SINGAPORE – The two women who died when their car plunged into Alexandra Canal on Sunday (Jan 24) night have been identified as Madam Yep Lay Choo, 51, and her daughter, Ms Kimberly Poon, 22.

Madam Yep’s husband, Mr Robin Poon, 50, who runs a car repair business, said he did not know what had caused this unfortunate accident.

“I’m just lost,” he told The Straits Times.

He was at the morgue on Monday morning with relatives to collect the victims’ bodies.

Mr Poon said the family had gone for lunch in the afternoon at an Italian restaurant at Hotel Vagabond in Syed Alwi Road, followed by a foot massage.

They then went their separate ways for dinner as Mr Poon had an appointment.

“That was the last I saw them,” he said.

Eyewitnesses told The Straits Times that the car emerged from the carpark of Valley Point Shopping Centre in River Valley Road at around 9pm. It drove straight into the bushes next to Alexandra Canal before hitting the water.

SINGAPORE – A car reportedly plunged into Alexandra Canal on Sunday (Jan 24) night, with two people believed to be inside.

Eye witnesses told The Straits Times that a silver sedan emerged from the carpark of Valley Point Shopping Centre in River Valley Road at around 9pm.

It drove straight into the bushes next to Alexandra Canal before hitting the water.

A 33-year-old man, who saw the accident happen but declined to be named, told The Straits Times: “I heard a loud bang as the car hit the barrier before it went straight into the canal.”

The police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force arrived shortly after, as about 200 people gathered near the canal and the mall to see what was happening.

A floodlight was installed and a ladder placed at the spot where the vehicle was believed to have entered the water. Two bodies have been retrieved from the canal. The car has yet to be recovered.

Woman killed when horse fell on her. In Singapore.

It was Grandma’s first ride on a horse and it was her last…

Birthday celebration turns tragic after grandmother, 73, falls off horse, which falls on her

By JUDITH TAN

She was 73 years old and was game to try anything new.

This time it was horse-riding.

It was her first time in the saddle – and, unfortunately, it turned out to be her last.

Madam Lim Ah Boey fell from the horse she was riding and was pinned down by the animal for about 10 minutes.

She lost consciousness and was rushed to hospital, where she died of her injuries.

The accident happened at Punggol Ranch on Saturday.

It was to have been her grandson’s 21st birthday. Madam Lim and her family of 10 had gone to the Gallop Stable chalets for a staycation to celebrate in a big way.

Granddaughter Low Qin Qing, 28, said she was there with her mother when the incident happened.

A 73-year-old woman has died after being pinned under a horse at Gallop Stable’s Punggol Ranch yesterday evening, reported The Straits Times.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it received a call at 5.56pm and was alerted that a Chinese woman had been pinned under a horse at Gallop Stable’s Punggol Ranch.

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) efforts were ongoing when the SCDF arrived. A check found no pulse or breathing. SCDF took over the CPR, and she was taken to Changi General Hospital unconscious. A spokesman for the hospital later said that the woman, known only as Madam Lim, did not survive her injuries.

Gallop Stable, which offers pony rides and horseback riding lessons, also has an outlet in Pasir Ris and runs Horse City at Turf Club Road. The owners of Gallop Stable, Mr Shanker R., and his wife, Mrs Mani Shanker, could not be reached for comment.

SINGAPORE: A car caught fire at a car park at Lorong 4 Toa Payoh on Monday (Oct 19) morning.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) was alerted to the fire at 8.50am, and dispatched a fire engine, a Red Rhino and two fire bikes to the scene.

There were no reported injuries.

Mr Yek Hock Nguong, 42, a kitchen assistant at a coffee shop nearby, heard from his colleagues that a car was on fire. According to them, smoke was coming out from the bonnet of the car. The owner, whom Mr Yek described as a Chinese man in his late 50s, opened the bonnet and realised that there was a fire inside before closing it.

