This is so dangerous
Throwing rocks at trains is not something new… In fact, rock-throwing has been a problem in other developing countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand.
Recently, a Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM) train conductor has resorted to his own social media account to advise parents to prevent their children from throwing rocks at passing KTM train carriages, which has resulted in cracked windows.

The man, who is also known as Pak Su shared the video on his TikTok account, responding to a question asking why so many KTM trains have shattered windows.
“I’m pleading with you, parents, to kindly tell your children, as well as your family members, friends, and neighbors to refrain from throwing rocks at Pak Su’s train!” he said.
The camera then moves to reveal the extent of damage to one of the window panes, which appears cracked across its surface but otherwise appears to be intact.
He claims that the shattered windows have become a normal thing at this point and that replacing the windows can be very costly. “Please pity the passengers and pity Pak Su,” he said.
“Tell your kids to take care of the public property. All of this is ours, not just Pak Su’s” he added.
His video, which has since gone viral, has received a lot of support from Malaysian netizens who also urge parents to monitor their children.
