do best: disseminating public messages through your blog. And I thank you for that.

Registered

dont get upset kenny. life's like that. there are always people who dont agree with what you do at any given time. no point trying to please everyone.

btw, who did he really offend by taking pictures? the victims? what damage did he do by taking pictures after directing traffic and waiting for help to come?

ask yourself whether you would actually stop down and help like him, or you will just drive past and spend no thoughts on it. shame on you

Unregistered

F.O.C.U.S.on the real issue - the consequences of reckless driving! and not whether its JUSTIFIABLE on the part of kenny to snap pics or not. idiots.

Unregistered

My condolence to the family of the departed members.

Unregistered

Hm.. i would feel out of respect for victims of the crash, the photos should not be publish. And perhaps this is a good topic of blog but still, instead of apologising that you are sorry Kenny, i felt that sometimes should be left unphotographed.

Unregistered

i cant imagine what would've i done if i was there.

Unregistered

aiyo kenny relax la you did your best adi ma.... don need to angry if you Kepo go busy body or Geh Gao go direct traffic...maybe you really expert in directing traffic since so many people log in to see your blog liaw... so you successfully pass your message to don't drive recklessly liaw adi lo... Peace!

Unregistered

I SERIOUSLY DONT SEE A POINT OF MAKING THE FACT OF PHOTO SHOOTING AS RIGHT OR WRONG.
I'd have agreed with you if he's taking photos of the bodies..but taking the accident scene does not mean he did not pay respect to the victims.
I dont understand why there are people try to say it's right or wrong. It's not a matter of right or wrong for certain things, eg. you choose to eat noodles of rice for your dinner.
And what else he could do better or help much, if he's not taking any photos at that time?
U'd never know so helpless when you are at the place of tragedy while you have nothing to offer but watch it!

Unregistered

MY deepest condolence to the unfortunate victims & their family.

& to 'Sulee' & 'abcde' & to those still slamming Kenny for taking pics, cant u guys read his xplaination? Pls-lah, get the facts rite b4 cincai say things and pls read the comments b4 u write 1 yrself. Watever it is, there is no need for Kenny to even explain. Common guys, this is a sad accident so QUIT asking the stupid question of "Y take pics?"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Unregistered

In another words, shouldnt we say Kenny took those pictures and put them up mostly, if not solely for the benefit for himself to generate positive viewership? To enhance his presence in the blogosphere? To create a buzz around his name? So that to translate those intangible fames he already has on web, to real life so that so make them more keenly felt? Say... on national television maybe?

Viewership does go stagnant if you do not have something to stir it up once in a while, no?


I like what he says. SO much truth in it.

Unregistered

First time commenting, but for the sake of the family of the dead please take down the photos.

I don't quite care about your intentions but don't you think their family has had suffered enough without you putting up photos of their wife, daughter, son on the internet?

Unregistered

My condolence and deepest sympathy.
Kenny, dont be upsad so much about the comments of why taking photos. Generally it's true u shouldt have taken those photos. It gives ppl lots of negative impression about u, remember ho u r a celebriti blogger, and one thing try not to reply to ur readers comments, show ur profesionality as blogger not easily shaken. sori about tat ho?

Unregistered

There's nothing wrong with taking the photos, so shut up! Stop writing bollocks with your comments and move on. Kenny is posting all this so that we all can learn from it. So to those narrow minded moaners who spent 24/7 complaining about this and that, reconcile yourself or get some counselling before it gets to your head and becomes serious.

This article is focusing on the horrifying accident and we all should feel sorry for the victim and slagging off Kenny Sia is not welcome.

May God bless the lost souls and my immediate thought is with their family.

Unregistered

What is wrong with you "social conscience" ??? FOCUS on the real issue.

Unregistered

Guess you were not so distraught as to have had the time to consider the implications of those photos you took AND to put them on your blog. If you're genuinely sorry for the victims and their family then I think you should remove the pictures at least. I would find it highly offensive, not to mention heartbreaking to find my loved ones paraded on a blog for everyone to see.

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, hope you're alright by now... and will not have a nightmare because of this.

I know sh*t happens... no words can comfort. Just a prayer.

Be safe.

Unregistered

yala feel sorry for the decreased la... and while you are at it feel sorry for the 1000000000 people who die in accident everyday around the world then!

Unregistered

TO SOCIAL CONSCIENCE,

Kenny did not take photos of the dead people!! and if the newspaper journalist can take photos of the wreckage, why not Kenny? or for all you know, if there are other bloggers who happened to be there, would probably also snap photos and share their thoughts about the accident in their respective blog!

In a way, Kenny is just showing his readers what he saw in that accident and to me it's a lesson for all to learn.

Unregistered

That's sad, I hope everything turns out ok. Especially for the sake of the kids.

As for the pics, it's fine, any journalist would do the same. You didn't show anything or shock value or anything distasteful.

Unregistered

This is the result of all those reckless driving. Hate such drivers.

Remembered when I went to Muar and drove alone the small road there, ppl there drove like hell drivers even the big trucks.

kept me awake throughout the whole journey.

Wonder why these ppl cant treassure both their own and others lives. Haiz

Unregistered

I believe Kenny took pictures to show some awareness in all of us that speed kills.

No point accusing Kenny of taking pictures when he should have done something (which god bless he did anyway), 4 lives have been lost what else can Kenny do, be god and give them life. Think before you comment guys. This message is for those who have been looking for the opportunity to shoot Kenny down.

Unregistered

Some people may say that's it's the driver's mistake and that slow is better. But things arent always what they seem.
Accidents like this are sometimes results of a driver infront driving RIDICULOUSLY slow and still being oblivious about it. They pay no attention to their hind-view mirror. And even if they did...they could have scoot a little bit for some room to be overtaken instead of the car behind having to go all over the other lane to overtake.
I know this might have nothing to do with this accident. But it pisses me off how these oblivious drivers are able to cause such horrible accidents and can still have no clue that they have caused them.

kenny not pro la... who so free call police to check you hero anot? why? you want PM to give you a award for being a good citizen? if you feel you did the right thing then no need to defend yourself in the way you posted that message... so defensive and acted as you were the best in the lot.

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, credit where it's due, you helped out BUT you said "I took the photos only AFTER I had calmed down. And only AFTER I have ascertained that there was nothing else that could be done"


Dude, there is one picture of that man carrying the injured girl to the hospital.. Surely that wasn't after nothing else could be done rather than DURING something was being done..

For those of you who are unhappy about the photographs, why don't you write in to the local media or trashy tabloids, and tell them to stop publishing photos of accidents and other similar 'tragedies', because it is "immoral"?

Cliched, but "a picture speaks a thousand words". And given how intellectually-challenged some of Kenny's readers are, it is no wonder he chose to use photographs, because even if he is able to come up with words to aptly describe the situation and the message behind his entry, many would not understand.

I bet all of you discuss such pictures when you see them in the papers. Did you, for a moment, express disgust at the reporters or photo-journalists? If you did, why aren't you giving the reporters the same nonsense you are giving Kenny now?

Why is Kenny getting flak just because he is "not a journalist" - therefore he has no "right" to take photographs of the accident?

Kenny is *somewhat* a public figure and has public influence - we all know that. Instead of flakking him with senseless oh-so-holy-schmoly talk about how "disrespectful" he is, why don't you see the main point BEHIND the entry, which is very likely to be a simple "PLEASE DRIVE CAREFULLY".

I bet half of you detractors who posted the holy-schmoly comments about "oh this is so wrong you should not take photos it's so disrespectful" and stuff, are the very ones who kick small animals or watch pirated DVDs or spew vulgarities or listen to ripped MP3s. Yes, these might be VERY small issues (not the kicking of small animals), but nonetheless it all boils down the same thing - moral values.

Plz..Pray..not to critic bout the post and what kenny have done. he did what he done best..

go read chinese newspaper (if you know how to read chinese) which have more photos with blood and flesh than actually can hardly see from kenny's post. do you guys trying to say that the newspaper reporter trying to act unethiccally by snapping those photos for the public??? Sigh...stop arguement. it's breathless to argue anymore....

Pray for the souls, the 8month kid i saw very clearly in the pic frm newspaper really make my heart sank early this morning, so weak to see the nurses n doctors trying to check out whether there's still any sign of heart bit using the machine on her but sadly to know that she's died.

God Bless the souls and take care of the only survivor, she's still so young and have so much to learn =peace=

Actually, another lesson to be learnt here which most of you probably don't know is that: YOU SHOULD PUT SEAT BELT ON YOUR CHILDREN OR CHILD SAFETY SEAT AT THE BACK OF THE CAR FOR YOUR YOUNG KIDS. The kids could have survived the accident with minor injury if they have seat belt strapped on them. (of course, I am assuming that they were all at the back of the car during that time.) Can someone verify this?

For those who gave negative comment about Kenny Sia taking the photos, GO AND GET A SEX CHANGE.

END OF STORY

Unregistered

I love taking photos. When things like this happens, I'd be doing the same thing as what Kenny did. But one thing will be different. I'll take the photos AFTER everyone is cleared up and a confirmation on nothing else can be done. And I'll only take the photos of the accident scene on where and how it happened. I guess Kenny was so distraught at that moment. All he can do was to take photos. Anyway, my condolences to the effected families.

Unregistered

According to the report in the International Times (Kuching), the car lost control, not trying to overtake another car...... Kenny is right to stay at the scene and give his account of the accident to the police. Apparently, there is a conflicting report on the cause of the accident.

Unregistered

Hi kenny, how do u actually stood and u run ah? in your sentence 'For a long time I stood there in shock and distress, not knowing what to do except run around asking for help.'

Unregistered

Shame on you!I don't like the looks of this blog.
First of all, you said that you felt distraught. On the other hand, you were calmly taking photos from afar, left, right, centre and back of the accident.
What were you thinking of at that moment?
"A-HA,i have another story to blog about?"

Let me ask you..If the people involved in that car accident were your family members, will you still walk around taking clear photos of them lying there half dead?

Show some respect for other people's tragedy, please!

Good for you that you are earning money from your blog, but please not on other peoples death tragedy.

This blog emits fake compassion. I have no respect for it,(same as you not having respect on other people's tragedy) other than the fact that it publicise news that people like to read and gossip on.

Unregistered

Just for the record, I did not condemn the act of taking the photographs. I was just asking two simple questions relating to the photographs. There wasn't anything negative or against Kenny taking the photographs at all.

Kenny: For photographs taken using a camera phone, they sure are of high quality. What camera phone were you using?

Unregistered

eventhough i work with the accident claims company and i have seen plenty of accidents in my work.. i still panic when i'm at the scene of accident. Even minor ones.

Dun blame Kenny for taking the photographs. He just want to share what he saw.

Unregistered

First, my condolences to all the families involved; the victims in the car, the lorry driver and his kin, and, from my reading of the accident description, the car the Honda driver was trying to overtake. In truth, we can argue that the deceased deserve our greatest sympathy. But we must also consider the impact on the lorry driver's life, as well as others involved peripherally in the accident. Including all the witnesses.

Second, on the subject of photography. While I hesitate to bring up the notion of the theory of photography, and how both photographers and viewers are affected by the events photographed, I would recommend that those who can might read Susan Sontag's 'On Photography' and then comment further.

Some of you, if you are fair to Kenny and honest with yourself, will recognize a bit of your own experience in his lensmanship.

You whip out your camera, at a family gathering, and your literal view of the world changes - now the only things that matter are those viewed 'through' the view-finder - everything else is peripheral, and the 'shot' counts for everything.

Kenny, who might remember the bald ang moh from kayaking with Unker, did almost exactly what I would expect under the circumstances. And, I think I would do much the same. I have been at an accident, very similar to this, and know the sense of helplessness and powerlessness in the face of tragedy and death. I would argue, in Kenny's defense, that the ability to take the photos actually allows Kenny mental room to deal with the physical, emotional, and social devastation caused by a moment's hurry...

My condolences, again, to all those affected. I pray that everyone who wasn't there will honestly assess their beliefs about what they 'would' do, 'could' do, 'might' do, 'should' do.

May God have mercy on them all.

Unregistered

My first thought when I saw the photos was what the fark was Kenny doing taking photos left, right and center.

Instinct or not.Good story or not and everyone can argue 'till the cows come home.

It's just plain wrong.

Drive safe all.

Those who keep on with their criticizings u just dont get a point what is blogging all about? Sharing thoughts events places food anything interesting with all the readers. Simple! taking photos has nothing wrong since Kenny did his best calling emergency number, plus it is wise enough for him to share this with all of us , looking into the pictures i realised how serious it could be to drive recklessly. Its a lesson, a precious one. Thanks Kenny!

give some respect to the family, remove this photos and posting. maybe we should do the same if your family is involved in the same kind of accident.

oh look, an accident!

*standing and looking dumbfounded*

maybe i should call for help.... oh no mobile reception, damn... ok la... can't do anything...

It does make us think, doesn't it?

Think about, what the lady had gone through over her life, studying, accumulating wealth, building a family, and it was all taken away from her, and 2 of her children, because of one mistake. Think about, her loved ones, the husband, the relatives, and her friends. How would they feel?

It makes me think - since life is so fragile, we should really live life happy. I know, that's the cliche of all cliches, but it's true, isn't it? Stressing over not being able to finish certain tasks in time, worrying about money... what if you die tonight? Would all those things still matter? "Live everyday like your last" - how true now, huh?

May they rest in peace.

kenny sia, what you did was wrong and there is no excuse for it.
once a blogger crosses the line, he loses safe harbour and if you dont know what that means go ask a civil lawyer.
sorry kenny but posting this was low. dont say posting pictures was for stimulating open debate later cos if the media gets wind of this, we all might have to register to blog. and that ain't funny at all

pls stop whinging about kenny taking those photos. who are we to judge? so long as we take part in his blog by viewing his pix, we have no right to judge the blogger and his social conscience.

Unregistered

do the right thing at least this time

Unregistered

To those who criticized me for putting up this entry thinking that I'm some sorta cold-hearted animal who goes around snapping photos of accident scene. Let me set the record straight.

What You Thought Happened:

Kenny passed by the accident scene. "Wah! Got accident. Better come down take picture!" *snap* *snap* *snap* Left the scene because happy got things to blog about.



What Actually Happened:
3:15pm. A bystander stopped my car asking for help. I called 991. Yes, we were frantic and in shock, but we tried to do what we can. We managed to stop more cars passing by and ask help. Soon, about 5 people came to our assistance.

3:20pm. We checked on the victims. There was a lot of blood but no movement. I was still in shock and distraught and I did not dare to approach the cars too close because I was scared, but the braver ones did. One Malay guy checked on each one inside the car and ascertained one child was still breathing and she was rushed to the hospital with the assistance of a Chinese guy.


3:40pm. A crowd of about 20 bystanders started to form. A traffic jam was also starting to occur so we took turns directing traffic. After my turn, a guy took over from me and I returned to investigate the wreckage. I was still distraught but by instinct I took some photos with my Samsung X820 phone. I didn't take the photos for fun. I took it because it is not everyday that I witnessed a horrific accident like this. In fact, it was my first and I wanted to document it.

3:45pm A Malay guy (shown in photo 20070518-3.jpg) picked up one of the young child from the front seat. He chanted Muslim prayers after realising that the girl he was holding on was no longer breathing and placed her to rest on the back seat.

3:50pm There was really not much any of us could have done except guarding the wreckage to ensure no looting of the victims goes on (yes, this kinda sick things do happen) So I basically talked to the guys around me about what a sad thing this incident is.

4:00pm The ambulance and police arrived. I gave my account of the story.

4:15pm I left and returned to work.



You guys sure have a lot to say about me posting up this entry. But how many of you truly cared about the young girl still battling for her life in the hospital.

The LEAST you could do is call Sarawak General Hospital (+6082 257555), find out about her condition, and if need be, pledge a donation to her family.

If you have already done so, you have my praise. If you haven't, shame on you.

You are the kind of idiot blogger that alot of people would hate and alot of people would like. For me, you're too cute and wholesome and no such person exists in this world. You come off too fake.

What's wrong about this is that you're posting pictures of dead people on the road, in an accident and claiming you're sorry.

Good job. My hero. There's nothing sorry about shocking things up once in a while to keep those viewership high is that?

Please stop this fakeness. Be an asshole if you want to but I'm sure you're more happy taking those pictures thinking about your latest post than you were feeling sorry for the dead victims.

Unregistered

p.s. kenny.sia.the.idiot@gmail.com is a valid address, so please... PLEASE... leave me your comments... i would like to know what goes on in those heads of yours.

Lol like what you are doing, if you dont know what his true intentions on posting the pictures were, then best you dont judge otherwise just like what you said, someone will repay the favour and bite u in the ass in the future. Have a nice day.

WHAT was our MAIN concern again?...oh right?!!! its the ACCIDENT and its cause?...but look what ALL RIGHTEOUS malaysians are on about? oh yeaaah that kenny should remove his posts and pictures because they generate too much publicity and rumours ... whatever happened to the people who wanna share their thoughts out of goodwill?...oh right! they CANT cos the local newspaper will do it anyways -- why bother?

sighs. typical malaysians. how depressing.

remember, "...it takes ONE to know ONE..." :)

removing my postings ain't gonna help you out on this one...

hey kenny, why do u thnk you have to specify the the model of you phone?

... so yeah so i took the photos with "my SAMSUNG X820 PHONE"

u looking for a sponsor or smthn? or just showing off?

while there's nothing wrong in taking photos, cos i couldn't have done anythn else but watch as well, it's probably best not to publish the photos. if it was someone i knew in the accident im sure as hell i wouldn't want to see those pics.

ps. zeroX, while trucks do have higher torgues and horsepower, this doesn't take into account their weight, and cargo (if any). to go from zero to 60 takes like a minute or smthn. very hard to accelerate, not to mention slow down (momentum shit).

