KUALA LUMPUR, March 9 — Three traffic police motorcyclists escorting the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah took the quick decision to bring an ambulance en route to the National Institute of Cardiology in Kuala Lumpur.
The ambulance, which belongs to prominent social activist Kuan Chee Heng, was en route from Section 14 of Petaling Jaya to the IJN.
Kuan, better known as Uncle Kentang, posted a video on Facebook of the three police bikers clearing traffic for the ambulance on the Sprint Expressway.
“Thank you to Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah who allowed three police officers to accompany our ambulance while transporting a patient from Section 14, PJ to IJN,” Kuan posted on Facebook.
Kuan said malaysian mail that the incident happened this morning and thank Her Majesty for her kindness.
“My ambulance was on its way to the IJN when Agong’s entourage saw the vehicle.
“The lead motorcade then approached the ambulance and motioned for the driver to follow them.”
Kuan said the motorcade cleared the way for the ambulance to Jalan Parlimen.
“I would like to thank Her Majesty for her kind and prompt decision.”
Kuan said the ambulance reached the IJN at 9:45 a.m., where the patient was receiving medical treatment.
It comes after a recent viral incident where an ambulance was stopped to make way for a VIP convoy.
The incident sparked anger online among social media users who said the ambulance should have been given priority.
The video has since been deleted from Uncle Kentang’s Facebook page due to an error.