Mr Yek took two small fire extinguishers from the coffee shop, and together with the owner, they tried to put out the fire.

However, the fire grew bigger and the extinguishers ran out. They then used a fire hose but to no avail either.

According to Mr Yek, the SCDF took about 20 minutes to arrive and took about 15 minutes to put the fire out.

SINGAPORE – The driver of a cement mixer lost control of his vehicle on Wednesday morning, sending the heavy vehicle into a tree at Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

Sales engineer Yusri Mohammed Sulaiman, 33, was on his way to work when he saw the badly damaged cement mixer.

“I saw the driver was still inside, so I stopped my car and went to see if I could help him,” said Mr Yusri. The driver appeared unhurt, said Mr Yusri, but he had problems communicating with the driver because the latter did not speak English.

Mr Yusri later took pictures of the damaged vehicle and shared them on citizen journalism website Stomp.

Cabby jailed after he knocks down & kills a woman – who’s a passenger he was trying to pick up

Embedded image permalink

A cabby who knocked down and killed a passenger he was trying to pick up was sentenced to six months in prison and banned from driving for eight years on Thursday.

He ran into Ms Bui Thi Hon Mai, 31, who had just had supper with friends and was standing on the far right lane of Geylang Road to flag a taxi.

After knocking her down, Tan’s vehicle mounted the kerb and crashed into a pillar supporting a row of shophouses.

The Vietnamese national suffered multiple injuries and was pronounced dead on the spot.

His lawyer Peter Ong argued, among other things, that the taxi’s front left tyre had suddenly deflated just before the collision and that the crash was caused by a mechanical fault.

District Judge Low Wee Ping convicted Tan on Jan 12 this year, finding that evidence given by an expert witness for the defence was “speculative”.

He agreed with the prosecution that Tan had been driving at 78km/h before the accident, which was excessive given the speed limit for that stretch of road was just 50km/h.

Tan then swerved across two lanes towards his would-be passenger, but ended up knocking her down, the judge found.

A power outage caused the Sentosa Express train to break down

A power outage caused the Sentosa Express train to break down on Thursday night (Dec 4), trapping 61 passengers, said the Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC).

It said a technical fault caused a power outage and this was the first time such a fault had occurred.

As part of their standard rescue operating procedure, a rescue train was deployed to bring the passengers back to the nearest station, which was Imbiah Station.

The rescue train connected with the failed train and the passengers were transferred to the rescue train without difficulty.

But the rescue train failed to detach itself and that was when the SDC called the Singapore Civil Defence Force for help.

SDC said of the 61 passengers, 11 were Sentosa employees who were off-duty and leaving the island.

SINGAPORE – With more wet days ahead, it is probably a good idea to keep an eye on flood-prone areas in your neighbourhood by referring to national water agency PUB’s website.

Currently, the website lists 48 flood-prone areas and 55 hotspots.

Flood Prone Areas and Hotspots

Flood prone areas are those areas which are low-lying, with a history of flooding. Hotspots, on the other hand, are areas which are not low-lying but had experienced flash flood.

With an ongoing drainage improvement programme, PUB has reduced flood prone areas in Singapore from about 3,200 hectares in the 1970s to 36 hectares today. Click here for a list of the ongoing drainage improvement works.

SINGAPORE – He was here on a holiday with friends when he ended up at the wrong … that the 5m-high marquee structure was erected at Raffles Avenue, near the junction ..

The retiree said she is still seeing a psychiatrist as she was traumatised by what happened to her son.

She described Mr Chui, who had a girlfriend, as someone who was hardworking.

“He was a filial son. He would give us monthly allowance. He was also studying part-time while working,” Madam Leong said.

“Just when he was finally seeing the light and getting a big break in his career, this happened. We have lost someone we could depend on.”

The police had ruled out foul play.

MARQUEE STRUCTURE UNSTABLE, NOT ENDORSED

The marquee structure that toppled on Mr Andy Chui Chun Hin, 34, was found to be unstable, an inquest into his death found on Monday.