Reminds me of that quote people always say, arguing on the internet is like the special olympics, even if you win you're still retarded. Lol.

Unregistered

oh yeah but its gud tho that you didn't show the victim's body

Unregistered

well, if you didn't delete my comments, it would show that i wasn't yelling abuses at you. but it's just my own opinion of your posting.

Unregistered

hij, I published the name of the phone I used because commenter khensthoth asked me what type of phone camera I used.

With regards to publishing the photo on my blog, I don't think I did anything wrong because photos of car accidents appear in our local newspapers everyday and the photos that went to print were a lot more gruesome. I would think local Malaysians have a lot more tolerance of that seeing as how they are perfectly fine that our newspapers published these photos.

Unregistered

newspapers are to REPORT incidents...

Reporters don't talk about how shocked or distraught they were...

stop preaching for heaven's sake. what exactly do you want KENNY SIA to do?

Unregistered

Whats up with this whole Kenny taking pictures thing?? He just took pictures of accident scence, and don't the newspapers reporters always do so? So do you go scolding all the reporters for taking the pictures?? Kenny was being a good resident to help out at the scene, yet you guys are here talking like this!

HE HELPED, by calling the emegency line, and directing the traffic. WOULD ANYONE OF U HAVE DONE SO IF U WERE AT THE SCENE?? I am sure more than half of u would have just stood there. And why will u just stand there? You will surely answer "cause I did not know what to do." Now this "not knowing what to do" thing happened on Kenny, BUT at least he called and helped out! So whats this whole problem? At this kind of accidents, nothing much can be done.

And Kenny is being nice here, to show you guys, all his readers the importances of safe driving. He cares, and he doesn't want this thing to happen to any of his readers.

Those people who gave the critism are people who can't think right!

Kenny, I am sure you did your best. Cheer up.

My deepest condolences to the family involded in the accident

Unregistered

Kenny is being heartless?? You people have been critizing non stop on this post is merely because this blog owner is KENNYSIA. If it had been posted by a nobody, none of you would even care to leave such comments. Now tell me who's the fucker here?

Kenny, ignore those bastards and dont take it so hard. They are just a bunch of pretentious pathetic pigs with attitude problems who think they are so righteous. They are in fact nobody but HYPOCRITES.

Unregistered

By scolding Kenny Sia is not gonna bring back those deceased back to life. Can you guys just stop it? Get on with your life. Pathetic moron.

Unregistered

Those who are obsessed with the fact that this entry has pictures should have a life.

I reckon from what I read is that the people above who criticize Kenny should stop buying all newspapers and magazines (gossip or disaster). Because you are saying that people who takes the pictures and keeping you all informed of what is happening are being distasteful. Go be a hermit. So Kenny being at the scene and blogs it online is like just acting as what every other newspaper etc are doing.

Because you are not at the scene so you do not have the RIGHT to criticize. Accidents takes forever to clear and Kenny has done what he can, i.e. asking for help. I have a friend in high school who died in a car accident because NO car stopped and asked for help. So stop criticizing and go celebrate the fact that you are still alive and breathing and enjoying God's grace.


Unregistered

hey kenny, don't feel too bad, at least you weren't there to congest traffic majority of malaysians do, and you didn't stop for the purpose of jotting down the car plate number. these people i mentioned only jam up the roads, they slow down their cars just to look but they don't actually get down to help. i mean, what's the point of looking at the accident when they aren't gonna get down and rescue the victims or offer any kind of help? why not just drive quickly so that the ambulance can arrive quickly without getting stuck in traffic jam? malaysia is a country with first class facility [not] but third world mentality.

It's very hard to please everyone. So just do whatever you feel is right Kenny. No matter what you are still the best blogger!

cheer up!

Unregistered

I don't understand those who gave negative comments on this blog entry. I know Kenny can be a little attention craving but since it's his style and we chose to read his blog, why bother? Bloggers are some sort of freelance writers and it's up to him what he wants to write about. I think if you guys read this story from bloggers like Jeff Ooi you wouldn't condemn him right? Cause he's a more serious stuff writer. You guys just tag Kenny as a funny writer and expect all his posts to be amusing. =/

please, for For Heaven's Sake, drop this nonsense about safe driving....

this has nothing to do with safe driving...

if you don't know how to drive safe, or don't already do so... you deserve to be under that truck...

kenny: yes a blog is to DOCUMENT happenings in the blogger's life but shouldn't you be more humane and have some compassion for the deceased and their family? it would have be OK if you had wrote about it and left the pictures out...

my 2 cents.

To the chicken shit who posted comment with the nickname "Kennysia.is.an.idiot". You seemed to be very disturbed. Go and get a sex change, you idiot!

Kenny..kenny...let's do everyone and the victims a favour by removing this blog or removing all the photos.

The key point here is RESPECT!!

Touch wood: Here is an example:
You wouldn't post a photo of your dead family member on the blog and say "oh look here, i feel so distraught coz one my my family member is lying in the coffin now. Oh well, anyway, this is the coffin and you can see a hint of his hair color from this angle"

No no..you wouldn't do it, coz you respect and love your family.

seriously.. those bashing kenny should get a life. the main point of this post is to advice ppl to DRIVE SAFELY. kenny is a person who always takes pictures so obviously its his natural instinct to take pictures. and about him specifying his camera model is because different models might not take such good quality pictures.

if you are unhappy with kenny, why are you still here? jeez. you don't know how it feels to be in his shoes so don't go shooting your head off.

TIME AT STAKE! I mean if Kenny is Superman, I'm sure he'll fly te car with the passenger to General Hospital.
And i'm sure if he's like Tru (Tru Calling), he would help the deceased and the little girl when he wake up the next morning! By that, he would not go to work and he's salary would be cut off.
Remember, no one's perfect. Tell me what you gonna do in that situation? TELL ME! And of course you can.
Kenny, you did what you can do and I respect you for that.

Unregistered

Oh should we pity kenny sia because it's distressful for him for receiving negative comment on his prestigious blog?
Who posted the blog to invite comments in the first place? Who asked for it?
If he is so distressed? Why not jus disable the comment column??
He should feel distressful at the time of the accident, distressful enough for him to leave the scene knowing that he do not have the balls to carry the little girl out of the car.

By the way, even if we type F*ck or Fark or FUCk or FOOK ...they all mean the same feeling. Doesnt matter how we write it.

And if his fans pray to him like god, just call him when you or your families are faced with any tragedies or accident. He will dash right to your place and take photos and blog it bfore the reporter do.

Thanks guys.

For your info, i am one of kenny sia's devoted readers, until today.
I have never leave any positive or negative comments in his blog bfore, until today.

He had jus gone way to far with his "photographic" skills.

As i read his blog, the word "fake" "fake" "fake" keeps popping in my mind and i could not contain the frustration in me any longer.

I need to give him a piece of my mind coz KENNY SIA YOU HAVE GONE WAY TO FAR THIS TIME!!!

Learn your lesson well. No need to defend yourself.
Everyone makes mistakes at one point or another.
Learn from it, apologise, take out the photos and move on with life.

Kenny,

Ignore those moron who know how to criticize only. If i were in your shoe, i might be doing the samething also. The picture you posted is a lesson to all rackless driver and those tail-gaters.

Even the rescue team need a JCB excavator to pull the lorry and the vehicle apart, those moron reader expect you to use your bare hand?

You have all my support.

Sorry kenny. i dont mean to be such a shitass. I am a pathetic loser. you know i looked at the mirror all the time and i knock my head against it a 100 times a day. I have a very small brain infact. Didnt mean to critize you.

Dear Kenny,

Keep to what you believe is right. Ignore the negative comments. One man's meat is another's poison. Who is to say what is tasteless or not?

I am a Kuchingnite currently in the Mid East on assignment. I see broken bodies and sprawled inards everyday. Smashed up skulls and burnt torsos. On TV. Tasteless?

By the way, I bet those complaining about the photos are the same ppl who slow down everytime there is a crash to have a look. Known also as neck benders. Bigots lar this ppl.

By the way, this is no accident. It is a crash. Completely avoidable. So, to other drivers out there...be careful when you drive. 90% of crashes are avoidable with patience and good driving skills.

if you are going to chastise this blogger for taking photos of an accident, how about going up to the traffic department or your government and givin em a tight slap across the face for erecting billboards with pictures of accidents to warn you against speeding?

Sure there are some moral issues but then again, all he did was take pictures of the wreck and not pictures of a lifeless body.

Sure he could have taken the girl into his car instead of the motorcyclist..but hey, were you there? what if the motorcyclist had grabbed her quicker than he could? heck, hes even offering financial backing for the kid..how many of you argumentative cynical bastards would do that?

Ken, you are right. i am such a loser. You see, i am small in size (as in my most important part). I looked at myself i feel like puking all the time. Sorry for being such a pain. I am pathetic and I will eat cow dung for a day just to reconcile myself.

My deepest condolences to the family of the victims who are now probably going through one of the worst times of their lives both in denial and in grieve. May God bless the lil girl that's now fighting for life is the hospital and may she learn to live with this incident and recover from it in time.

And now a note to Kenny Sia, dude, I've always respected your guts, your creativity and your talent in keeping our lives up to date and filled with laughters. A blog is a pretty personal thing and you have the rights to write anything you want it in (well, almost) but I feel maybe u should stop for a moment, a second and imagine if that car belonged to your loved ones and you were reading about it while viewing those pictures in sm fella's blog. Like i said, it aint wrong, but smhow, it doesn't feel that right either eh?

Keep up the good work but learn from these entry.

Unregistered

"what if the motorcyclist had grabbed her quicker than he could?"

Hello? Maybe it's because he was not holding a state of the art technology camera in his hands? That is why he has both hands to save the girl?

While someone was busy taking photo of him carrying the girl? Get it?

If you don't, you can scroll and see the evidence kenny sia took himself?

Unregistered

geez, if you guys are SO frigging disturbed by kenny's post, leave and don't ever come back then, this blog is all about him not you.

After reading those comments, i notice that there are a lot of crazy ppl around.... I think it is because of the stressful life we are having now...

Dear Kenny & everyone,

I didn't write the earlier comment of

"yala feel sorry for the decreased la... and while you are at it feel sorry for the 1000000000 people who die in accident everyday around the world then!"

so you know, I original comment was, I hope you (kenny) are alright.. not being traumatize with this incident. Be safe!

If this comment come out differently from what I type now... I don't know.. maybe I shouldn't write anything in the first place.

Unregistered

you've done your best as a citizen, ignore what others says.

dont think those people that give you negative comments will have the same reaction as you, which is actually come down and help and help to control the scene. they might also not think of taking picture, as picture can in a way help the police to futher investigate the accident.

so, those people that give negative comment probably, will be those slowing down( and create traffic jam) just to see what's happening and say, "wah.. there got accident oh... "

you have done a good deed, good job.. and god will bless you...

Dear Kenny,

managing trauma victims are disturbing..since you are the 1st at the scene...

l would not advise carry the victims by yourself in this situation due to a possiblity that the victims could had a spinal injuries and possible cervical/ neck frature...carry them around in the way in the picture could already killed the gal or cause more injuries..

If you are unfortunate again to be in this situation again..always protect the victims neck by stablising the neck on the road...sandwich your legs in between the victims' head so as no to let them turn their head side to side...
talk to the victims (this can check the airway)..and don't give them anything to eat or drink!!! if they are in shock..put ther legs up and wait for help...

you cannot do much in this situation...we are not mobile hospital..there is only so much you can do..

Takr care of yourself..it's not easy to forget these incidents...taking and chatting with your friends will be a great way to relieve the stressors...

Unregistered

Journalist and reporters taking photos of the accident = Their just doing their job.

Newspaper post the photos of the accident = Good, so that everyone can know what actually happened.

Kenny Sia took the photos and blog about it = Shit ass stuff to do. Being not sensitive, being a pussy.

Come on, what the fuck with you guys out there. You guys who kept criticize people around and never learn is it? I bet if you were in the scene you are only one of those who cause the traffic jam and instead of coming down and help, you just slow you car and look at it. Seriously, do you think that the income he generates through this blog sphere is enough for him cover up his fancy lifestyle? He is not a poor guy that needs to attract some bunch of pussies like all of you who criticize, just for the sake of generating some advertisement income ok?

If you guys think that Kenny is really being harsh and what he did is really wrong, why not you guys go and complain to the newspaper? Start a campaign to protest against what he did instead of being a chicken and come out with stupid nicks and drop idiotic comment. You guys just talk like there's no tomorrow, ask yourself what have you done for the victim's family.

To tell the truth, without reading from Kenny's blog, I don't even know that there's an accident like this happened. At least he did something, but you? Really shame on you guys. I'm shame on myself also since I didnt read the newspaper everyday. But Kenny, you have our support. Just ignore those cock talkers around

Unregistered

ladies and gentlemen, let me first say that from a neutral point of view each and everyone of you be it pro-Kenny or anti-Kenny are in the wrong.

Let us not forget that we are all brought up differently and have different ethics and cultures instilled in us. Some might say that taking photographs of an accident is unethical and vice versa.

Please learn to respect your opponent's views as your opponent might have been brought up in a different society and might feel that what you think is right is actually wrong. Tolerance is the key my friends. We will not go far if we get so easily worked up by a few words from the opposite.

Nobody is right in this case and dear Kenny, I think it is best you do something to satisfy both parties. Perhaps keeping the post there but removing the photos might bring peace to all?

Let us not be strayed away from the actual issue here. The accident was a tragedy which shouldn't had happened in the first place. Please do not be overconfident behind the wheel. Drive safe and take care everyone.

Unregistered

Good job by posting up photos of tragedies /accidents?
DISAGREE

You don't worship him every day and nite hoping for lotteries / better career / getting healthier every year / long life just like praying at other temples, don't you?
WHY GOD? lolz...

Those who posted negative comments are morons?
HMM.. EVERYONE IS FREE TO EXPRESS THEIR THOUGHTS. OTHERWISE, WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS COMMENT BOX?

I BELIEVED THAT THESE PPL WHO POSTED UP NEGATIVE COMMENTS ARE TO ADVICE HIM, BUT, POSTED IN DIFFERENT WAYS OF WRITING / PRESENTING THEIR THOUGHTS.

Perhaps, things would be better if the photos weren't posted in the post.

Unregistered

I think it was kind of Kenny to try to assist the victims even if it was just to lend others his cell phone. I dont think his pictures will be used as police evidence. The police will probably has their own photo evidence. But the adjusters and claimant's will probably want the photos for use at the trial of the action. Kenny might be called as a witness since he was at the scene of the accident and he, Kenny Sia is the only identifiable witness to the accident for blogging about it..:-)

I've been a reader for a long time Kenny and I think even you know that this post is totally not your style. At least I hope it isn't.

Perhaps you were a little eager to share with us your experience but the photos are not necessary. I know I would hate having my loved ones tragic photos plastered on a website.

I've always thought you to be kind, sensitive and considerate, be that then to this family. Search your heart Kenny, and do the right thing.

Gosh, what a freak incident it is. My condolences to the family.

Those that criticized, think twice before you post. Kenny took the guts to take those photographs and shared the moment with all of us here.

Kenny is just sharing his experience with us, this is his blog, not a public forum, what is there for you guys to judge good or bad?

You called him cowards, i bet you'll peed in your pants when you see dead bodies at the scene.

Please guys, this is a very good lesson to learn, and Kenny did GREAT, i repeat, he did GREAT by posting his entry.

Those that not happy with this, you can always leave, there's so many other blogs and internet content to read, the world doesn't end at Kennysia.com.

Peace.

Unregistered

Some people attack Kenny for the sake of attacking. They will just keep on looking for imperfections in how he has reacted to that Kenny looks stupid reacting that way. To these people, I have only pity for them.

There are those who says that it is not right for Kenny to post the pictures of the accident here. Or some who just wander.. perhaps what one of you guys could do.. or Kenny could do is to ask the family involved. (I would like to do so but I am not staying in Malaysia so it's rather inconvenient)

I have been reading Kenny's blog for quite some time now and I sincerely believe that he is not doing this just to create more hype for his blog. I think it has got to do with his consistent care and concern for those who are less fortunate. For those who are in doubt, please do ask yourselves who Kenny is to you.. not just from this incident but from everything that you know about him for the past years. Could he have faked all these? Unlikely to me...

In the event that the family affected choose to have the pictures taken down, I am sure Kenny would do so. Not so much because anyone feels so but the family involved.

For the rest of us, I appeal to have the unfortunate family in your heart and really ask what else you could do for them.. It could be a prayer, a donation or anything else within your means.

I hope my message could do something for them. And my prayers too. Treasure your loved ones. :)

Unregistered

lets wonder how a man like Kenny speaking about trying to help & ends up taking loads of photos & post it in his blog... Kuching is small, ppl could recognize the car & rumors will spread. Kenny should have some respect for the dead, instead he could pray or take away the car's plate number instead of TAKING PHOTOS...

Later on, he would offer donations & a lending hand, later on he would be famous for offering help & gets publicized. don't u think all he wants is just a breaking news on his blog??

Please Kenny... try to do better things than scoring points on the expenses of others...

Unregistered

very well said , totally agree with d above.

Its pretty inconsiderate to be taking photos and posting it up like this esp when it involved people that has passed on (so you were helping, snapping, helping, snapping? pray tell how did you accomplished that while feeling what you felt?). I thought you would be one of the better ones but I supposed all are the same, trying to increase the readership. Tsk tsk!

You can only do that much by asking Kenny to change. You can do much more doing other things for the family. Things that could really benefit the family.

"and not to critize you but for i know for sure every accident we received at least 2 calls as the operator will fear it is just a prank call."
Posted by: I'm A Chicken With No Name. BWAK BWAK BWAKKKKK! at 18 May 2007 10:48 AM

- Just curious: Do I get it right that if the operator receives only one single call for a particular incident it would be treated as a prank call? So in the future, in order to get them alerted & send an ambulance for rescue, we have to call at least twice, or we'll never get help?

