AWOMAN who was robbed by an Uber driver and his accomplice last Sunday has suffered a miscarriage a week after the incident.
The victim, Wong Mei Yan, who was six weeks pregnant, told a press conference in Puchong here yesterday that the miscarriage was believed to be due to emotional instability as one of the suspects was still at large.
The 26-year-old sales assistant said she would take legal action against the e-hailing service company for emotional distress and losses as a result of the incident.
Wong claimed that the shareride firm had failed to give immediate cooperation to police following the May 21 incident.
“I went for check-up twice after the incident — on Monday and yesterday — and the results were okay,” Wong said.
However, she added, she soon felt unwell after her check-up and that her family had sent her to Serdang Hospital after she began bleeding heavily around 3am yesterday.
“Upon inspection, the doctor confirmed that I had lost my baby,” she said.
She said she had been contacting the Uber hotline to get an explanation from the company
