Family’s bid for answers hits a wall as grandpa lies in coma after fall
[Image: mainpic.jpg]

PETALING JAYA: A family seeking to find out who is responsible for maintaining an apartment building has hit a stumbling block despite a grandfather lying in a coma for nearly six weeks following a fall down the stairs.

John Joseph Samikanoo, 67, has been unconscious since his fall at the PKNS apartment building in SS8, Kelana Jaya, on March 13 after he was forced to walk up to his 10th floor unit as all three lifts were out of order.

Found next to him was a rusty stair railing, which police suspect might have given way when John used it to support himself during the incident at his apartment block, one of two built there by PKNS in 1984.

His family, who complained that the lifts and staircase had been poorly maintained, claimed that the building’s management corporation (MC) had been unwilling to accept any responsibility.
