Determined To Walk For 16 Hours,A Sarawakian Man Had No Money For A Ride Was Helped By A Good Samaritan

During the Movement Control Order (MCO), a Sarawakian man who works at Selayang was laid off from his job for three months. He was stuck and could not go back to Sarawak. When he got the opportunity, he could not pay for Grab or taxi to reach KLIA as he was penniless. Determined, he tried to walk 80 kilometers from Selayang to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. When his sister learned about his situation, she immediately contacted Kuan Chee Heng, also known as Uncle Potato.

Kuan Chee Heng said that the sister sent a message to him for help yesterday, unfortunately, he didn’t see it. He didn’t receive the call from the man until 8 o’clock yesterday morning for help.”He told me that he walked from Selayang from 7 o’clock yesterday morning, planning to go to Kuala Lumpur International Airport to fly back to Sarawak for 5 p.m flight. But when he arrived at Jalan Kuching, he got lost. That’s when his sister called me for help”

Kuan continued, “At that time, I asked him where he was but he didn’t know his location. So, I asked him to find the nearest police station to confirm where he was and went there to pick him up. After that, we took him to the airport. He had no money, so I gave him RM200 for food and to go home safely.”

It was also calculated that if he wants to walk from Selayang to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, it will take 16 hours. Thanks to Kuan, the Sarawakian man was able to catch his flight and got home safely.