Unregistered

HAHA I agree that is the best comment! which bring us to this

if kenny is to look for more viewers and publicity for his blogs then he succeed!!! Congrats!

However if he really meant to express his feelings of how helpless and pity he is towards the victims, i'm afraid based on all these comments he fail miserably.

hey kenny,
i guess i'll have to agree that the pictures in newspaper aren't exactly as bad as urs, except maybe in chinese newpapers where somehow they like publishin pictures of the victims body/face (as opposed to english papers).

but then i'd rather see the photos in the 'official' public media. if i knew, or was related to the victims, it's just a bad vibe reading stuff like this on sum1 else's blog- sorta like tokin behind ppl's backs. wouldn't be gud to be in their shoes i'll have to say.

but hey im just being critical.

Unregistered

Kenny, how about you admit you made a mistake, take the damn photos down, and move on?

It was wrong for you to put those photos up, morally speaking, and whilst morality might be a subjective issue, it is clear that most of your readers seem to feel that this post falls into the immoral category.

The main reason something like this is frowned upon is this:Let us say, touchwood, that this was to happen to someone in your family. How would you feel if 2 weeks or 2 months or even 2 years after the incident, you stumble upon these photographs on the internet? What about the victim's teenage brother who has been protected from seeing the gruesome photos and has been denied access to the details of the accident? What happens when he sees these photos one day when he is looking for some jokes to cheer himself up on the previously funny kennysia.com?

You should really be more considerate Kenny. If you really want to make money from your new advertising partners, why not set up a Malaysian branch for ogrish.com or one of those other sicko websites? Is this really the way?

I saw an accident the other day right in the middle of KL. The police were putting the dead body into a body bag, and there were about 20-30 people standing around taking photos with their handphones. I told myself that only the lowest of the lowliest lifeforms could possibly want to record a scene like that in permanent form. It's as if seeing that happen wouldn't scar you enough, you had to take photos just in case you finally forget about it.

Kenny, please do the right thing. You can still redeem yourself. It takes a great man to admit his mistakes, and you will gain, not lose respect from others if you do.

Also, in relation to this phrase in one of your above comments : "Mate, if it weren't for me the ambulance wouldn't even have arrived", may I suggest that you apologise for this as well, or at the very least delete it?

To make yourself look like a traffic-directing martyr on the one hand, and then on the other hand claiming to be the hero who saved the girl's life is rather hypocritical dont you think? But wait a minute, didn't you say that the 1 survivor was rushed to the hospital by an onlooker? So what exactly did the Kenny Sia-commissioned ambulance do? Hero? I don't think so.

Some Newspaper cutting to share:

一家五口4慘死
(古晉17日訊)一家五口今午驅駛本田轎車外出返家路經石角馬當路途中,突告失控駛入逆道迎面猛撞羅厘,導致轎車前半段嚴重撞至毀不成形卡在羅厘車底,釀4人當場慘死車內悲劇。
該4名慘死車內的女死者皆已被證實,為現年22歲的劉曉慧(譯音)女司機、現年47歲前座乘客張秀祺(譯音),及分別2歲及8個月左右的女童,而目前仍搶救中的女童則為年約5歲。
該名女司機及前乘客2人為母女關係,而后座的2名女童則為女司機的女兒,至于該名仍在搶救中的女童,則是前乘客死者的另1名女兒之女。
該意外是在今日下午3時左右,于石角馬當路某住宅區附近路段處發生。
有關車禍發生當時,該名經營本市某小學食堂生意的女司機,正驅駛著該輛青色的本田轎車,載著其母親、2名女兒及1名侄女,從石角路準備返回馬當瑪利哈花園住家。
毀不成形
豈料,卻在路經車禍現場路段處途中,行駛中的轎車突告失控駛入逆道,不偏不倚與1輛迎面而來的羅厘發生劇烈猛撞,導致轎車前半段毀不成形猛撞卡入羅厘車頭底。
車禍后,女司機頭破血流、雙腳骨折當場重傷身亡、同樣因頭部受劇烈猛撞的前乘客亦逃不過死劫身亡,至于后坐的3名女童中,其中2名重傷斃命。
至于該名5歲的女童,被發現時仍有生命跡象,至今仍未度過危險期。

Hi Kenny,

I've always been reading your blog and this is the first time that I am actually commenting. I would not say that it is bad that you go around taking photos of an accident scene. I think it is noble of you to actually try to help and instead like most people, would just slow down and take a look and then drive off.

What I think is that you should only post the first four photos and then describe your whole experience from those. This allow people to understand what the accident scene is like.

I am not very good with word but what I think is that, yes, by putting photos in your blog allow us to know what you were seeing at that time but sometimes, people might not want to know or might not be able to stomach those scenes. People like those who are directly affected by the accident (relatives or friends) might find that those photos are in bad taste. Especially if they see photo 5 and 6 where they can see someone they might be close to being in those situation.

It is up to you on what you want to post on your blog and like what I said earlier, I would not say that it is bad of you to go around posting those photos but just place yourself in other people shoes at times. They might not feel what you feel.

To the family affected by this accident, I send my condolences.

aiya...u ppl say so much. next time u dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. u complain so much abt kenny putting up the photos but u still look.u complain he's insensitive but u still read. what did YOU do? nothing constructive?leave it be la.

the main subject it not about kenny's insensitivity or otherwise. it's about reckless driving and lack of road safety campaigns. get a life! dont throw it away

seems this post has brought many long-time lurkers to voice their opinions, and most of them point in the same direction. i'm in that same boat.

honestly, i whole heartedly agree with jon stu. it was and definitely still is plain inappropriate to whip your camera out at the scene of an accident as severe as this one.

granted, you did what you could to help out, and that much is admirable. at what point of time, however, did you decide you wanted to start taking photos? just because you used your phone camera doesn't make the fact that you took the photos any less disturbing. you could've used the most discreet spy cam or a mother-big dslr and it wouldn't have made a difference because it isn't so much the photos, but rather your intention of taking them in the first place that is troubling.

you do have the right to document your life and what goes on in it. however, you decided to share these tasteless photos knowing that tens, or maybe hundreds of thousands of people would eventually stumble onto this page. comparing kennysia.com to a tabloid, honestly is equivalent to comparing the four seasons hotel to a sleazy motel and if you'd be willing to stoop to that level by posting these pictures, then it is your blog.

but out of courtesy to the victims' family, and to your readers who strongly oppose against the posting of these pictures, imho i feel you should take the pictures off. the first four pictures were taken from a journalistic angle. the rest bordered on offensive, and i almost retched when i saw 20070518-6.jpg.

sorry to say but this post was taken a bit too far, kenny. out of basic courtesy and the fact that you represent the same moral values as a lot of your readers do, i implore you to remove the pictures. at least some of them.

hope this comment doesn't get lost in the sea of kennysia bludgeoning and exaltation.

Although the intention was good, it would still have been advisable not to physically manage the girl even though she was still breathing. Her ribs might have been broken or skull fractured, and carrying her away like that without medical help might kill her instead.

oh so nowadays comments can only be positive ones....like praising kenny noble, polish his shoes that he doing the right thing and lick his balls that he have every right to post stuff on his blog.

negative one go away, don read! don see! kenny boy boy and all his supporters want to be ostrich bury their cibai head in sand let them be! don go comment ok!

GWN : "Just the same as all those who have judged him here have the right to place their comments here on his space. This is the internet man...No one forced anyone to read it."

Speaking of rights, he has the RIGHT to blog on what he did, we have the RIGHT to comment here, and he has the RIGHT to delete our comments. But enough about rights. Let us talk about being considerate. Let us talk about not being heartless. Let us talk about not using a tragedy to boost one's popularity.

yushi_gurl : "u guys more interested to fight than show condolenses here :/"

And showing condolences HERE of all places does what? When X suffers loss, we show X condolences. We don't go to X's neighbour, or some random drug addict on the street to express condolences about X's loss. If you really wanted to show your condolences, you would say a silent prayer for the deceased and their families, and not type it out in some random blog, especially one where the graphic photos of the accident, including details as to how the lorry's "spoiler" (shouldn't it be bumper, Kenny?) reached the driver's headrest. Now, correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't the head rest against the headrest? What would Kenny's statement suggest? Hmmm...

annoyed : "u complain so much abt kenny putting up the photos but u still look.u complain he's insensitive but u still read. what did YOU do? nothing constructive"

Well Mr. annoyed, not everyone can be at the right place at the right time like our superhero ambulance caller Kenny Sia. I personally did not do anything. But what I DID NOT DO is to take photos of the incident like some uneducated unrefined person. I looked at the photos, yes. But I did not take the photos, AND I don't want to look at them again.

Unregistered

Kenny, this is my first time writing a comment on your blog. Something just catch my attention. Why are you asking your reader to answer if you should help in any way possible especially financially ? We know that you are from a well-off family and please if you feel like giving a donation to the little girl or the family do so.. quietly. If you feel like visiting her in the hospital by all means do so. As I see that there is not so much of a point here to show it in your blog, somemore asking for other's approval. What if we say you should donate RM 1 million to the kid can u do it ? I would say for those people who wish to give a donation, do so in a manner answerable to your heart, not passing the responsibility to others and worst still making a hugh puiblicity out of it.

One more thing, if you are really feeling guilty of the whole thing, u would be considerate enough not to put all this things up in the net at the first place. There is a thin fine line between trying to fake that you are sorry(to get the publicity) and you being truely sorry. And this blog has been pushing that limit abit too much I think. As for the photos I dont think it is wrong that you took them, but I think it is just wrong that u post them here in the web. Yes it is something that does not happen everyday in your life, u can take as many pic as u like for your self-keeping but putting it up here, somemore all 9's of them is jsut showing to us that u wanted the publicity. Nothing more. Period.

OMG, I am sorry to hear that. My condolence to the family.

Don't speed, no matter what. I nearly crashed with a van when I was trying to overtake a lorry when I was in Perth. The lorry did not slow down and I was driving an old car. Luckily that was a straight road, the incoming van saw me and tried his best to drive close to his left hand side. I was just inches from death.

After that incident, I never want to overtake a vehicle.

You have done your best, Kenny.

I bet half of you guys who complained about Kenny taking the photo didn't even bother to read Kenny's explanation.

He himself is a professional blogger, taking photos to further let us readers visualize the scene wasn't wrong.

He could have choose not to take the photos some of you might say. But, I felt that he was not overboard. He did not take the photos of the victims. As he said, rather than being an on-looker, he gave whatever help he could. Rather than driving by, he stopped and gave help. Yes, it does not earn him the right to take the photos but what more can he do?

Imagine you are a professional blogger for years, what is the first thing coming up to your mind? I believe that is what Kenny trying to do, taking photos and showing it to us all, forgetting about the faults he might make.

His intentions was right, his habit was natural and he did what he usually do.

Too many of you are looking at too many different sides of this story. Back to basic, it's all about Kenny's thoughts on the accident. Why think further?

Unregistered

and u fcking hav time for photoshoot for ur blog?

I agree kenny can put all these on his blog, and the pictures some might not feel good but i'm ok wif it, but all the content where he feel bad and sad and helpless not to mention himself lambasting all his critics are so LAME.

You are such a FAKER but i am ok wif it cause there are fakers everywhere. Why not camwhore a picture of you crying in the background? that will sure convince few more people what a saint you are!

Really? Sorry, but this is the 1st time I read sbd's blog, so didn't know that the nick of "i'm a chicken wif no name" can be whoever... So it means I will never get an answer for the question I've asked regarding the emergency calling then... Thanks for informing though.
Anyway, honestly I'm very surprised to know such a popular blog, besides those celebrities, of cos - there're always new comments every time I refreshed the page - AMAZING!
(Those anti-kenny, please don't shoot me for this - I'm just expressing what I thought...)

Unregistered

"Do unto others what you want others to do unto you".

Kenny, if you honestly followed that principle when you took those pics and posted them, then I have nothing to say. Indeed, I respect you for doing at least as much as you thought you were capable of. I believe you did your best, under the circumstances.

AS for all the other commenters, the above quote applies to you too.

Enough said.

dont be sorry, its not your fault that it happened.

Those photoes went too far? you guys seriously don't know what sorts of pictures a reporter take. WTF is wrong with taking photos of a car filled with dead people? Can you tell me? disrespect to the victims? Did kenny show full bodies of the victims? Haven't you guys heard of the term citizen reporter before?

If people were in kenny's shoes i bet most of them will be snaping pictures too. Its not like he sells the photos to the press to earn himself some crazy money? It's just that its a gruelsome moment that deserves to be captured and made into a self reminder how horrible the accident was. In kenny's case, he wants to share something he saw, something that might be the most gruelsome incident he saw and he wanted to share it. Isn't it not wad normal people do? No?

Dear hypocrites, please don't pretend you're a saint or something, please don't showoff your so called how-i-would-save-the-day-if-i-were-u thing, it makes u sound so low.

oh my.. this is really sad. my condolonces to the family of the victims.

Just curious, i work in telecommunications and probably can answer your call, i think what the ambulance driver means is that whenever an accident happens there will be at least 2 calls to report the accident, hence confirming it as real (or the prankster is really free).

This is due to whenever an accident happens in a space of say 10-30 minutes there will be good citizens who will call the emergency line to report the incident. Kenny might be the first but highly likely he won't be the only person to call for ambulance. Unless his Samsung phone is really the best in having an reception. Cheers

Dear Nzboy,

I think you can safely assume that most of the people here would not put down "taking photos of car accidents and dead peoples' legs" as their occupations when filling up forms.

What may I ask is the point of Kenny's big impact? You say that it is not humiliating, and you are right. It is not possible to feel humiliated once you are dead. In fact, I don't think it is possible to feel anything when you are dead. It is however highly disrespectful. Maybe if YOU had used YOUR BRAIN (assuming you have one), you would have thought of this before typing a post in CAPS. Now everyone's attention will be drawn to your stupidity.

If Kenny had said that 4 people died when a car got into a head-on collision with a lorry, I think most people would be able to imagine how bad it was.

Another thing, take a look at the 1st photo. Kenny, did you have in mind this blog entry when you snapped that photo? Were you picturing how you will be telling the story on your blog, and how you needed a good introductory photo? Were you picturing yourself getting a medal of honour from the police for your heroic efforts?

John Stu + Ng, I do not mean any disrespect to the family and I most certainly do not mean to be inconsiderate. If the driver's husband or the young girl's parents request that I remove this entry, I will respectfully do so.

Having said that, I wonder why you have established double standards towards me and towards the newspapers. Are you only disturbed by photos of a car accident on my blog, or are you similarly disturbed by photos of car accidents, tragedy, famine and war splashed across our newspapers every single day? If you can convince photojournalists of cnn.com to stop publishing 'inconsiderate' photos of war and tragedies, I promise you I will remove this posting as well. But please don't have double standards.

John Stu + Ng, you said that I am inconsiderate and disrespectful. Actually, I doubt your sincerity towards the victim's family. Tell me, now that you know of this unfortunate incident that has befallen this family: Are you going to actively provide them with help and support, or are you just gonna stop at bashing kennysia.com?

Unregistered

if there is ambulance available, they will attend to you, what i mean is normally there will be at least a call for help, if you in rural area i'm sure you will get attended too, provided you are able to hang on (touch wood), you might consider to use Kenny endosed mobile as he claims to be able to call in rural areas :) no more curious already right!

tears rolled down my cheeks when i was reading this post
and i think i got the msg

Kenny, there are hundreds of accidents happening everyday. Why should I provide help and support to this particular victim? Because the famous celebrity Kenny Sia is rallying behind them for his own personal reasons? Even if I did do something for any victim of any tragedy, no one will know about it, because I wont publish it on the internet, unlike you.

And I have not seen a photo in any local english daily as gruesome as the one in this posting. Also, please do not equate yourself to a cnn reporter. They ARE journalists. You write crap here half the time. The reason people come back is because its funny. Not for the journalistic value. Please do not think so highly of yourself. You are nowhere close to being a cnn floor sweeper, what more a cnn reporter.

And if you are such a great journalist, why are you not aware of the journalists code of conduct that was brought about by the Hillsborough Disaster in England?

To the extend of I will go and try to help out if I can even to just to bring the body out... and I've done it. I know the how it felt to see dead bodies lying motionless and it just sank your heart not knowing what to do. It's okay... you've done your part. God bless. :)

Thank you for this entry, you open my eyes and hopefully to more speed monsters that driving recklessly which only lead to disastrous consequences in the end, sooner or later.

The pictures are not distasteful nor unrespectful to the victims or family of the victim or even the passerby. You took photos of the wreck (not the victims) to post it on your blog to serve as a reminder on how fragile life can be, and how easily life can be lost in our own hands. The accident can be prevented.

Do ignore those who did not understand your intention/reason. They are too naive (I may say) to see the whole picture of the picture. (:P)

My condolence for the victims and their family and friends.

Be strong kenny!

Opinions, opinions.

Kenny,

Abusive? Stop being a drama queen.

"Clearly you do not have the victim's welfare in your hearts at all."

First, I only have 1 heart, unfortunately. 2nd, whether or not I have the victim's welfare in my "hearts", at least I did not disrespect them, nor did I try to gain popularity off their tragedy.

You have clearly misunderstood my statement " "Why should I provide help and support to this particular victim?".

Why this particular one? Why don't you give money to the family of every single person who dies in an accident? Just because you feel more strongly about this because you personally witnessed it doesn't mean others should too. Maybe I feel more strongly about something else? About some other victim of some other tragedy?

Kenny, how can a future CNN anchor be unable to understand such a simple statement?

And I make you sick but your photos don't?

