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
