FRASER Towers’ chief of security services, John Gyan Bahadur, survived a close call in a landslip incident while removing fallen trees along Jalan 5/60 in Bukit Gasing a month ago. He is glad to be alive to tell his story.

He said it began to rain around 6am on Jan 25.

“I heard loud crashing sounds and found that a number of trees had fallen onto the road, a few hundred metres from the apartments’ security post.

“I and another security personnel went out to cut the branches and move the trees to the side of the road. It was 7.45am by then and the rain became heavier.

“We heard a loud rumble coming from the hilltop, in the direction of Sivan Temple’s arch. At the same time I felt the ground shake and within seconds, a river of mud came rushing down the slope.

I used my phone to record the incident but as the flow increased, both of us ran to safety,” said Bahadur.

He added that the incident had also brought down rocks and tree branches snapped like toothpicks.

“So far the people living in the area have been lucky but I fear what will happen if the slope is not strengthened,” he said.

Bahadur has been working at Fraser Towers for seven years.