Unregistered

Kenny i think you lost it.... don't take john stu words out of it's context, i don't think he meant that he has no intention to help people, instead it is a hypothetical question towards you. So keep your cool ok?

Unregistered

Dear Kenny,

Well, to be frank, I was very angry that you choose to publish these photos. I can't stop uttering wtf upon the sightings of it. All those things you said and those pictures you posted would instantly pop up the word FAKE FAKE FAKE in head!!! I mean, how could someone be so calm to snap so many photos when it's such an emergency? You definitely can't blame those negative comments. We just can't help ourselves but to be angry at the fact that you could walk up to the car and snap the 6th picture. You know, the picture of that poor kid which could win you RM50 from The Star if you send it to them? I mean, the first picture already could speak a thousand words, so there's no such need you should speak another thousand words. You could just mention “Today I saw an accident. [Picture] It was horrifying but I did help. Hail me,” That’s it. You’re done. BUT NOOOO. You must give a long speech plus some hyperbole. Boss Stewie also had such problem last time but did he snap picture? Well, he did. But he did it after the accident. That’s why he is hailed as a hero while you’re… zero.

I don’t think a norm blogger will get criticized until to the 18th floor of Hell if he blog about some accident. So what make you difference? You have status. You have reputation. You are Malaysia’s top blogger and there’s no doubt about it. Thus YOU, of all people, should know what kind of topic will generate positive or negative comments. So did you anticipate such problem will occur? I don’t know. But I can tell you, there’s nothing people like the most than to see the fall of a champion (Chelsea, anyone?). In Chinese saying, I would say you ‘la si seung sun’ (pull shit on yourself). Speaking of being the top in the business, you do know you have a responsibility, right? You are like the king and many (or maybe just some) people idolize you and just want to be like you! You do know you have children reading your blog. What kind of message you’re trying to tell them? Do you want them one day when they grow up to prioritize taking pictures more than helping in an accident? Think bout it!

Morally speaking, I am proud of you to lend you hands. I really do. But morally speaking again, I am not proud of you to snap pictures of the accident. I’m glad you’re so calm trying to help in this situation but I’m not glad you’re so calm snapping pictures. I dare to say you dare to blog about it because you know the girl’s still alive. If the girl is dead (touch wood), I don’t think you would even mentioned it in Short Talk. To me, you are acting both angel and devil now. Clearly despite such panic, I believe while you’re busy clearing the traffic, there’s one tiny voice in your mind saying, “This will make an interesting to blog about,” Prove me wrong.

Despite the negative comments, I'm sure these 200+ people have received the important message you are trying to deliver that reckless driving is really... reckless. How do I know? Well, at least those negative comments didn’t say anything like, “PADAN MUKA!!” But what’s really matter is the chatbox at the side of your blog. This bunch of people is clearly ignorant (or half-ignorant) about the issue you brought up. They are busy talking about karaoke when you are busy fending off the negative comments. IMHO, I think they’re even worse than those negative commenters. Would you rather want people to respond to you regardless what you blog or fail to see the very message you’re trying to deliver? I prefer the former.

Besides, if you really dislike those negative comments, you could just simply disable it. Or even better, you could protect this entry. But heck, it’s too late to fix this problem since most of your readers surely had read it. Unless you do something silly like donating half your allowance to the victim or publicly say sorry, I don’t see how you get out of this big mess. Seriously, you do need to admit you’re wrong at the taking pictures part. Bear in mind you’re not wrong at helping people. Just say you’re wrong will not make you lose face, in fact you will gain more respect as it took a lot out of a man to admit he’s wrong. Just admit you have gone too far this time. Be a man, do the right thing.

In the end, it’s just my 2 cents. I stand neither at the positive nor the negative commenters.

Hey Perspective,

Funny you chose that nickname.

Also, funny you should choose to waste 1 whole line to state the obvious i.e that I am not Kenny.

And kudos to you for reading through all my posts and concluding that I was not there. That was genius.

I never said that I am a better person than he is. I may be a rapist/murderer. But I would not have taken those photos in the 1st place. Taking the photos in itself is the behavious of a person who deserves to be caged like an animal. Later posting them on a blog that has a readership as wide as kennysia.com does, well, that goes beyond words.

I am curious as to why you said this : "Even if he did make a mistake, he's only human." because, yes IF he did make a mistake, he is in fact only human. However due to the numerous technological advances in recent history, an "apology" has now been invented, and so has a delete button. Maybe you should grab your latest IT magazine for updates on this.


Unregistered

Should photos be posted? Yes? No? I just think everyone should just shut the fuck up. It is ridiculous and it sounds that it is more of a anti-kenny tirade rather than a debate about morality or insensitivity.
John Stu, I very very strongly disagree with what you said and I won't waste another single breathe because self-righteous that you are will surely see nothing wrong in your long comments.

Everyone, please just shuddup

Omigosh!! May she rest in peace...

maybe kenny can post out the contacts for these caring peoples to help the girl if necessary. :)

Unregistered

Kenny, since you are so compassionate and kind and can be comparable to Mother Theresa, why not stop blogging and go around and donate money and offer yourself or volunteer for those who need your help?

Just because you happen to witness an accident and have time to take photos, load them onto your PC and blog them doesn't automatically make you a compassionate person who do not have other self induced intentions.

Stop faking it...

Well, John Stu, the only point I'm trying to make is that none of us has the right to judge others. None of us are perfect.

Quoted from John Stu

"I never said that I am a better person than he is. I may be a rapist/murderer. But I would not have taken those photos in the 1st place."

So u think raping and murdering someone is not that serious compared to Kenny snapping pictures of an accident scene har?

Unregistered

Kenny is very depress already! stop harrassing him! can't you see he doesn't want to discuss anymore, if we want to bark bark loud loud he also won't comment cause he already took alot effort in pushing his blog popularity today already... can't you see all the effort put in it? damn he still has a day job to take into account man... now beat it until the next accident happen ok!

Unregistered

oh.. its too late :( sorry..

Unregistered

[B]Infectioner[/B] i recon you read all the comment posted before u started trying to show off ur good command in english. or u are just too ignorant and wanted kennysia to agree with ur stance about taking picture of the accident scene.

Clearly he stated that he took the picture only AFTER everything has settled down. Why u guys keep insisting that the first thing that came to his mind is "OMFG! take picture quick! this is rare!"

And what is wrong about taking picture of the car wreckage? MIND YOU THERE IS NOT EVEN ANY GORE IN THAT PICTURE FOR GOODNESS SAKE!

And lets remind all the retards out there, HE SAID HE TOOK THE PICTURE ONLY WHEN THERE IS NOTHING MORE HE COULD DO. He already did whatever he could.

I bet those retards who criticising so much here would be the one who stay in the car driving as slow as they could to take a glimps of the accident and poof, life goes on as usual. Instead of stopping and provide help.

Unregistered

think this is a journalistic take on the accident...

about morals... how about journalists who take pics in warzone? they cant do anything to help too.. should they then not take pics?

or kenny isnt entitled to take pics?

whatever, think before anyone start throwing daggers and swords at another, reflect on own morals first

Unregistered

Dear Taking pictures of accident is worse than murder/rape!, you are obviously another foolish idiot who does not understand the point I am trying to put across. If you don't have a proper understanding of the english language don't comment, as what you say will go off on a tangent.


Well Perspective,

By singling me out, are you sure you are not indirectly throwing one of your imaginary stones? What are the implications of what you are saying? By singling me out and saying generally that no one has the right to judge others are you not saying that I am being judgemental? Looks like Kenny has a fellow saint in Perspective. 2 of you can drive around together patrolling the streets to take photos of accident victims and at the same time calling ambulances.

Unregistered

oh.. its too late :( sorry..

Many of you do not understand one simple concept:

If that was your family that died in that accident, you would be not be so eager to defend Kenny's choice to put up pictures of your dead family in the car that they died in.

We make our own ways in life, and do things according to our beliefs and judgement. We also bear the consequences of our actions.

June, Kenny couldn't help take the girl to the hospital. He had to stay around so that the police could get his name to verify that he was the most helpful one there. Plus, he had to get more photos.

Well, John Stu, I apologize if I've hurt your feelings. I'm just enjoying this verbal warfare.

Just think about what I've said. I meant well.

p.s. I'll make sure I call the ambulance.

John 8:3

The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?" They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."

Firstly, Kenny, the fact that you are defending so vigorously your stance shows that those comments struck a nerve, and deep down you do feel bad for what you have done. That's Psychology 101.

Secondly, helping someone does not have to involve publicising how you have helped, and saying things like "had i not done this, that wouldn't have happened". Saving a life is a beautiful thing, flaunting that you have saved a life or aided the saving of a life is sad. Sad in the sense that you seem to want recognition for that.

Thirdly, posting pictures and descriptions of what happened, especially when it involves the passing on of 4 lives, is a bit inconsiderate. Why? Because blogging about the dead in a blog that people usually associate with "entertainment" is just plain wrong.

Fourthly, there is absolutely no difference between snapping pictures with hi-tech cams and sitting down oil-painting the scene. Both involve capturing an event. And a heart-wrenching event at that.

Lastly, I quote "The LEAST you could do is call Sarawak General Hospital (+6082 257555), find out about her condition, and if need be, pledge a donation to her family. If you have already done so, you have my praise. If you haven't, shame on you." Unquote. Alright, so you have "donated", big deal. And as if people care whether they have your praises or not, hey? And this ties in with Point Number 2.

I know, Kenny, you expected people to heap praises on you for "doing good" when you clicked the "Post This Awesome Entry" button - but it ended up showing how immature you are deep down. I admit I have been a vivid reader of your blog, but when true colours shine through, they ironically pale my perceptions of you as a blogger and as a person. I am not trying to personally attack you, but I am disappointed.

Utterly disappointed.

Unregistered

John STU, that is a very good comment you posted there.

I understand Kenny's predicament in staying around to take more photos for his fellow readers.

Without these tragedic and heart wrenching photos, there would not be enough impact for the readers to feel for him.

Totally understand.

Unregistered

As a blogger I can understand that you took the photo so that u can blog it. And you seriously wanna blog this to warn ppl about the consequence of speeding.

So? Take one, and help!

What r u doing when the guy carried the girl out? Taking photo?

That was gross...you seriously NEED NOT to take so many photos....to show the sequence of the happening...from the beginning till the end....it's too much...

and....you can pen down the happening....if you wish to tell ppl about the sequence of incident...

Taking photo from the beginning till the end? Sorry, I can't accept it as being a good samaritan.

kiraion, it's not from the beginning lah.. he did all he could do already... he DIRECTED TRAFFIC you know... a CELEBRITY directing traffic man... come on... how often does that happen?

and kiraion, if you did not call the hospital to ask about the girl, SHAME ON YOU!

Unregistered

Another thing that pisses me off is that in that particular photo where a motorcyclist is carrying the little gal, there was also an overweight guy putting his hands over his shoulders as an emotional support. You can see that they both care.

As for kenny sia, the posting of that photo shows us that he cares enough to the the photo and post it in his blog. Good for you kenny sia. I feel for the 2 guys that tried to help and as for you, you seemed like a real jerk by hiding behind your camera.

Unregistered

To be honest, it is normal for kenny to take photo...if not him, someone else will. does it make any diff if kenny takes them instead of some other journalist or any other policemen? the point here, is about the accident...

and it is normal for you to be 'dumb'..and nobody really expect you to do anything..i am a fully trained first aider, even by saying so, it's quite hard to react. the best you can do is to shut off the engine to prevent the car from blowing off. only if you're sure enough, then you can move any casualty. if you're not confident, just wait for the ambulance to arrive. Byah!!!

First of all, Kenny, I'm sorry to hear such a tragic news. i ever witness an accident b4, except it's not THAT serious. and i know what it's like. ur brain goes empty immediately. u wanted to do something but u just can't. it's not that u don't want. >

2nd, wtf is all these people bashing this post? it's annoying. and please. if you hate this post, u can just post ur comments "ohh i hate it WHY POST PICTURES bla bla bla". THEN? LEAVE LA!! WTF U ALL STILL DOIN HERE?! kenny had already post his replies and i think that's reasonable, wat for u all still wanna talk so many damn critic things?

Very hard to react in such situations is also a very lame coward excuse!

If it's so hard and difficult to react, why are there people helping out the little girl?

Everyone should just give a coward excuse by saying,"oh i could not react, let us all just take pictures and blog it. This will make this world a better place to live in."

Unregistered

Kenny, you made a wrong move there.

You shld not have taken the photo of people helping out the little girl.

In fact, you shld take photos of yourself calling the police and also directing traffic.

That would prove that you did a lot to help out the victims.

Unregistered

AND YOU ARE STILL TAKING PHOTOS???!!!! FOR YOUR BLOG????

Unregistered

don't blame Kenny for this post. He may have good intentions posting this blog entry, such as making us aware of the danger of wreckless driving, how life is precious, and maybe make us aware of this situation in case we face it in the future, since he thinks that he didn't help out enough. I don't blame him cos anyone will be in a state of distraught when facing this situation. But seriously, I still don't know how he took the pictures (the camera must've pretty good anti-shake mode! :P)
May the deceased RIP.

Unregistered

shame on ya all... if u r in the situation, will u stop n helped? or will juz 'omg.. how sad..' n drives away...

talking bullshyt is not enough.. make a sense dude..
it's no offence taking the pics.. he juz wanna share wid u guys his 'rare' experience.. yet such unexpected comments happen.. lol..

if u r not happy wid it.. dun read... leaves! God noes whose heart is sincere...

Kenny, Well done your pictures might actually help the investigatiom. I can understand how you feel. You are shaken up.

Good on you for posting the pictures. The thing with our drivers is that they dont value life. Life is cheep for them. You hv been abroad u know how people are so responsible and follow rules.

You can post 100 pictures thousands many die but our drivers will still be the same. The mentality is truly third class.

i saw the news said that, the child that just passed away is only 5 years old. While the others whom died on the spot with their mum, was only 2 yr old and 8 months old. It could be you in the news if you do not take lessons from this.

This accident occured when the lady trying to take over but unsuccessful. Bang with the truck from the opposite side.

This really remind me of my own experience. I am studying in Melaka. One day, when my mum brought along my bro and my sis picked me from MMU(Uni) to Seremban. Before we reach the highway, a lot of cars in front of us. My mum couldn't see the front, and she was wondering why those cars keep waiting and feel a bit impatient about it. So she just drove to the right trying to take over the front cars. Just when we were on the right lane, there was a big truck(without the long tail) moving towards us. My mum was shocked, well, I was shocked too. My mum was totally stunned. She didn't do anything else except just move forward.

All of sudden, we heard a loud honk from the truck. The truck managed to move to the other side, avoiding our car(kancil).

We were lucky to be still alive. My mum was not patient enough to wait. After the incident, no one saying anything in the car, tried not to cause any anger or guilt since we had a long journey still.

My message was, please be patient no matter what on the road. Do learn some lesson from this post. Life is fragile.

Unregistered

John stu u sound like someone who are jealous of his popularity and take this opportunity to bash kennysia.com

I think u forget some important point here.
First, this is his blog, his personel online diary. You dont walk into people's life and teach them what to write in thier diary do you?

Secondly, heck, from what i see he didnt beg you guys to read his blog. He just publish whatever he wants, he has the freedom to do so. Why should he change his writing style for the sake of the crowd... especially YOU! who has nothing to do with his life. Dont mould someone else to suit ur taste. If you dont like it then dont read.

Thirdly, taking picture of accident scene which do not involve the details of victim. i dont see any problem with that. Which part of the picture is so gruesom to you? Clearly u are just trying to exaggerate thing just to flame kennysia.com

Fourthly, he took the initiative to offer help by directing traffic. Why are u being so heartless to make fun of it? If u were there what would u have done? Judging from the way u talk here, u wont even care to stop and offer any help. As i said, u are among the traffic slower, u will slow down just to take a glimps of it.

Finally, picture of volunteer carrying the little girl. So erm, u wanted kennysia to tap on the other shoulder of the volunteer for moral support? Oh ya, maybe he should help carry the girl too eventhough he doesnt need to just to show ppl he care? You care from the bottom of ur heart, you dont do unneccesary thing to win the heart of crowd. Grow up!

Unregistered

Good idea, Kenny sia should just save the photos in his PC and write a diary instead. He does not even have to blog it at all, since it is that personal to him and no one else should comment about it?
If you cant take comments, don't even blog it and allow people to comment on the blog.
Yeh he should just care from the bottom of his heart and keep snapping photos. Obviously that's what he does best.
Thanks for the guide.

From now onwards, we shld all just care from out hearts and not lift any fingers to help or even snap pictures.
And next, we must blog it to the world that we cared from our heart so that other people will know that deep down within you, you cared.

Unregistered

God, please open the eyes of those are reading the blog now. Its is not the matter of why snapping photos, why not helping, who is right and who is wrong. Its the matter of, those who is survived or not. Please comfort the family of the lost. Please take care of them and strengthen them. With this blog, these pictures, we all get to understand how bad the situation was. Without the pictures and information and the comments here, we all dont know what had happenned, its could be "just another accident". Now, all we can do is pray for those didnt understand why the pictures are here, so that they have the wisdom to understand the situation of Kenny and the victims of the accident. May god bless everyone who read this and those are "unable" to read this. Kenny, be strong and dont take it too seriously. Take care everyone. I really felt bad for what had happenned.

dont you understand simple english that he offered help? its not like he did nothing except taking picture. THe point is there is nothing more he could do. for goodness sake please stop being so ignorant and calm down and THINK!

kenny, i like you. but i hated your actions.

that was really insensitive.

Unregistered

I don't really understand why so many people are criticizing Kenny here...

Let's all be frank. If we were in his situation, we would either be so freaked out that we might need help, or just looking on doing nothing. At least Kenny did something. At least the dude managed to help those people. And he is still feeling bad about it.

