GLASS EXIT DOOR TROUBLES * China: Woman lost her balance and smashed the glass
* Hong Kong - Bus door smashed after rider loses balance
-- A middle-aged woman hurt her arm and suffered a hard blow to the head when she lost her balance and smashed the glass exit door on a bus making a turn... Fortunately, a handrail across the door prevented Au Wing-suen, 51, from being thrown out of the double-decker bus in Tsim Sha Tsui... It was the second such incident this month... Police said Au was about to alight and had left her seat... As she was about to press the bell, the Kowloon Motor Bus route 219X turned right from Salisbury Road into Nathan Road and she lost her balance, hitting and smashing her hand and head against the door... Au was not hurt by the glass fragments, although broken glass was scattered on the roadside... KMB set up a committee following that accident to review and enhance passenger safety while a bus is in motion...
