A 34 year old Malaysian cleaner was killed on the spot at the Budget terminal after being hit by a taxi driven by a 30 year old PRC man. His family is in Johor and he’s said to have four children, with the youngest about four months old.
According to ComfortDelGro spokesperson Tammy Tan, the taxi driver was driving the PRC man to the airport when they somehow got into an argument.
Upon reaching the destination, the PRC passenger refused to pay the taxi driver and started to attack him. He then got into the taxi and drove off hitting the cleaner at the driveway in front of the Budget Terminal moments later.
The PRC man has been arrested and was sent to Changi General Hospital for medical treatment. It is not known if he is a Singapore PR or new citizen.
The unfortunate incident is the latest in a spate of violence acts committed by China nationals in Singapore. Three weeks ago, a PRC undergraduate ‘Ares Lim’ punched a Singaporean man in Chinatown over a staring incident and ranted online that Singaporeans are not worth a ‘fart’.
Former Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew said in an interview with National Geographic magazine in 2009 that it is a ‘good thing’ that Singapore is welcoming so many Chinese immigrants (from China) as they are ‘harder-driving’ and ‘harder-striving’ than locals.
