My Grandma fell victim to a snatch-thief

This is my maternal Grandma. I went to visit her yesterday. My Grandma is already in her late 80s. She fell victim to a snatch-thief on Monday. We only got to know about it yesterday afternoon and went over to her place immediately. She's one lucky old woman as the snatch-thief happen to be riding a bicycle. She told us she was pushed from behind and fell down, knocked her head, drifting in and out of consciousness by the roadside. A Malay man with an umbrella came to her aid, and she was carried to a house nearby. Thank you, whoever you may. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

My Grandma, just like any other snatch-theft victims we read in newspapers, happen to be a victim of circumstances. She was walking alone to visit my uncle who runs a sundry shop nearby. She doesnt have much on her except for a bag that contains a bottle of water and her "foong-yau". You can see her left hand is all bruised and swollen. The snatch-thief was after the worthless crystal bracelet she was wearing. It was yanked from her hand when she was unconscious.

My sis was applying ointment on her hand when i reached her house. We've advised her never to walk alone again. My mom have stopped going for morning and evening walks for a long time. I hope those of you staying with old folks can tell them in a nice way that it's not safe to walk the streets alone anymore. Times are very different now. We cant help but be paranoid the moment we leave the house. To the snatch-thief, karma will get back at you one day. Just you wait, you !@#$%^&*((*&^%$#@#$%^&*(
