KAJANG: A trip to the convenience store ended in tragedy when an elderly couple were hit by a train while making an illegal crossing when they were returning to their home in Kajang Utama.
The pensioners, identified as 69-year-old Md Nor Md Lian and 64-year-old Noriah Mat Ani, were said to be walking home to their flat after grocery shopping at Reko Sentral here.
“They were using the tracks as a shortcut to their flat when they were run over by an oncoming train.
“The couple were thrown some 5m away and landed near a drain,” police sources said.
A witness, believed to be the train operator, lodged a report at 1.25pm.
The bodies were sent to the Kajang Hospital for a post-mortem.
“We will commence investigations into their deaths as soon as we’ve received more information on the case.
“We are recording statements from their children at the district station,” said Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab.