As for the photo's, it's up to him as to take them or not. As far as I can see, the pictures are not offensive and in fact, this entry has garnered more following than what is written about it in the papers.

If it wasn't for this entry, ya'll probably would write this off as just another accident and wouldn't give 2 sens as to what happened to those people involved. At least people now are concerned...

So come on la... Stop flaming the dude...

Unregistered

TO: John Stu, Kenny & all those that actively have their points and reasonings.

Guys, I think the arguement has gone beyond its main topic already. In the end of the day, many lives were lost, lesson should be learned and feelings were tossed around with statements and accusations.

But I feel, enough is enough, dont you think? Kenny doesnt feel good about this post & ive sure it'll be one that will stay in his mind for days to come. When u assist in an accident especially one where lives are lost, it just doesnt go away that easily. The sight of the crash, the debris, the blood, the lifeless bodies and those fighting to survive. It will always be in Kenny's mind. I feel to begin with, it wasnt his fault to be there. He wasn't the lorry driver or directly involved in the accident. He was innocent.

Let things be. Let it all go. For those who really care for the victims and also the little girl who passed away in the hospital, I propose that you respect them, respect their families and lend a helping hand by givinge a moment of silence and let this issue rest along with the family that was lost tragically today.

Bare in mind that these happens day in & day out. Lives are lost every other second. What has happened im pretty sure noone reading would have wished it to occured especially Kenny. Let's now be extra vigilant and whenever we're on the road, let this be a reminder that life is our most valueable asset.

To the family & victims and to the readers and truly feel for this unfortunate incident, be at peace. To Kenny, this will be one hard experience for you. Feel no anger, feel no guilt. Let it rest too.

Unregistered

I agree with what Kenny was doing on the spot... It's better to see how bad the accident was rather than hearing it from people.... And yea, I would've been dumbstruck if I were in Kenny's situation... ='(

Unregistered

firstly, i would like to forward my deepest sympathies to those who perished in the accident.
some of us here are more worried about 'whether it was allright for kenny to take pictures' than to actually think of the message of these photos.

with slightly gruesome pics at hand, i'd have to say, it would bring an impact to most of us, to remind us to drive carefully in the near future and such. for that i thank you.

i guess the prominence of ur blog has sparked jealousy amongst others, and well, it's not surprising. such is the price of fame, i'd say. let it be, and i hope u'll recover from all this.

keep on blogging, and be strong!

Unregistered

he just trying to give every1 remember drive carefully, although just have a accident, we don't hope will have other kind accident again..maybe after u c this post, u will drive carefully n always got this in ur mind, kenny, u r rite, n this type serious accident, even u know 1st aid.. u oso cant help ... only the professional can do 1st aid on the victim, its true, even u r scout or st.john, u oso cannot give them 1st aid,.. n bomba not there.. u cannot pull them out oso ... maybe can try to settle the traffic over there....to make sure the ambulance n bomba can come asap, taking pic.. n let u all c is.. maybe remind u all drive carefull.. once accident not oni the DRIVER involve.. the PASSANGER oso will involve..

DRIVE SAFELY

a horrifying accident happened and all some humans can do is to argue over a few photo snapped on the scene? isnt there something more important for us as humans to put our thoughts into when such things occured? like how can WE do better (for those who think kenny din do enough) if we ever meet with such a situation and for others, what else can we do if we meet with other accidents..

After reading the entry, I could only sit back against the chair in wordless shock, the images swimming in my mind. May the lady and the children be in a happy and safe place. My prayer goes to the little girl and to the family.

I am sorry that you have had to witness this traumatising tragedy. :(

Registered

Such tragedy. I will not comment on your photos, as you have your points and your oppositions have theirs.

Kenny, I believe you must be rather traumatised yourself. Do realise it's okay to feel what you are feeling now.

Seek professional help if you need. Witnessing such a traumatic scene has adverse effects on adults and children alike.

I am also truly sorry that you couldn't have done more but I think it's time to let go and move on.

Unregistered

I think Kenny should do everyone a good favor by removing this (I mean only this) blog and all the pictures (of this blog) to show respect to the victim. that is the least u could do.

Unregistered

kenny, u have done all u could have done for the victims. i'm sure kenny isn't feeling very good himself, for all these reactions caused. but everyone seems to have got off topic now. everybody is talking about the photos, not the victims. be considerate, people.

my condolences to the victims' family.

Unregistered

First of all, my sincere condolences to the family of the deceased. Second of all, I hope Kenny is OK post-trauma, especially after all the malicious flaming.

I have had loved ones pass away in road accidents. It is never an easy experience to have to deal with.

I personally feel that with the family's consent, the pictures on this blog will serve as a grim reminder of the fragility of life and the dangers of speeding / getting distracted on the road. Most readers are between 18-30, I believe.

Please drive safely.

Unregistered

We should not comment on what kenny should do. If Condolence to the victims' family. :( Well, if we expect everyone to follow what we think should be done. You are just carrying anger and upset feelings in you, which is stupid. Rather, if you do not insist people following your SHOULD do, you will feel better and happier which is a wiser option. It is kenny's blog world, we can personally analyse whether it is proper or not to have done so, but we should not insist him to follow what we think that SHOULD be done.

Unregistered

I'm also very sorry to hear that the little girl didn't make it. Heartfelt condolences and prayer goes out to the family.

There is a lot for us to learn from this tragedy, and how people react to it.

Unregistered

Stop saying that Kenny should not take pictures la. I mean if you were in his shoes, you probably just drive pass, stop for a while, create a small traffic jam then leave the place. Who would actually stop their car, come down to offer helps? So please, stop acting as though you are such an angel and stuff. There's nothing anyone can do because most of the victims were dead.

Seriously, ask yourself, would you even stop your car to come down and lend a hand. Then, only start commenting.

Unregistered

I hope those that survived are doing okay, and my condolences go out to the family of the victim(s).

Sure Kenny could've just posted a blog entry with no pictures describing the car accident, but like someone said earlier pictures say a thousand words. Maybe these pictures will remind people of what could become of them by driving errantly (which seems to be pretty prevalent on Malaysia roads).

It's an unfortunate incident, and if these pictures help other drivers drive even a little bit safer, they served their purpose.

Unregistered

It is nobody's right to define what's morally right or wrong. Taking photographs at accident scenes, whether morally sound or otherwise, is as much controversial as abortion or euthanasia.

Some newspapers publish gruesome accident pics everyday for the nation to see. Would that have been considered disrespectful to the victims' families? Or would you have in mind that because of a blogger posting it, it would then change the whole dynamics into being a ridicule? If so, are there any strong evidence of a ridicule (including showing the faces of those victims)?
Criticizing on the grounds that taking photos at accident scenes and posting it publicly is wrong, is strictly subjective.

Whether Kenny did enough to help, who are we to judge? Are you sure you would have offered more help than him given a similar situation? Are you sure that any random guy out there would have done better than him in this situation?

It is a personal blog after all. Unless there's a law prohibiting this, the pics n entry need not go.

Aiya, just read the blog and shuutupp. Bloody idiots complain about everything. So what if kennysia took pictures of the scene? Didn't it give all of us a better picture of what happened? Satisfy our natural human curiosity?

All you facqers complaining about the photos should just admit you're jealous of kennysia's popularity. Don't be mad at kennysia just because nobody reads your pathetic blogs (no photos)

And if you complain some more about photos, just go fac yourselves. Maybe that will hit some common sense to your frail minds. Idiots!!

As one of the commentators said, you guys are picking on him just because he is Kennysia.

This is true. There was a nobody who posted photos of the Subang Parade Poh Kong shoot out victims, like up close shots. Barely a meter away from the deceased. You could even see the hole in the forehead where the bullet went through.

You know what people said, "Wah!! Terrer la you... even got time to take photos!"

but not a single hate comment. (or maybe some might have accumulated, but up to nearly a week, the blog was still unflamed.)

Kenny didn't do anything wrong. He knew it was insensitive to take photos of the victims but of the wreckage, I'm sure he thought it through and through.

But I'd like to thank Kenny for putting up this photos which serves as a reminder to us to treasure our lives and becareful on the roads.

wahlaooo... people who are bashing kenny,
you people so super know how to check for spinal injury on the scene kar??? know how to check for internal bleeding kar??know how check for neck trauma???...basic first aid is BASIC first aid...if u know how to diagnose spinal injury and internal bleeding u'll probably need a MD behind your name and will probably need a MRI's and a few CAT scans to diagnose it...

posting this up means people will know about it...and people will talk about it...i.e spreading the word, so other people will be more careful.And to send condolences to the families involved.

Also people who are concerned about the ethical issue of snapping photos, sounds like they didn't even read the part where people die, did you at any time offer any kind of support for the family,a condolence maybe???i doubt it??as for the "why should i support this particular case debate?" i ask you this question why you are making such a fuss over THIS particular case???you might as well trash the red cross and say why should i support this particular foundation who helps millions of people.

as for the person who said kenny's rich and should support the family privately,you are SELFISH to the max dude,just coz u don't want to donate say "i don't want to donate lar"

As for people who think journalist tells a better recollection of what's happened, well erm... last time i check they are also human who write the stories in their own view,(I'm sure if go to places of war and watch the local news they would show the news in the reporters point of view....i.e probably contradictory to our own),++they weren't there on the scene.It's like asking you to write a story on the scenery in greenland without you even going there b4.

here's a question in regards to the guy with the helmet carrying the girl....How many people does it take to carry a girl???just one(maybe two)...and how many people were on the scene trying to help 20 odd people...ever heard of too many cooks ruin a soup....same concept lar...stop bashing one person, he superman kar???he HOUSE MD kar??anyone one grey's anatomy issit??

oh and pictures are important to any investigation,do you know how hard issit to calculate momentum, impulse changes in kinetic and potential energy and all the other investigation things when the car has been changed by the authorities trying to get the people out???


P.S condolences to the families involved and anyone who witnessed the horrific incident.
PPS Stop bashing people and show some compassion to those involved.

I read your blog often, but i have very rarely commented.

Dont get yourself down with what people say to you about snapping pictures. It isnt like you just took pictures without helping, but took pictures as there wasnt anything else to do.I think that the criticism directed at you is wrong.

You blogging about this will make us ALL much more aware about driving safely as shit happens. i personally will drive much more carefully next time.

Kenny, I myself had witness an accident in which a cargo truck hit a motorcylist (with a pillion rider). The truck was moving quite fast but veered to the right side to try avoid hitting the motorcyclist, but to no avail.

Should the truck veered to the left side, it would have hit the car I'm travelling in instead.

I was so shocked...and went blank. Until today, the image of the lifeless body of the pillion rider haunted me and I shivered everytime I passed the junction..

I just want to say, I know how it feels...

the best part of reading kennysia's blog is when there are contradiction in the comment part, where everyone start to argue who is right and wrong. writing long essays to support their arguements. as if everyone is doing an assignment given by their lecturer about the ethics.

My condolences to the family, may they rest in peace.

Hi Kenny:
Don't let the negative comments bring you down,I think they commented just because you are Kenny Sia!The most popular and the best blogger in M'sia!

I think you should remove the photos as a sign of respect for the victim's family.

Unregistered

If you had just put one or two pics, you'd have driven the point home about reckless driving and nobody will tear you apart like this but no, you gave a series of pics, like your Kinabalu climb, starting from impact to discovery of bodies to heroic acts and so on and you have the gall to declare nobody else but YOU did anything, like a self-righteous preacher. You've exposed your egotistical tail, but of course that's not surprising b/c why else do you tell the world about your boring life?

Btw, very good phone camera there, despite ur shaking. What make n model u using?

Unregistered

Fantastic, all of you just managed to generate a huge spike of traffic to kennysia.com, increased his popularity oh...and maybe revenue as well.

He is either very smart or very immature. Controversy sells.

Thanks whatever god that there is still people around that doesn't hail blindly to Kenny as an idol or role model. Kudos to John Stu, nicely said. I couldn't have done better.

Please, most people don't give crap about his popularity. Being famous doesn't exactly give him immunity and it doesn't make him right all the time either.

I agree with John Stu, Qi and Infectioner.
Kenny - at least now you know this posting has attracted 400+ comments - this is an achievement in itself?

More sensitivity should be displayed, I don't think Kenny is a 'bad' person - he should have displayed more tact and understanding.

And all you 'KennySia' fans out there - for goodness sake, calm down and THINK. Don't just jump onto the support bandwagon or say things just to make someone feel better...

yea yea.. man .. its all kenny's fault.. eh can i suggest you guys go to a photo forum like velocity-media.net\forums, ? i think i saw.. like erm.. countless pictures of accidents there, are you saying that all those ppl are also heartless? to take pictures? hey perhaps those ppl taking pics in warzones should sell off their kick ass expensive camera's and use the money for the poor kids there huh?

Unregistered

Do you see any deliberately sensationalized pictures in here? Do you see gore dripping from bodies like in the chinese newspapers?

No you do not.

Quite frankly, I think most of the outcry here against Kenny is a load of thrash talk by people who have nothing better to do than act self righteous.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of his, but the way you idiots are railing at him for his actions disgusts me.

And I bet there are even those who considered stealing these pics and claiming it as their own.

It's his blog, why shouldn't he post something which happened in his daily life? Don't preach to me about tact either, because from what I've read from a majority of these garbled comments, most of you don't have the faintest clue.

Even if it reached out and slapped you in the face.


Unregistered

geez you guys, stop it. he did his best trying to help as compared to most of you that will just drive away. taking photos isn't something bad. go and scold all the reporters and photographers if you are offended by photo publishing act. dont google any image as they will offend you anyway and pls don read any article that contain photograph. childish idiots.

I don't think there is a need for Kenny Sia to try and explain or rationalise his actions anymore. People who are leaving negative comments are simply making personal attacks at him. The fact is Kenny Sia stopped to help and stayed to leave his statement. If every bystander were to leave the scene, the police would not be able to investigate the matter.

yarn, you seriously think the police will investigate this accident? if so PDRM will be the best police force in the world lo....kenny stay just to take pictures and be a busybody bitch just like everyone else there...hoping to get interviewed by tv3 or star.

Kenny did his best already...I don't know what I would do if I was there...I'd probably be too traumatized to do anything...My mind would have probably gone blank...All of you who are condemning Kenny for not doing enough, what else could you have done? More harm?

It really is such a tragedy...Tears swelled up in my eyes as I read the entry and saw the pictures...I guess we really should try our best to be more careful and patient on the road...Especially when we have children in the car...The lives of others are in your hands...and this incident is even more so tragic as it was the driver's own children...I am always a more cautious driver when my little brother is in the car with me...

boob_omatic: I think your comment is really insensitive...Sure the driver was wrong but they've already lost their lives and you can still bring yourself to say something like that...We all get impatient on the road sometimes...We all make mistakes...What if this happened to someone you knew or to a loved one of yours? Would you still say the same thing? Gosh really!

The whole Kenny-Sia-shouldn't-have-take-pics debate: I think Kenny was only trying to remind us to be more careful on the road especially when we're driving with our loved ones and children...And pictures do speak a thousand words...The pics create a greater impact and show us the seriousness of the consequences of being impatient on the road and drives home the message...plus I think the entry is also his way of trying to reach the family of the victims...

It really breaks my heart to think of the children who passed away in the tragedy...May God Bless and Heal the little girl and give her the strength to survive...

I lost 3 friends in an accident in Subang recently,

To all the kenny's 'yes'men

If any of your family members died from tragedies and accidents, you call Kenny up right away ok?

He will dash right up to your place, snaps snaps snaps and put them on blog before the reporters do.

So he is a hero. He happened to be at the crash site, he helps, stop, snaps, helps, stop, snaps.

Just think la.. what on earth was he thinking when he was snapping those photos if not for the benefit of this blog?


In another words, shouldnt we say Kenny took those pictures and put them up mostly, if not solely for the benefit for himself to generate positive viewership? To enhance his presence in the blogosphere? To create a buzz around his name? So that to translate those intangible fames he already has on web, to real life so that so make them more keenly felt? Say... on national television maybe?

Viewership does go stagnant if you do not have something to stir it up once in a while, no?



On a marketing point of view, this is a reasonable deduction. Subconciously, he is generating hits to his site. Oh yes, he is an opportunist alright.

people are given a choice to blog what they want and read what they want. please stop criticising kenny. if you think you can do a better job at helping the society, then why is it i don't see you people helping out at old folk's home or at the orphanage? why aren't you helping out by rehoming the homeless abandoned cats and dogs that are straying on the streets and being cruelly treated? why aren't you in volunteer teams helping out with the natural disasters? please stop talking big and criticising other people without first looking at yourself as a person wasting the world's precious oxygen and our country's limited resources.

if you think you're so great and can do a better job at making the world better by blogging, go ahead and let us know when you make it, coz by then i'd most probably be busy cleaning out my dentures and washing my grandma underwears.

Hi kenny,

My deepest condolence to the victims family. Hope you recover from the trauma. I'm saddened to what can happen when we do not take the right step in driving. Wished that the driver could be more patient.
Hope everyone learnt a lesson from this entry. It's a good entry to remind everyone that life could be just over for our own carelessness...
Dun blame kenny for taking that pictures.. I might have done tat too if i were in his place at that time. This whole entry make me speechless and to care about the loves one around me.

Take care everyone!

-------------------------------------------------
For any of you who are interested here is an excerpt from NPPA (National Press Photographers Association)Code of ethics. Read point 4.

