Primary student jabbed by sewing needles pierced in bus seat

A primary three student had his hips jabbed by a needle that stuck out of a bus seat on Monday, marking the sixth such case within six months.
The boy in Aberdeen was suspected to be jabbed by a sewing needle on a Citybus route 43M bus to school. He was then taken to the hospital by ambulance accompanied by his mother.

It was understood that the police received a report at about 7.50am that the boy was hurted by a needle planted in a seat on the lower deck of the bus.

After the incident, he got off the bus at Tin Wan Bus Terminus with mother and informed the person in charge of the station about the incident.

The case was under investigation and no one has yet been arrested.

This was at least the sixth needle-stabbing case on buses in the past six months.

On May 6, a 60-year-old woman was stabbed in the back by a 5cm long needle pierced in the back of a New World First Bus route 81 bus seat on the lower deck.

Earlier on May 2, a 40-year-old man saw a needle hidden on the seat next to him on Kowloon Motor Bus route 73 from Tai Po. He then informed the bus driver to call the police.

In addition, a passenger in January reported finding two 3cm long needles in a seat on the upper deck of a KMB route 601 bus.
