Bot Ekspres Bawa 100 Penumpang Karam Di Belaga

SIBU: Sebuah bot ekspres sarat dengan penumpang yang ingin pulang untuk sambutan Hari Gawai, karam di kawasan Jeram Tukok/Jeram Bungan, kira-kira 40 minit perjalanan dari sini, pada Selasa.

Sehingga kini jumlah mangsa belum disahkan dan polis masih berada di tempat kejadian.

Ketika kejadian yang dilapor antara pukul 8.30 dan 9 pagi ini, bot berkenaan dikatakan membawa lebih 100 penumpang yang ingin pulang untuk sambutan Pesta Gawai Dayak hujung minggu ini.

Anggota Majlis Pihak Berkuasa Tempatan Majlis Daerah Kapit Daniel Levoh ketika dihubungi Bernama berkata 'Bot Ekspres Bakun Mas' itu melepasi Belaga pada pukul 8 pagi.

Daniel berkata beliau dimaklumkan bahawa hanya seorang wanita mengandung yang maut dalam kejadian itu.

Beliau berkata bot yang datang dari Bakun itu membawa penumpang yang kebanyakannya pekerja pembalakan dan ladang kelapa sawit di kawasan itu.

"Bot itu biasanya berhenti di Belaga tetapi disebabkan telah penuh, ia meneruskan perjalanan tanpa berhenti di Belaga," katanya.

"Ramai penumpang dilihat duduk di atas bumbung bot itu," katanya sambil memberitahu kapasiti bot itu ialah 67 penumpang.

Sementara itu ketua penerangan Parti Rakyat Sarawak Dannny Bungan berkata polis dan petugas Lembaga Sungai Sarawak perlu ditempatkan di kawasan-kawasan pedalaman seperti Bakun dan Belaga untuk memantau keadaan semasa sambutan sesuatu perayaan besar.

"Terdapat terlalu ramai pekerja dari Kapit dan kawasan-kawasan lain di kawasan Bakun. Apabila tiba cuti panjang orang ramai akan berpusu-pusu untuk pulang ke kampung dengan bot ekspres," katanya.~ Mstar

BERITA TERKINI :

Overloaded express boat capsizes 21 reported missing
May 28, 2013

The express boat was believed to have carried more than 100 passengers although its official load capacity is for 67 seated passengers.


SIBU: An express boat packed with passengers returning home for the Gawai Dayak Festival this weekend sank at the Jeram Tukok/Jeram Bungan area about 40-minute journey from here between 8.30am and 9am this morning.

According to Daniel Levoh, a councillor of the Kapit District Council, the express boat was believed to have carried more than 100 passengers although its official load capacity is for 67 seated passengers.

Contacted by Bernama, he said the “Bakun Mas Express Boat” passed by Belaga at 8am. It had come from Bakun much earlier. Its passengers were timber camp and timber, and oil palm plantation workers in the area.

“The boat was supposed to have made the normal transit stop at Belaga but it did not do so as it was already packed.

“Many passengers were seen sitting on its roof which is not allowed.

“There were more passengers waiting for it at the Belaga wharf so that was why it only stopped in midriver to allow crew members to buy food for the journey to Kapit and Sibu,” he said.

He added when the boat crashed onto a rock in the area, the passengers were able to swim to the banks.

Meanwhile, Parti Rakyat Sarawak Information chief Dannny Bungan, who is from Sungai Asap, said the police and the Sarawak River Board personnel must be stationed in interior places like Bakun and Belaga to monitor the situation before any major festival.

“There are so many workers from Kapit and other areas working in the Bakun area. Come any long holidays there is a mad rush to get home by taking the express boat,” he said.

He added if personnel from the two departments were around, they could monitor the situation well.

He also said all passengers must record their details in the passenger list as required by the Sarawak River Board and practiced in all major towns in the state.