-------------------------------------------------
Photojournalists and those who manage visual news productions are accountable for upholding the following standards in their daily work:
1 Be accurate and comprehensive in the representation of subjects.
2 Resist being manipulated by staged photo opportunities.
3 Be complete and provide context when photographing or recording subjects. Avoid stereotyping individuals and groups. Recognize and work to avoid presenting one's own biases in the work.
4 Treat all subjects with respect and dignity. Give special consideration to vulnerable subjects and compassion to victims of crime or tragedy. Intrude on private moments of grief only when the public has an overriding and justifiable need to see.
5 While photographing subjects do not intentionally contribute to, alter, or seek to alter or influence events.
6 Editing should maintain the integrity of the photographic images' content and context. Do not manipulate images or add or alter sound in any way that can mislead viewers or misrepresent subjects.
7 Do not pay sources or subjects or reward them materially for information or participation.
8 Do not accept gifts, favors, or compensation from those who might seek to influence coverage.
9 Do not intentionally sabotage the efforts of other journalists.
-------------------------------------------------

Does the public has a justifiable need to see this? We have on average 20-50 fatal accidents a day. It is already an well know fact that recklessness, poor judgment and speed kills.

Condolences for the victim's family. I don't know what else to say to the victims.

Kenny, if possible, have an update about the surviving little girl.

Side note:
Where are the concern for the victims?
How come so many moral police who are more bothered about the anonymous photos than about the surviving little girl?
Is this the real Malaysian attitude?

"I bet half of you guys who complained about Kenny taking the photo didn't even bother to read Kenny's explanation.

He himself is a professional blogger, taking photos to further let us readers visualize the scene wasn't wrong.

....."

Yes, we read his explanation. But that is not the point.

Apparently you not thinking either. Let me ask, what guidelines do you use when classifying bloggers as professional?

Unregistered

Hey Kenny,

I think you have done the right thing by not moving the injured from the vehicle unless there is an imminent danger of fire or explosion. Who knows, you may cause more damage by doing so but tend to the injured if you could.

By looking at the photos, airbags would have done nothing to save the driver from such a horrendous crash. What Malaysians such be educated about is the use of seat belts for all passengers and also child car seats. These safety components save lives! Slow down, speed kills.

The rest of the people shouldn't be too hard on Kenny about taking photos. These could serve as important evidence for recreation of the accident scene. What if you were in an accident and there were no collaborating evidence you were deemed guilt of the cause?

Enough said. Bless those departed souls and Kenny I hope that you are not too traumatized by this accident. Seek help if you are.

Unregistered

Seriously, just stop pointing fingers at Kenny. He did nothing wrong and he tried his best to do everything he could. I believe his sole motive was only to remind everyone to drive safely.

Whatever done is done. Why don't we just pray for those poor souls who have departed rather than pointing finger at the wrong person.

Unregistered

Many of us like to say what could have been done or should have been done but more often than not, unless you've been put into the exact same situation, you can by no means really comprehend what one's going through.
Emotional trauma is no shit. Be well Kenny:)

From a purely trained first-aider and some sound background knowledge point of view, yes, so what if you've received first aid training, you're no god. First aiders have very limited help to offer in serious injuries. One of the basic principles of first aid is to identify the situation, analyse and do no harm. If you're not sure, don't do it.
As has been pointed out earlier, with a crash like this, moving the victims is not an ideal thing to do. You could just possibly kill a potential survivor instead of saving one's life. Certainly, many would see the act of carrying the girl as the most appropriate thing to do, but like what a previous reader commented, the way she's been carried could easily kill the girl.

FYI, don't know how many ppl actually know this but if you happen to come across an emergency at a place thats out of your mobile provider's coverage, dial 112 and you will be connected to other available network and directed to the local emergency center, even if you're overseas. So remember it's not the end of the world if your mobile has no coverage as long as you have your mobile with you..well, GSM mobiles.

It is perhaps the flaw of the country's medical system for an ambulance to actually take 45 minutes to arrive, judging by the place reported - i believe you don't need that amount of time from GH. 45 minutes can take one to Damai already!

Unregistered

daamn.. my deepest condolences..

Comment box is for people to comment. You can type whatever you want. I totally agree.

I saw all the comments and a lot of people asked:

If one of your family members is in an accident, how will you feel if you saw these pictures of the accident on some random blog?

My ans: I seriously don't care where it appears. After all, when it is printed out in the newspaper,reported on tv with videos and images, thousands of people will know. Even age, name, etc. And more importantly, the pain of losing someone is far greater than something as tiny as some photos appearing in a random blog.

Why is the motorist carrying the girl and Kenny busy snapping photos?

My ans: I don't know about Kenny.But I feel gross and scared to carry that girl because, what if she dies in my hands? What if the major cause of her dying is because I moved her? Then I will feel guilty forever. I admit Im a coward. But how many people can be as courageous as the motorist? At least I know all the 20 over onlookers including Kenny are cowards too. And people may say, if you don't attempt to save her, won't you feel guilty too? I will feel sad not guilty because at least I know clearly Im not the one who caused her death. The accident caused it and nobody can prevent that. I am not a doctor too. I can't save her even if I very much want to.

He snaps photos and put them up is just because he wants to share his traumatic experience with us. I don't think he will get good money out of it. And so what if his viewership has gone up with so many people bashing him? That is just worthless if he really wants to gain publicity, fame, money etc.

However, Kenny, I disagree the comment of people who ought to be shameful if they do not donate or call to find out about the situation. Though I feel sad for them, they are not my family or someone I know. I agree that everyday there are accidents happening and it is really not something shameful that we do not do anything to help out. Im sure you do not look at the newspaper everyday just to find out who are the people who got into accidents and then donate to them or pay visits etc.

And about Kenny publicising that he is very helpful, I just feel that this is triggerd by the negative comments.No intention of publicising or getting an award out of it.

Just saying how I feel and not intending to say who is right or wrong. It is just a pointless argument because so what if Kenny is disrespectful? or so what if he is a saint? Nothing changes in this world and the fact that all died in that tragic accident.

Unregistered

Condolences to the family.

I dont blame you kenny, any one of us would be as shock as you if in this kind of situation.

Unregistered

I disagree with those who assume that much controversy has been generated over the photos only because he is kenny sia. In fact, if it wasn't him posting this entry, i believe the pictures would receive more criticism.

While kenny has done a good job lending a helping hand the best he knew how, providing too many details about his efforts has made it seem like he is simply fishing for compliments. Sure, if it weren't for him it could have taken much longer to reach the police, but emphasizing it so greatly is unnecessary.

Also, who is he to put a label on people who should be ashamed of themselves just because they choose not to pledge a donation? Countless could see the severity of the accident and not donate for their own reasons, why put them down? The most we can do is just appeal for aid, but if turned down we should just be respectful.

I understand kenny is trying to remind us of the dangers of driving, and he has done so, but the thought of him snapping away while at the scene is just sad. I am aware that the helpless passerbys had nothing to do while waiting for help but taking numerous pictures is just sick.

Firstly did u get e message of driving carefully? A picture speak a thousand words, i got the message it hit me right into my heart.

Secondly, y point finger at others n what make u so superior to judge a person. A theory is always a theory, we are humun afterall. And what is right? A majority in e votes? Then the votes make u wrong.

Some people have no life
If you think this is wrong and you can do better THEN WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING HERE IN HIS BLOG? No wonder 'some guy' ending up driving an ambulance rather than a doctor.

Unregistered

I think most of you should think how to make sure that you yourself didn't ended up like the victims instead of bashing kenny around right? Seriously, he DID explained about the photos. He took them AFTER he calmed down. Personally, I think he didn't do anything wrong as he didn't post the dead bodies pictures. Stamp the accident pictures in your brain cells so that you'll know what might happened if you drive carelessly.
Normal human being would be totally shock & don't know what to do after seeing a freak accident. You guys obvious haven't seen dead bodies + blood + wracked car before, don't you? You'll be traumatized like shit.

Condolences to the family & may their souls R.I.P.

I dont know why is it so hard to understand.

If your mum got killed in an accident, you go call Kenny and straight away he will fly to where you lives, snap pictures and blog about it ok? You like it that way?

He helps out, and thats great. But problem is his rationality eludes me when he helps, stops, snaps, helps, stops, snaps. Even a reporter will subconciously tells you he did it for a paycheck.

While it is great to help out, there is no denying he did it also for the benefit of himself, his blog. To generate hits, to have potential monetary gains.

He did it to create a stir. Just like he did it with that christmas post 2 years ago, he puts on a controversy post to attract comments & viewerships. Why else you think LG will advertise their 'chocolate' here?

There is a potential monetary gain if you could attract hundred thousands pair of eyes to your site everyday. In months to come, I wont surprise to see more brands to advertise here.

Why couldnt he just help out and thats it? What is it in his mind the moment you took out his camera phone from his pocket if not potential monetary gains?

If Kenny were to post up some lewd jokes and attract tons of comments, and potential monetary gains, that i am ok with it. In fact, those were what brought him fame years back. ANd that is what he should be doing!! But not this one.

There were over 400 comments posted, and half if not most of the comments were questioning your intention the moment you took out your camera phone. It is an obvious attack.

I think I will have more respect for Kenny if he apologizes. I will have even more respect for him if he admits the photgraphs he took partly for potential monetary gain.

In context to the fuss of photo taking, the impact of a message will hardly bring about any effect without the photos. If you try to get across the message to a wide audience about the consequence of speeding or anything like that, you use photos, which is one of the best ways to get a message across. Donations don’t go to war torn countries within the effects of the photos, which tell a story far greater than words can convey. Not many people would have understood the emotions Kenny have gone through with just words.

Unregistered

been Kenny's fan for a long time until this post that i disagree with what he did.

once a photographer in africa comes across a girl dying in the livelss land with a hawk waiting for its meals. he took a picture of it, chase away the hawk and left the place. he then won a big prize for that picture. but he committed suicide years after - his conscience ate him alive for he didnt help the little girl.

issues is, his intention of taking those photos.

for himself? or for mankind?

sure Kenny did something good, by calling an ambulance and trying to direct traffic. but the photo snapping part still puzzles me - not that you shouldnt. but the fact that you took so many photo in so many GOOD angles? Kenny, if you are a reporter i would say you are a good reporter. and yes police dont need that photo from you. not that many anyway.

fact that nothing else you could do (as you have done all you could) doesnt means you could go around and snap photos.

if there is just a photo or two, then Kenny you still have my support. but when there is too many (with DAMN GOOD ANGLE i must admit), i am speechless.

and your defensive come back just made you look worse - "i am already a hero by doing so much. you nameless people probably cant do as much". yeah we might be able to do only a thing or two. but we wont take so many pictures to show people around.

call me a chicken as you like. i am ashamed by you.

Unregistered

The photographer in Africa carried the girl to a shelter after the photo-taking incident. However, without that one photo, not many of us could have truly understood what was happening in that country. If that photographer stayed on to become a volunteer there selflessly, he would still have been considered a greater person, but then he would one of the many who already made contributions and disappears quietly when he dies. One person can only do so much, but it is a totally different matter when you brought the world to your attention with what was posted. People sat up and took notice, and the situation was immediately understood.
In terms of photo-taking, you would tend to capture better images faster within a shorter period of time when you have prior experience in that field. Kenny has a wide-readership, it is improbable that he did not take the photo partly out of self-interest. However, what is important in this message is that it did captured the attention of a wide audience, and it told the story.

Unregistered

At this point in time, i tink everyone, whether positive or negative, are either repeating the same thing in different ways or bashing at at each other.

Maybe it's time to stop.

I do not agree with this blog and the pictures but it's obvious that kenny sia will not be deleting this post as it is bringing in so many viewers.

It's a weekend , go out and have fun and forget about kenny sia.

HELLO PEOPLEEEEEEE.. wakeee upp!

There are many people dying from many wars and they include children and women. They die from no fault of their own and yet we switch channels when we see them on the news....

HEREEEEE.... the mom practically killed herself (and her kids).. plus she is really careless to overtake in a one lane each, two way road....

sooo yeah, some of you saw this first hand so wooo hoo it made u relate to it but please remember, there are people dying as we speak in ways worse than this, its just that it has become old news for us and we became terribly insensitive....

whatever it is, im not going to pretend im self-righteous or that i feel so sad blah blah because i am not a hypocrite and i feel that my sadness could be directed to other issues the world is facing, not just another car accident.

What goes around comes around.

Whether his intention was good or bad,time will tell.

Unregistered

When i first saw your entry, i also thought, WTH man, still got time to take foto! Why never go and help!
And it does seem a little contrived to say it is all in the good of the victims.

Until i read all your comments.

It must have been traumatising to realise how immacutely linked life and death is.
And these photos do serve to remind us that.

However, i still don't agree with the photos. At least not a whole film reel of them.

Much blessings and prayers.

Its normal for a normal 1st aider to be in shock when it comes to situation like this. However, it is very advisable not to carry the victim as we do not know whether he/she has internal injuries or spinal cord injury which may paralyse her.But if he/she is able to walk with abit of help, you may send him/her to the nearest clinic or hospital with own vehicle. If you do know the correct way of carrying and confident, good, go ahead. But if you are not, do not make situation worse. Please correct me if I am wrong.Its my 1st aid knowledge that i have gained after attending few courses for the past 5 years. Just wana share:)

Unregistered

hey kenny,

if, like you say, you really care bout the victims in the accidents, then obviously you'd TAKE DOWN THE FUCKING PICTURES by now.


seeing as how they're still up there i can only guess that:

i) you actually don't care bout the victims

ii) you like the blog traffic

iii) you get some twisted pleasure in watchin ppl arguin on ur blog


iv) you're a dick


(...yeah just added the last one for fun)

Unregistered

wow. that's a lot of comments.

first of, it was really tragic to hear of such news. i can actually relate to that as my friends were involved in a highway accident not too long ago too. the feeling of not being able to do anything when clearly your friend- who's lying unconcious in the ICU ward- needs you. the feeling is just plain ridiculous...and real. and painful.

my condolneces to the family of this accident's victims, as well as to the many others who falls prey to the road stats.

now that i've gotten that out, i would like to return my attention to the fact that this post has garnered so many comments.
whether he intended it as such (which i personally, sincerely doubt it), kenny is currently recently lots of publicity over this issue, the good and the bad.

and all you self-righteous people out there, slapping kenny with accusations of such and such...don't you see...you are the ones helping him achieve his goals (let's assume for now that all kenny wants is fame and world domination). YOU are the one making such public outcry, over and over again. you are contradicting your own stand.

however, did kenny break any rules in doing so?
it is, afterall, his blog.
he can be a really bad and nasty piece of $hit, or an angel under guise...but this is his blog, where he's entitled to his thoughts and actions (as restricted by the rules/law/act/etc). if you don't like him, you are also entitled to voice your own thoughts, and perhaps never to visit this blog again?

i don't know, but i think everyone's blowing this whole thing out of proportion.

but i don't think kenny did anything wrong.
perhaps he was desperate for more hits. nothing wrong there. he didn't exactly drive that truck that crashed into the car. he was there to help.

perhaps he was insensitive and a natural b*tch.
but he stopped. he did all he could. he phoned the ambulance. he helped direct traffic. yeah, i guess you could say he was nasty for not going back to office early to work. -_-"

perhaps he was just trying to relate to us the emotions he was feeling then, and how best to do it, but use pictures.
he did nothing wrong there either.

Unregistered

You're seriously sick. You took photographs?

Don't use that BS line that it could be used for "police evidence". What more do the police need than seeing what they have before them?

What if her family reads this? They will see the awful photos of her crash, and they will also know she did it.

Words can't describe how DISGUSTING you are. You are shameless. Exploiting the DEATH of someone else to get hits on your pathetic website.

Me again.

On the fifth photo, you can see little legs peeking out. If it wasn't for that one I would have assumed the best and that you had the decency to wait until all the bodies were taken away before you started taking photos.

You have no respect for this family Kenny.

A simple blog explaining the situation, and perhaps a photo of the glass on the ground and link to the newspaper story will be enough.

I will contact the hospital but not just to send my condolences, but to let them know that a cold hearted blogger has put photos of the crash up on his site. Including one of their dead child.

Don't pretend to be a hero begging for people's help because that one photo of the little child's legs shows enough about your cold soul to know that you don't really care.
You seriously make me sick.

First time commenting here..though am avid Kennysia.com reader. I think that a blog is to jot down personal accounts..you write what you see...you put images of it so it may remind you over and over again that fateful day of what you have seen. Kenny is doing what he had been doing for the past 2-3 years since he start this blog.. He blogged...he put images together with it so his reader can somehow relate or get a better sense of what he wished to convey. Somehow, i think it is already cultured in his nature or instinct that gives him tendency to snap away those photos given that certain situation./event. I do believe that he do wish to let this incident (accident) known to as much people as possible..but not for personal gain.. but to somehow bring sense to other people to help the girl who is in critical danger. I imagined him traumatised from the event..and feeling hopeless and i think he would have wished he could have done more...thus...it was his intention to make up for the thing, he blog it here so people would be aware and could actually lend a hand..

So, instead of critisizing him.. I think we should thanked him for this awareness and focus on helping the girl...

Think of it..if it wasn't for Kenny..i doubt half or even 80% of who have commented good or bad would know about this accident..

So give the bashing a rest aights..be supportive.. no good comes from constant hatred...

The bible say.. Love your family, friends and neighbours...and better yet..love your enemy as well..

May the Victims rest in peace..and Peace to all!

The fact that all the photo is still here proves that Kenny is enjoying the publicity of everyone who commented. He has achieved his goal, winning all the popularity he wanted by taking all the shots at the accident.All 9 of them.

thespian: "What's wrong about this is that you're posting pictures of dead people on the road, in an accident and claiming you're sorry." For one thing, Kenny Sia did NOT take pictures of dead people. And taking photos of the scene of accident does not mean he does not feel sorry for the casualties.


For another, he "offered to help by calling the emergency number." This is the safest, and the best, thing he could have done to help. When kenny said "he did not know what to do", he probably meant that he did not know how to go about giving actual help to the victims since he is not a trained medic.


By taking photos, he is portraying the severity of the accident for us to witness. He is also conveying to us the emotions he felt then, through pictures.

