IN the wake of yet another fatal incident at a tourist destination near limestone hills in Ipoh, “Rockfall kills tour guide at popular tourist attraction in Ipoh” (The Star, April 9), I feel compelled to raise my concerns about the safety of such locations.

If I am not mistaken, there have been dozens of incidents at or near limestone hills to date with many of them resulting in fatalities.
