Murphy’s Law : “ Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”
Do you believe in Murphy’s law? Many assumed that this law had been originated from a scientist named Edward Murphy that after his failed science experimentation in front of the crowd in one occasion he blamed the unsuccessful result to his assistant. I will not elaborate into further discussion.
I would like to share some real terrible stories below:
The Passenger Who Just Gone Off the Bus and Died on the Spot
In one ordinary morning, I attended the weekly project meeting in one of the oldest buildings in the Central Business District. Part of the project meeting was about the safety awareness. The project manager together with his safety officer had discussed about some safety tips and set an example about what had happened earlier on that morning. This was about a passenger who just stepped off from a bus and accidentally slipped his foot. This was a nightmare for the relatives and especially the immediate family of a young man who died on the spot. It was not an ordinary accident in an ordinary early Monday morning. His head had been crushed by another bus’ wheel. I got real photos that had been sent thru emails which I supposed to post it here for the sake of the readers to get clearer picture of that incident but I chose not to unless somebody would ask me to upload the images. My stomach almost did not take it and I was about to vomit on what I had seen. One of the witnesses described that incidence with a very loud sound like a coconut fruit that was being forced to squash.
This incident happened just next to the building where we had attended weekly project meeting.
Date of Accident: 1st Quarter of 2007
A Man Riding a Motorbike Hit by a Big Truck
It was so unfortunate to a man who was riding his motorbike without knowing that it was his last day. He was so fast riding his bike and one big truck has crushed him like a ground meat. A friend of mine had sent that amateur shots of images.
Date of Accident: Between 2007-2008
These are real stories. All these unfortunate events that are being associated with the so-called Murphy’s Law have purpose why all these things happened. Sometimes even if we are very cautious and careful in what we do, things could go wrong. The moral lesson here if we cannot avoid it at least by taking extra safety awareness the risk is not that much. For those God-fearing individuals, we need to pray for our safety and focus in everything we do.
I hope this will serve as lesson to everybody.