To Kenny's critics, you're doing a great job in helping Kenny boost his publicity even more by creating such a fuss. In that case, he will have to thank you for helping him achieve his "aim" then.

Unregistered

gruesome accident indeed. and totally heart felt. taking the photos for the police is a good deed but posting them up do not support the fact. it is dreadful to see a kid lying dead inside the car. plz if u wanna help dont put up those dreadful pics. u could at least called up the hospital and asked for the kid's condition instead of reading it from d papers if u reli cared.

Unregistered

Kenny Sia for parliament!!

Unregistered

I have read enough of all these comments (indeed I never finished reading all of them) cause the arguments just go round and round. I think most people MISSED a very important point arguing whether Kenny should post the photo or not. He has the right to put up the photos but the victims or the victims' family member has the higher priority in the 'rights order'. Hence, what Kenny should have done in the first place is to ask for permission from the victim's family. He shouldn't have put up this entry so soon.

But then again, i can understand this is the first major accident that happened right in front of him, he probably still traumatized by it. Hence, it is natural to blog about it.

Fact: it is only normal to help call for help, anyone could've done that! I can't believe the many ppl who are praising him like he did something real heroic. read the post again. the guy only did two things: call n take pics, all over the place. i would've called, but to take pics of something of this nature would be beyond my conscience.
Fact: Kenny feels guilty taking those pictures b/c he says "sorry" and its not sorry they died, its an overall sorry , incl. his taking of the pics.
Fact: one pic tells a thousand words; so many pics tells us he did it to get a reaction. he knows he's wrong but he can't resist the publicity and gain he's getting!

firstly, there's nothing kenny could've done but call the emergency number. cos ONE, you must never never move a victim of a car accident or anything cos you might injure them like break their neck or something. i'm 15 and i know that.

and kenny taking photos. i don't find it insensitive. how bout those photographers who take photos at accident scenes ALL THE TIME. your not gonna call them insensitive, are you? why think of the negative effects when we can look at the positive? like kenny could be telling us to be more careful on the roads. why do we people always look at the bad side first? think about it.

sandra: yes, you shouldn't move the victims unless you are sure they don't have broken bones. This is very true and applicable in places like the US where their ambulance will always arrive within minutes. But for OUR case, sometimes it is not a bad idea at all to move the victim if we have concluded that's the best action to take. The victim is unconscious and the ambulance is not coming. I would carry the victim to the hospital myself if I know I can get there faster. There is no protocol (there never is!) in Malaysia what we (public) should do in case of emergency, especially during car accident. Minor or major. Just ask around, you will be amazed at all kind of answers you get!

Kenny,

This post & especially the photos of the accident has brought about negative reactions & comments from a lot of peolple.

Obviously it was a mistake to put it up esp the pics. My advice is to take the pics off your blog. Put pride aside. mistakes are made by everyone. People will respect you more if you do that.

Cheers.

Bless you Kenny, you did the right thing and if it was not for you, all of us would not know about this let alone the Police and the Emergency team.
You are very brave. I have gone thru one similar to this and was still shivering even after six months!
To the rest: Please understand this as it IS very traumatic to see all those fresh injuries and death.
Kenny, pls keep up the good work. You did the right thing.

Unregistered

I'm glad that these pictures were put up. I hope that it reminds us all to stick to the speed limit, keep a safe distance with the car in front of you, buckle up (yes... even sitting in the back seat), don't let your kids treat the car as a playground and not get distracted or angry while behind the wheel of a vehicle.

I live along that road (Jalan Batu Kawa-Matang). I see too many people doing all of the above everyday and paying for it with their lives or the lives of others. I too was there-but later. Everyone was distraught-including the cops, firefighters and civil defence medics. I think you get that when kids are involved.

It's not hard to understand why the police considers the car as a 'deadly weapon'. 'nuff said. Drive safe.

Unregistered

first of all, this is the first time i'm commenting here, though an avid follower of kennysia.com for the last few years.

i never thought of having a say in this blog until this post.

above all, condolences to the victims' family, i'm sure this is a very testing time for them, and god pray i only hope they can bury this tragedy deep down in a corner of their mind.

secondly, i thought kenny did everything he could to assist, that is enough. i don't think many people can boast to have given his best to help in a horrific accident. kenny's done well.

lastly, despite all these i don't think i'll be reading this blog anymore. the photos to be honest, is somewhat tasteless and although i don't condemn kenny for taking a few shots for police evidence or blogging purposes, whatever reasons, i sure do not wish to one day find out that my beloved ones are involved in an accident by seeing the photos posted here.

that, will kill what's left in my heart.

all the best, kenny, you're a great blogger, with just one less reader from today onwards.

Unregistered

Hi Kenny,

First and foremost condolences to the family. Second, may u be strong and get over this whole saga.

I have been a avid reader of your blog. Both for entertainment and interest.

Personally, I feel that while there could be nothing wrong taking photos, the words used to form your argument may have given the likes of those who are bashing you and kennysia.com, a very wrong impression. As the saying goes, the more you try to explain, the more complicated it gets. Which is generally true because pple who are already not happy, will pick and find everything that is not right to form a basis of argument to their advantage. There is always something to argue about in an explaination.

Jornalist over blogger. Job versus "not everyday incident". It is the job of a jornalist to photograph an incident he afterall is paid to do so. But maybe not so for a blogger. 1 or 2 photos to publish and document the incident may have been more than enough. Even in the newspapers, probably, i feel, they might not have had that many pictures used. Probably 1 or 2 which leaves the most impressions.

Nevertheless, given the circumstances you were in, you most probably have done more than most would have. Its upsetting to know that its difficult making people understand your point of view, but at the same time, do not degrade yourself to the likes of them but try to show more understanding to those who do not realise by putting yourself in their perspective as well.

There really isnt a wrong or right. Just a matter who which is of more priority. If unfortunately I was a close family member of the unfortunate incident, I would be pretty upset about whatever is written or shown in your blog. Similarly, I believe that you would be too. There might have been a better and more tactful way to do it.

Cheer up. Over this whole incident, everyone has much to learn. Not only trying to understand each others perspectives, the sensitivity of words, the need for explaination, the need to know when to stop critizing, the priorities, the open-mindedness, the art of forgiveness and compassion.

First, my condolences and prayers to the deceased.

Give peasants technology, and they will use it like peasants.

Malaysian's can't keep to topic. This was a post about a very tragic accident, and what has the comments section become? A full fledged debate by people who think they have a moral high ground.

I'm addressing to all those who want Kenny Sia to take this blog post down: come out with your REAL full name, your contact details, and debate like a civilised person, instead of being a person who only knows how to show ignoble fear, and hiding behind pseudonyms, which only show your lack of education and morals.

For godsake,can u all pls leave Kenny and the Photo issue alone?If u guys don't agree or like what he's doing,don't read his blog then.No one's pointing a gun to yr head and forcing u guys to read his blog.It's yr own choice.It's was his decision to take the photos and it's got nothing to do with self-promotion.Pls-lah people...don't judge him until he's worth less than 2 cent.He's just a normal human being going about doing his own thing.And pls don't use the F word.It's very rude.To Kenny,thank you for sharing this with us.To the rest,drive safely.

and you'd even had time to snap photos?? swt...

If you say so, Timothy.

My name is Jonathan Au, and I live in Subang. I say take the photos off the blog, and get the old kennysia back.

Haiz... ppl, juz think, think, think!!! Think, if u were him at that time, wat u will do. Stop for awhile, stop wat u wan to write in the comment n juz need to think, think.... think wat u will do, n wat u actual WILL do. Juz imagine u in the situation seeing a person not moving n got blood all over the victim, WHAT WILL U DO? i m sorry for the victims..
kennysia.com is a place where kenny share wat he think, feel, happy thing, sad thing.. or anything. So... this is wat he thinking, wat u care about??

Unregistered

I don't think there's a need fro Kenny to remove the pictures, this will serve as a public message to every Malaysian out there, even better than those simulations that was advertised on TV and radios because people tend to ignore it as everyone think those are just made up. For this one, this is for real, therefore it will act as a realistic public message to everyone out there who drive recklessly. Think of your innocent child and others as well.

No point arguing whether should Kenny take pics anot during the accident ...

Unregistered

yeah whats wrong with taking pics.

things can get SO out of hand..swt

Unregistered

wondering why ppl dont read the comments first before commenting. pls read the explaination from kenny's comment before bashing.

Unregistered

kenny's enjoyin the comments.

all i can say is this post made me realize how important it is for us to drive safely..thanks kenny sia.we luv u :)

Why are people keep telling Kenny to take down the photos and say that the victim's family will feel disrespectful when you all are not even the victim's family?

Half of you here do not feel disrespectful with the putting of pictures and what makes you guys so sure how the victim's family feels?

If you guys are really so keen in knowing how the victim's family feels, go and do an interview with them to find out exactly how they feel and post your interview up here for us to know.

Let us just stop assuming how the victim's family feels when we do not even know them ourselves.

For those of u who simply wrote comments w/out reading Kenny's comment & still asked the stupidest question / statemt of Y he took pics / he should help instead of take pics / he should take down pics / he did tat to gain popularity, u guys/gals just showed that u all are the mos ignorant bunch of jokers. Tot u guys/gals are saint ah, bashing ppl w/out knowing the facts? U all are the real jerks. I truely feel sad for u all.

those who have been commenting nasty stuff....u have no right 2 do so.

What would u have done in a similar situation?

Probably worse!

Stop talking cock n behaving as though kenny is a criminal who deserves 2 be put in azkaban! Its clear he did the best he could...nothing much could be done anyway. And y cant he post pics? Nvr read newspapers b4, u people??

Msian mentalities! Bah! Always making so much noise like chicken backside whenever there's a 'hot issue'. Jz talk & talk without thinking rationally but wont lift a finger 2 do anything. I tell u...most people would have stopped 2 watch 'free show' instead of actually DOING something 2 help....tats how most people behave here.

Dont believe me? Feel like shooting me too now? Well...go ahead & try u delusional morons! Live in denial! Watever makes u happy.

Learn from this & drive safe, people. Be more responsible please!

i suppose there's no harm in the ACT of taking the pictures themselves, but maybe some of the pictures ARE a bit too detailed and doesn't serve to tell people anything at all.

I don't suppose you would need to show the picture of the man carrying the girl off or the close up picture of the car with a kid's legs showing, or the picture of the ambulance at all.

Because it does sort of give the impression that you're trying to 'spice up' the story.

That's just my opinion.

However, it was good that you did what you did, cos its much more than what an average malaysian would do in the same circumstance. I totally understand what you mean by not knowing what to do with just basic first aid, and traumatic events affect different people differently.

My condolences to the family of the victims.

Unregistered

I hav read all the comments & it seems that a lot of them were written by ppl who are either jeolous of Kenny or think they are the real hero by making destructive criticism of him. Wat a perfect opportunity for these ppl to hav a go at him with this entry.

Ppl can write watever they wan, as long as Kenny thought he has done his best to help the victims, then nothing else matters - no need to defend, no need to explain.

Lets us pray that the little girl can hv a speedy recovery.

And Kenny, thanks for the photos that has resulted in many more prayers for the little girls from readers that may not know the tragic news.


Unregistered

Whoever thinks those photos are too 'detailed' are being too...over-sensitive. There r worse details being shown on television & newspapers....how come nobody makes so much noise about it?? Hypocrites! Nvr watch documentaries b4? Korean dramas taking too much space filling ur brain up with...well...dramas??

Gosh! Watever happened to open-minded people?? Those photos have obviously been taken in the best way he could, to show proof of the accident, while keeping in mind to be respectful by not revealing gory details & identities of the victims!

These photos have been posted up to give an account of the accident as best as he could...to educate us on the dangers of driving carelessly. Why cant evry1 learn from it & stop pretending to be so full of moral?

If u are really concerned...FIRST thing that comes to mind would be how the family is doing, the condition of the surviving girl....rather than "OMG F*** KENNYSIA! I MUST CRITICISE HIM NOW!". Then go back to your respective businesses prior to reading this blog and completely forgetting to stop & think about the feelings of the victims & their family.

Many...many comments posted here have made me feel sad and ashamed.. That people are more interested in pointing fingers rather than truly caring about the victims..

Unregistered

well l guess writing a blog is more like a self diary and l dont think u had any mistake of taking photos on it. At least you tried to help but sometimes it can be too shocked. No worries abt pple who wanna judge you cos this is ur Blog and at least we learn something if we see something happen like that.

sorry to the family..

you guys, kenny can easily get people to read and visit his website with a simple review of a kopitiam or chicken rice somewhere in kuching. He has talent in writing.

Do you really think that he need to take pictures of some accident to gain publicity?? What will he get out of a post of an accident? advertisements of airbags?? advertisement from JPJ?? C'mon la u guys get a life..

i know most of us couldnt have done anything for the families involved anyway. And no one is expecting monetary contributions from us. But at least....offer a sincere prayer to the victims & their families.

Kenny,

You might want to consider removing/censoring all or parts of comments that have nothing to do with your article, especially those that criticise the photos and impose their moral/ethical believes.

This would prevent immature people from flaming each other and perpetuating this argument.

Unregistered

Agh..for people who ask you to put down ur entry due to deprivation of morality, and ironically stated that morality is a highly subjective issue, yet he was 'demanding' for it- this merely shows that his sense of subjectiveness is screwed. And who is he to transgress your constitutional right?!

The driver is younger than you Kenny, the kids was safe but unfortunately her another two sisters were died. Their grandmother and the driver also died. I knew. This news advising us be careful when driving, don't not overtake people if we are not rush for time.

Unregistered

I have made an observation.

People who criticize Kenny in this post generally seem to be more eloquent and have a better command of the English language. They seem more assertive too.

Kenny replies: I have also made an observation. People who criticize me in this post generally do not leave their e-mail addresses and seems to hide behind different nicknames whilst using the same IP Address for the sole purpose of creating an illusion that a lot of people are criticizing me than there actually are.

Unregistered

To Crimson Blaze:
What are u talking about?! 'Journalists and phothographers for the newspapers' DO get criticized for things they include in their articles, i.e. Yellow Journalism, which is a pejorative reference to journalism that features sensationalism, jingoism or other unethical or unprofessional practices by news media organizations or individual journalists.

I say please understand what you are saying before you post.

Kenny isn't a journalist but being one of the top bloggers in Malaysia and having SUCH A HUGE VIEWERSHIP, this is clearly unethical and it seems like a highly sensationalized post.

It's good you called the ambulance, but sorry Kenny, I could've tolerated this post until I got to the photo where the girl's legs could be seen. You went overboard on that one.

But then again, look at how many comments you are getting! No wonder you HAD to put those photos up! : )

Way to go Am-Jay! I'm proud of u! Kenny is a scumbag.

hey ah Foo aka Kennysia! now u know what malaysians love-blood, gore, death...man, u've struck gold!and to those who question who we are to judge or criticize dear tze foo, we have the right because he's made it a public blog. Honestly ah Foo(l), you disgust me.

Dear Kenny, let me present you with the lessons I have learnt about this post thus far...

Lesson #1: I should remember to not put up disrespectful photos. It is offensive and insensitive.

Lesson #2: Oh but what, I should put up more sensationalised pictures. I am getting so many readers! 586 comments to date, FAR OUT!

Unregistered

I dont suppose you should have uploaded tHAT many pics of the scene. I think thats whats upsetting so many peeps. I myself found it a bit disturbing. Yes, you had the time to take many pics but I dont think you needed to upload that many up do you kennies? :)

Agrees with JustAnotherTragedy :)
hope u learn from this n dont become defensive

Turns out the initial information I have received about the little girl in hospital having passed is incorrect.

Just a few minutes ago, one of the medical staff from Sarawak General Hospital sent me an email. The girl is in ICU but is in stable condition.

Thank God.

On a different note, Saturday's edition of Sin Chew Jit Poh dedicated not one blog entry, but FIVE FULL PAGES of the newspaper to this car accident, including the front page headline which features workers cutting through the wreckage and the picture of a dead body covered in newspapers with some flesh sticking out. The front page headlines also feature the full names and photos of all the victims in the car accident.

Refer to:
http://www.sinchew.com.my/content.phtml?sec=203&artid=200705181738

http://www.sinchew.com.my/content.phtml?sec=203&artid=200705181590

The web edition does not have photos, but the newspapers have at least 10 photos of the wreckage, the victim's family, the wake and mourning.

Is it offensive? I would think so because they are using this tragic story to sell their newspapers.

You talk about 'respect' but I still do not understand why people have such double standards when it comes to newspapers and my blog.

I have one blog entry about my first-hand account of the accident. The newspaper have FIVE full pages.

Unregistered

Its very much interesting to observe and read all the comments... everyone have to agree ait now, A picture means a thousand words...

To Kenny.
I am not a fan of you but i really like your blog that suits the 'Generation C' era.
Kudos and congratulations to Kenny, one lucky bastard to be there and the right location and exactly at the right time.Not forgetting that you manage to take hips of pics.. And i wonder whether do you have any close ups. For doing all that and no one actually stops you or your camera got bashed up.That was lucky of you.
I am actually a photography enthusiast that love taking pictures that involved spontaneous incidents such as what you encountered. I have thousands of pictures that describes death and near death experience. It is all my personal collection merely but on a few occasion my picture was actually being used by the media,insurance company and other related parties thats interested in my pictures.

What I'm gonna share is not to defend Kenny on his ability taking pictures during inappropriate times, but to share with everyone how important it is this kind of picture in educating them for not making the same mistake...

