Malaysia: British Tourist, 32, Dies When Double-Decker Skids Off Roadway

According to The New Straits Times, British Tourist Harry Christopher Woolhouse, 32, from Peterborough, died following a double-decker bus that skidded off the roadway and rolled down a ravine 45-foot (13.7 meters).
The bus was taking foreign tourists to Singapore when the bus ran off the road.

Woolhouse had recently relocated to Singapore where he worked for engineering firm Atkins. 

COMMENT: It is not known how many of the 39 people on board the bus were injured. 

The tourists were from the UK, US, France, China, India and Singapore, according to the TIMES. 

Our readers are reminded that roadway accidents occur frequently in developing nations which is why I have strongly urged travelers to subscribe to international medical treatment and evacuation coverage that includes the return of their remains in the event of death.

The above being stated, many travelers omit such coverage as a bad omen.

This report will be updated as new information becomes available.
