Thai Tour Bus Mishap at Cameron Highlands   Picture resources from YouTube


On 20 December 2010, A bus carrying Thai tourists crashed and overturned as it came down from Cameron Highlands, killing 26 Thai nationals in what is believed to be the worst road accident in Malaysian history. The accident occured at KM15 of the Cameron Highlands-Simpang Pulai road at 11.40am. The bus was heading to Kuala Lumpur from Cameron Highlands.

The impact of the crash was so severe that bodies were flung several metres away from the wreckage while others were trapped deep in the mangled vehicle. It took about 100 police, Fire and Rescue Department, Civil Defence Department and Public Works Department personnel over three hours to retrieve the bodies.

Casket Paradise & Funeral Care Sdn Bhd were being authorized by an insurance company to rush to Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital for the repatriation of the deceased bodies. All 26 bodies were completely repatriated back to Bangkok on 22 December 2010.

Malaysia Motor GP 2011 Incident


On 23 October 2011, the 32-year-old rider Marco Simoncelli was involved in the crash on the second lap in Malaysia that ended in tragedy with the San Carlo Gresini Honda rider succumbing to serious head, neck and chest injuries.

The Grecini Honda rider lost control of his bike on the exit of Turn 11 and was hit first by Colin Edwards and then by Rossi, knocking his helmet off and causing "serious trauma" to his head, neck and chest.

Simoncelli, a rising MotoGP star, died at the same Malaysian Sepang circuit where the Italian won the 250cc world title in 2008. His death came only a week after Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon was killed in a 15-car accident in the IndyCar finale at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Again, being a reputable with proven track record funeral service provider, Casket Paradise & Funeral Care Sdn Bhd was the authorized undertaker to be responsible for the repatriation of the Late Mr Marco Simoncelli. As this is shocking to MotoGP world, with very little time permitted, we have successfully repatriated the remains back to his homeland Italy with less than 18 hours when the body was discharged from the hospital.
