A video showing kids jumping onto a moving fuel tanker goes viral in Sabah – Semporna Police are requesting more information as they would like to talk to the children’s guardians.
Following a recent viral video where three kids were seen going for a joyride on the back of a moving fuel tanker, Semporna police have said they would take action on the children’s guardians if they were found to be neglecting their children and allowing them to carry out dangerous activities.
The video which circulated on social media, showed three boys running to the back of a moving fuel tanker, and then jumped onto the back, hitching a ride just for fun.
According to The Star, Semporna OCPD Supt Mohd Farhan Lee Abdullah said the incident happened near a gas station along Jalan Bubul Semporna, heading towards Tawau district.
“In the 84-second video, three children were seen running to the back of the tanker from the roadside before clinging onto the moving vehicle,” he said in a statement.
Supt Mohd Farhan reckons the boys are children of immigrants and had later run off halfway into the ride.
The incident was captured on a dashboard camera, so the Semporna police are urging locals to help keep the community safe by providing them with information and reporting to the Semporna police station at 089-782 020 for further action.