I used to follow a friend of mine that is a volunteer paramedic.. my favourite time is actually the first weekend after the payroll day..
This is where most of the REMPITS would come out and enjoy themselves . I have seen countless horryfying dead bodies infront of me...
Around 3-4am, on this particular weekend, do drop by at the EMERGENCY section at any big hospitals around your city.. my personal favourite GH KL or PPUM.Hips of rempits waiting for their injured,near dead and deceased buddies. I'll just hang out by the big door with my camera and this guys would approach me asking whether I'm a reporter or such a thing. The next thing I would just show my pictures that I've been taken all night long..

Why I'm doing this is basically to educate the REMPITS for valuing their life... That is my sole reason. Call me sick or crazy, i'm cool with that... A man have to do what a man believe that can change the world.Coz 10 years ago I saw a couple of pictures during "Kempen Keselamatan Jalan Raya " an exhnition to create awareness to primary and secondary kids about road safety..
I still remembered exactly how that particular picture of a man being cut into countless pieces of meat with eyeballs popping out. It was a big traumatic picture that change my life forever.


Keep up the good work mate.. although I have to agree that posting the picture was a bit un-ethical.. but hell it works..
look at all the feedback you're getting...
Stay focus on your intention...
Shit happens man... admit it.. move on...

Life is not abt a routine act that happens every morning when you open up your eyes. Shit happens and life is about handling the shit. That makes you what you are...

Cheers

i guess those giving kenny stick would rather not know that this happened?

Unregistered

all this while we read kennysia.com coz he has done so much things that we couldnt do and bring us so much laughter...

suddenly this blog reminded us, "hey, he is still a human (and, a fairly young man, remember that?), and he does make mistake." though it takes greater courage to admit one's mistake.

he may not understand what he has done wrong for now. but in the future, i am sure a smart person like him would realize it.

dont you, kenny?

i am sure you have learned something from this blog.

Unregistered

Dude. Simplest thing to do is to remember not to take photos next time coz some people think it's insensitive.....

Don't you think it's so much better than for strangers to start calling you an inconsiderate fat pig?

Unregistered

a bit of historical facts for you nice lot. the photographer taking the photo of the starving sudanese girl, his name is kevin carter. you can wiki it up. he did not help the girl, for fear of getting diseased. he won the pulitzer prize later for the photo. and later on, he commited suicide. you can find out why yourself.

for kenny, you've read all the comments. you know how some people feel, how some others feel. i don't know how you feel, i can't emphatize with you since i do not share your code of morals. just want you to know that even if you are just a blogger, remember that you do have a social and public responsibility in your postings one way or another.

my own opinion is that i feel the photos are too sensationalist. one would have been sufficient, to drive whatever message you wanted across. but this? what purpose did you want to serve? i don't know, i just don't like what i see.

you can read the story of kevin carter, it does bear some relevence to what i'm trying to say to you. at the end of the day, everybody sins. it's just a question, of how much sin you can live with?

Unregistered

somehow if it were me, instead of standing there doing nothing for 30min since there's really nothing can be done, i would have taken pictures too. sorry if you would think that i am insensitive, but in newspaper, we will not possibly see the whole damaged - look at the picture in the link. That is where the car has been pulled from the truck. Kenny's pic showed how badly the car was stuck, and served well as a reminder for all drivers out there.

I remember Kenny said before, if you don't like, don't read. He did not show any faces/car plate no. I can understand the whole situation better with picture, and if things like this ever happen to me, i'm sure i will be better prepared, as i learned from Kenny's experience, where he kindly share for us.

and come on, he doesn't have to earn fame with these pictures. He's already famous enough, as someone whom i would not missed any of his entries.

Unregistered

My condolence to the family!

And I don't think Kenny is like Kevin Carter. For god's sake, he did help in every way he could. And those priceless pictures and this blog entry did convey a powerful message, and serve a purpose rather than selling his blog, doesnt it? It's disturbing, but it was a right thing to do. Being a rather reckless driver as I am, it alarms me. I'm not saying I can change myself right now, but I will. My full support!

Unregistered

just my 2cents worth. i think the purpose why this entry is up, and why ( as other readers claim ) that he's being insensitive to take pictures at that point of time, is partly because he wants to do up an entry, to increase awareness. and knowing that he has got so many readers, I THINK he hopes that people who reads this blog will be more careful while driving.

Unregistered

You were not traumatised enough to not snap pictures of the accident.

Personally, this entry would have just been as impactful if you had not posted at all. or maybe a pic taken from a newspaper article instead of those that you snapped yourself.

Unregistered

we're shocked !

Unregistered

Typically where feelings run high the emotional will try to kill the Messenger. Having assessed there was nothing within his scope to contribute, Kenny did what he does best "collected data for his blog".
Besides the obvious Extending of Condolences and Sincere Expressions of Sorrow.
The blog gave me pause to consider The driver tried to overtake where there was NOT enough room:- A Motor Vehicle is the most Dangerous piece of equipment many people will ever operate, and passing a Driving Exam doesn't qualify anyone as a good Driver,it simply means they have demonstrated the Minimum acceptable level of Safety in Operating the Vehicle. It is why some countries now issue Graduated Licenses-Pass the test then drive with an experienced driver for a while until they get comfortable. Daytime Running Headlights-as Ignition switches on Headlights come on-Really does INCREASE visibility and stats proove they reduce accidents.Seatbelts-Adult seatbelts only work well for kids sitting on booster seats, kids in back seat become projectiles on impact.What are penalties like for Reckless/Careless/Negligent Driving - I've always reasoned that Killing someone with a Motor Vehicle carries the LEAST penalty for taking a Human Life, fact is the victim is just as dead as any other means. I know of a family on the Serian Road who has had TWO members die as direct result of being hit by vehicles and two others with permanent injuries all hit while WALKING, which suggest Reckless drivers don't really FEAR incurring penalties.Auto Insurance should be tied to Driving Record, I know some who pay more for Insurance than the care is worth, and Driving without insurance should carry direct prison terms. There has NEVER been a single case where a child has initiated it's entry into this world,and for that reason alone Adults have a duty to keep them SAFE.
In closing I'd like to offer:-
"The upright, though they die before their time will find rest.
Length of days is not what makes age honourable, nor number of years the true measure of life; understanding, this is grey hairs, untarnished life, this is ripe old age. Having won God's favour, they have been loved and, as they were living among sinners, have been taken away. They have been carried off so that evil may not warp their understanding or deceitfulness seduce their souls; for the fascination of evil throws good things into the shade, and the whirlwind of desire corrupts a simple heart. Having come to perfection so soon, they have lived long; Their souls being pleasing to the Lord, they have hurried away from the wickedness around them.
Grace and Mercy awaits his chosen ones and God intervenes on behalf of his holy ones. The Upright who die condemns the Godless who survive, and youth quickly perfected condemns the lengthy old age of the wicked." Wisdom: 4/7-16.

Kenny makes a fine journalist. This post wouldn't have made as much of an impact if it weren't for the images. Insensivity? What insensivity? We have MPs calling women derogatory names and THIS is insensivity? It's not as though he took photographs of the bodies.

Certain thing/incident that we face sometime need to be keep mum not to be share to fellow public. And one thing that I fear is stumble upon Keny Sia in real life, and I'll be wondering will he publicize me without my consent.

I think it's very stupid that there're so many people concerned over ONE girl in THIS car accident when so many people in the world are dying out there. Rather then saying, "RIP" or "My condolences", why don't y'all go donate some money to the AIDS fund or something, so you can prevent more people from dying?

i'm a mom with 2 kids, always driving them back n forth all over the place school tuitions activities, we're careless, never wear seat belts, always in a hurry........... but after seeing these photos i'm going to make sure everyone buckles up and i'm never going to overtake ...ever. However gruesome these pixs may seem to everyone else who knows how many lives are saved by this.

Atricle in the borneo post online.

http://www.theborneopost.com/?p=19021

"KUCHING: A 47-year-old pregnant woman and her three family members, killed instantly in a head-on collision last Friday, were laid to rest at noon yesterday.


TRAGIC: Grieving relatives pay their last respects to the four victims.
Relatives came from as far as Johor, Miri, Limbang, Serikei and Serian to pay their last respects.

The funeral procession started from Kota Samarahan and ended at a graveyard in Siniawan.

The woman was found to be two months’ pregnant at the time she was killed.

The tragic incident took place at Jalan Matang-Batu Kawa at about 3.15pm on Friday.

Kuching District traffic police DSP Awang Kasumajaya was quoted by Bernama as saying that the car driven by the woman’s daughter, 22, was overtaking another vehicle when it smashed into a lorry.

The front portion of the car was destroyed. Rescuers had to cut through the wreckage to retrieve the bodies.

The death toll was four: the woman, her daughter and two grandchildren – one aged two years and another only eight months old.

A four-year-old girl, who sustained serious head injuries, was the sole survivor among the occupants of the car.

The lorry driver, 50, escaped with light injuries. "

its dangerous to bend down your body look for something or take something when you drive in a very high speed,your car might move to the opposite land while you are bending down your body if there is the car at the other side thats the time we say so long to our dear one.PLS PLS never bend down your body to search thing inside while your are in a high speed.

Aw man.. The girl passed away? My highest regrets to the family and relatives of the girl.. Pity.. So young and yet so unlucky.. Reminds me of the advertisement of the road safety the government used to use in tv advertisements..

Moral: Driving safely isn't for your own safety only, it's also for the safety of those around you.

Kenny ohh, weird thing i never see pictures as DETAILED as yours in China Press or any other press. Wonder why they never put it up. Maybe hoh, Kenny, you go there and then ask them to print your detailed pictures in their paper.

See what they tell you. Whether they think it is ethical.

It is ok, Kenny, by not removing the picture you have proved to yourself and the media that you are ETHICAL in taking such pictures.

Some say it is noble like saving lives (pun intended). Wow!

If something like that happens to you, I will do the same, Kenny. I will stay there and take pictures, DETAILED one some more. Wait for the person like the bystander in your picture and save you and take another picture, then post it in a blog.

It is ok, Kenny, dun remove anything. I will follow your example. Don't blame me, yeah. It is ETHICAL and NOT WRONG, yes it is (not).

Yes, it's ok, Kenny, your conscience will tell you what you did is NOT wrong. Your conscience will tell you that your sub-conscious intention is NOT to take the photo because it is controversial and you can get hits and money out of it.

Good luck, rest well and have a good dream. God will bless people like you for 'saving lives' and reminding others to drive safely like some of the visitors here say. God will bless you because you do not intend to make money out of this and generate hits.

God bless you. I am sure the people who died and family involved will thank you very much for the pictures. They will be happy and greatful for someone to record such tragic event and NOT make money and hits out of it. Yeah, ahem, yes, that is right.

What a noble man you are. So all ladies and gentleman out there, next time when you see accident, just call 999 and then stand there and take pictures. DETAILED ones. It would be best if ten or twenty of you there. Then you can see everyone happily snapping away, while those inside have difficulty and dying. It is ETHICAL to do so, right?

I would do so if you are involved in accident too..

Good luck Malaysia.

That means you just admitted to using the accident to sell the popularity of your blog. Just like the newspaper use it to sell theirs.

Kenny said: Your argument is a fallacy. I don't think I EVER admit to use the accident to 'sell' the popularity of my blog. I DO NOT NEED TO, WANT TO, OR EVEN INTEND TO USE THE CAR ACCIDENT TO 'SELL' MY BLOG.

People are using the argument that I blog about this entry to become popular. THAT IS BULLSHIT. I blogged about this incident because I witnessed it first-hand and it was a case where my day-to-day routine was not normal. THAT IS WHY I BLOGGED ABOUT IT. Not for freaking popularity! I know what stuff I write is popular and I know this is not it.

They are a news agency. Those pictures are posted with consent from the immediate family members and taken after the accident. They have a code of ethics to follow.

Kenny replies: You can name me EVERY SINGLE code of ethics that press photographers follow and I can prove to you that I followed EVERY SINGLE one of them. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF THEM.

You took those posted before you got any permission and during the accident. Do you also know how many complaints news agencies got a day?

Kenny replies: THEN DO YOU COMPLAIN TO THE NEWS AGENCIES? Of course not! Why? Newspapers don't have a Comments page!

You on the other hand are not. You are a single individual that got famous not because of journalistic values and out of a sudden you pulled something like this on your blog. What exactly do you expect? .....oooo...more hits of course!!! Silly me...

Kenny replies: Stop trying to explain everything that I do is for the popularity of the blog. Tell you one thing ok? I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE POPULARITY OF MY BLOG.

YEAH, KENNY, SUPER NOBLE PERSON

Kenny oh Kenny, the photos in China Press was taken NOT during the accident where LIVES could have been saved.

You were taking pictures when you KNOW FIRST AID and LIVES CAN BE SAVED. I mean look at this picture

Kenny replies: THEY ARE ALL DEAD. How do you save four dead people?!

One picture with a lot of people (volunteers) coming out to think of a way to save them. Then there is this motorcyclist who took a child out and send her to hospital while you are busy snapping away at the poor dying child and the noble volunteer.

Kenny replies: THE MOTORCYCLIST WAS NOT TAKING THE CHILD TO SEND HER TO THE HOSPITAL. The motorcyclist was lifting her out from the front seat, chant some Muslim prayers and laying her on the back seat.

So, ok lah, it's ok. You are right. You are noble person who in your mind and soul intentionally never help them because you dunno what to do (although you know first aid).

Kenny replies: Like I said, there was a 45 minute gap between calling the ambulance and the ambulance actually arriving. FORTY FIVE MINUTES. No one could do anything at all because they are all dead. WE CHECKED.

Weird thing, you know first aid, the rest of the volunteers i am not sure. You know photography too. Ohh, you are a noble person. You choose to use photography first but don't want to use first aid.

Kenny replies: THEY ARE DEAD. YOU CANNOT USE FIRST AID ON A DEAD PERSON.

Good hoh, very noble person. Hope the God knows your nobility. It is not for us to judge you. God will judge you for your own personality.

But I believe you are a noble person. Next time, if my child is a DOCTOR or a NURSE and saw such accident, I tell him, dun do anything, just make a call to 999, SNAP PICTURES first, then post in my blog, say like you are sorry. Then only consider you wanna use your first aid skills to help the victim.

Kenny replies: THEY ARE DEAD. YOU CANNOT USE FIRST AID ON A DEAD PERSON.

Do that even if that is your relatives, no problem, snap first, (maybe) help later...

It is ok. No problem, Kenny Sia sets a good example of that. People think it is ethical. So, just do it.

Thank you Kenny Sia for the good moral that you, as a famous, so-called professional, most influential in Malaysia for teaching the current and future generation in Malaysia...

Bless you all, keep on supporting him. He is definitely a righteous man. He said it is not wrong because the papers are not wrong. Ok, we take his word for it.

CALLING THE FUTURE GENERATION OF MALAYSIA TO FOLLOW KENNY SIA.

IF YOU KNOW PHOTOGRAPHY AND FIRST AID, WHICH SKILL WILL YOU USE FIRST?

PHOTOGRAPHY, SNAP PICTURES FIRST. USE FIRST AID (OR DON'T) LATER.

PICTURES MORE IMPORTANT THAN FIRST AID.

WE SHOULD INTRODUCE THIS TO MORAL AND PENDIDIKAN AGAMA IN ALL SCHOOLS ALL OVER MALAYSIA.

PLEASE DON'T EQUAL YOUR BLOG TO A NEWS AGENCY

Your entries are entertaining at best if not crap at times.

Just because you think its right doesn't make it right. The public has spoken. Majority of your readers are against it.

Kenny replies: I think you have a very skewed idea of statistics. Don't say a majority of my readers are against it when you yourself don't know if it is true. JUST BECAUSE YOU THINK IT IS TRUE DOES NOT MEAN IT IS TRUE.

Those who supported you can barely even make a logical argument. All they can come up with is ask us to get out. Doesn't this shows the level of maturity that take your side and perhaps yours....no offense.

A panicky person should stay calm and not use his first aid skills. So he must stay calm take more pictures while people do their work.

It is an ethical thing to do from the way some people here say, I mean, just take pictures when you are panick. Never mind, that person is dying.

If those people say that this is ethical is involved in an accident, I pray to God that ALL those that appeared during that time are those who knows first aid but choose to take pictures first because of panicky.

They (people who say Kenny is a super noble man) say it is good, so they should be treated as such. Nothing wrong with that.

You see, some people here say, it reminds them to drive safely. I mean, now Kenny is the hero mar, the photographer.

No one mention about the volunteers who save the kids. It is proven, pictures is a priority.

Where got say picture is priority?

Wow, there's way too much repetitive comment posts, but the question is who are we to judge the ethics and morals of other people in that situation? Most of us will just end up fighting the evil within ourselves.

Here's my two cent, if I were to be a family member of the victims, I'd kindly ask Kenny to remove the pictures from the blog, but I won't hold anything against him.

No, you did not say picture is priority, but it is ethical to take picture that way and you know first aid but don't use it but use the photograph first.

Kenny replies: THEY ARE DEAD. YOU CANNOT USE FIRST AID ON A DEAD PERSON.

So, photography is priority. Actions speak louder than words. Kenny, we, the future generation of Malaysia will follow you, LOYALLY.

SECOND PART:
It is OK to take such pictures you and the rest say. It is OK to do that. So, next time, accident time we will take photography while the rest of the volunteers (dunno whether they know first aid or not) help but if we know first aid, we dun help, snap photographs because of panicky.


Kenny replies: We already helped all we could. I snapped the photos while waiting for the ambulance. THEY ARE DEAD. YOU CANNOT USE FIRST AID ON A DEAD PERSON.

This one you got say mar... Thank you, Kenny, next time you or those that support this action as moral involve in accident, I will also take photograph first when i panick even though I know first aid. Weird thing, the photographs look so nice taken when panick (yours for example).


Kenny replies: THEY ARE DEAD. YOU CANNOT USE FIRST AID ON A DEAD PERSON.

Thank you Kenny, God bless you. Your intention is never to make money for the public. But you proved yourself is right. So, you are a celebrity
