The strange spate of needles sticking out of Hong Kong bus seats continued on Tuesday, when the sixth such needle in less than a week was found on a KMB bus. The fresh case was reported at about 8.15am. The double-decker was operating route 46 and about to leave the terminal at Lai Yiu Estate, Kwai Chung, heading to Jordan.

A KMB spokeswoman said a passenger spotted the needle, about an inch long, planted in a seat on the vehicle’s lower deck and told the driver. The bus had no CCTV camera, she added. No one was hurt. “KMB is highly concerned about the repeated findings of needles, and severely condemns the moves because it may hurt our passengers,” she said. This comes as police investigate five similar cases, all on KMB buses.

that is pretty dangerous. if someone sat on it the needle would poke right through the skin. KMB should investigate this issue and find out the cause of the incident.
