Sir/Ma’am, I would like to relay an event that happened to me on Sept. 28, 2013 to serve as a warning to others. I am also hoping that this incident be investigated.
At around 8:50PM, I left my aunt’s place in Tambo, Paranaque and hailed a taxi in MIA Road in front of Park n Fly. When I got in the cab, I noticed that it was stifling hot inside as the driver had the aircon off. After I have settled in, he turned the aircon on and I noticed that the air blasting out from the vent smelled funny…and then I saw the driver put a piece of cloth in front of the vent. After barely 5 minutes, I felt nauseous… light-headed… I could barely breathe!!! I immediately felt too weak and felt as if I were going to pass out… I told the driver that I forgot something and had to go back. He said we should drive back to get it. We were nearing a stop light then and luckily, it was on red and the driver had to slow down. With all of my remaining strength, I yanked open the door and ran for my life!!!All I can remember is that the taxi is white and had the plate number TYK830. The driver is in his mid 50s and was balding. If yo u can do something to investigate and prevent this from happening again, it will surely save a lot of future victims. Thank you so much!!!!
