Man killed in Waikiki city bus accident identified

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:58 a.m. HST, Jul 07, 2014

The Medical Examiner's Office identified the 71-year-old Waikiki man who died when he fell beneath a city bus in June as Kenneth Martyn.

Police said Martyn was attempting to board the bus through a side door and fell when the bus pulled away from the curb on June 28. The bus apparently ran over the man's legs, police said. Paramedics took him to the Queen's Medical Center, where he later died.

Martyn's death was the second bus-related pedestrian fatality in three days last month.

On June 26, Dominador Aguilar Jr.,  55, was hit and killed by a city bus before dawn at North King Street, and Russell Lane died in Kalihi.

Kenny was a nice man, always waving to people he saw. I didn't know that he was homeless, or that someone or some persons, heartlessly stole his wheelchair. He is in a better place now, and I hope the people who stole his wheelchair feel all the guilt that they so rightly deserve.

As someone else had stated re: "Side Door". All doors on "The Bus" are SIDE Doors, but was the one he attempted to board the Main Frontal door Or a Rearward door? Sad that he got injured and Died. Just stating "side" does not Explain Much. I have seen Many people Tapping in the Main frontward door as they have run up to the Bus.
