The Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) shared on their Facebook page that the incident happened on the morning of 23 December at Jalan Kuching, heading towards Selayang. The woman who stopped her car in the middle of the road had caused a long traffic jam.

A team of police (PDRM), officers from DBKL’s Transportation Management Center (ITIS) and a rescue squad quickly arrived at the scene.

Police approached the driver and persuaded her to exit her vehicle, which she did and then later explained to the officers that she was having a panic attack. Oh, the poor girl! 

Officers then moved her car to the side of the road so that traffic could resume as normal. 

KECOH.. Pagi ni Min dimaklumkan berlaku satu insiden di mana seorang pengguna jalan raya secara tiba-tiba...

Panic attacks can happen at any time, wherever you are.

It’s a feeling of sudden and intense anxiety which could also have physical symptoms like shaking, feeling disoriented, nausea, rapid and irregular heartbeats, dry mouth, breathlessness, sweating and dizziness. 

Though it’s not dangerous, panic attacks can often be very frightening.

So, if you come across someone who is going through it, the least you could do is to be kind and understanding… because that might help them!