It was also not endorsed by a professional engineer – a requirement under the law.

The coroner’s court heard that the 5m-high marquee structure was erected at Raffles Avenue, near the junction of Raffles Avenue and Temasek Avenue.

The aluminium frame had plywood signboards displaying an advertisement for the Audi Fashion Festival, held at the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix Pit Area from May 15 to 19.

Event organiser Mercury Event had engaged Lian Yick Metal Tents to construct five structures – three tentages, a raised platform for catwalks and one cable crossing.

Mr Lee Chow Khoon, the principal structural engineer of Watt Engineering Consultants, endorsed the design drawings of the structures and was satisfied they were safe after an on-site stability inspection.

A misplaced camera, a misunderstanding, an accusation. These ingredients made for blood and tears for a family at Sentosa on Sunday.

Blood, because the father was punched by another visitor after being accused of theft.

Tears, because his young children and those of his assailant wailed as they watched their fathers hitting at each other.

The victim, who wanted to be known only as James, 37, said he had gone to the Trickeye Museum at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) with his wife, two children and in-laws.

The Trickeye Museum showcases around 80 optical illusions in the form of paintings and installations, allowing visitors to take creative photographs of themselves with the exhibits.

After about 40 minutes, James’ wife came across a small camera inside a Nikon case lying on a raised platform at an exhibit featuring a panda.

THE DEATH PENALTY IN SINGAPORE

The death penalty used to be mandatory in the city-state for crimes such as murder, firearms offenses and drug trafficking above a certain volume. This left judges with no choice but to impose capital punishment upon conviction.

But in November 2012 parliament passed the legal reforms which took effect last year.

Under the new legal regime, those facing the death penalty are given the opportunity to ask for resentencing under certain circumstances.

Judges now have discretion to impose life imprisonment on a person convicted of murder if the individual did not intend to kill.

They can also impose a life term on a drug courier who cooperated with authorities in a “substantive way” or is suffering from an abnormality that “substantially impaired his mental responsibility for committing the offense.”

Since the law took effect last year, nine convicts have applied for resentencing and have had their sentences reduced to life imprisonment, the Ministry of Home Affairs said in a separate statement Friday.

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2014/07/18/world/crime-legal-world/singapore-hangs-first-convicted-drug-traffickers-since-2011-moratorium/#.U8k7-0AVn3I

Singapore hangs first convicted drug traffickers since 2011 moratorium

AFP-JIJI

Singapore on Friday hanged two convicted drug dealers in the first executions since a moratorium was imposed in 2011 to review a mandatory death penalty law, the Central Narcotics Bureau said.

Tang Hai Liang, 36, was convicted of trafficking 89.5 grams (3.2 ounces) of pure heroin and Foong Chee Peng, 48, had been found guilty of dealing 40.2 grams of the same illegal drug. Both are Singaporeans.

The bureau said that both men had chosen not to apply for resentencing under a law that took effect last year which abolished the mandatory death sentence in some murder and drug trafficking cases under certain conditions.

“Both of them understood the consequences of their respective decisions,” the bureau said in a statement, adding that they had been represented by counsel during the entire legal process.

SINGAPORE: As of 8pm on Friday (June 20), close to 16,000 people have signed an online petition urging the extension of Zouk’s Jiak Kim Street lease. The iconic Singapore nightclub, whose lease is up at the end of 2014, launched the online campaign today at www.save-zouk.com.

Earlier reports quoted Zouk founder Lincoln Cheng saying he would close the venue if he did not get a three-year extension of the lease from the Singapore Land Authority. The club has been at its current location for 23 years. Its lease was originally due to end in 2012, and has already been extended thrice.

The Save Zouk campaign has gotten support from British music magazine DJ Mag, which ranked the club seventh in the world in its Top 100 Clubs list this year. On its website, it put out a call for supporters to spread the word about the Save Zouk campaign on social media, stating: “Whether you have been to Zouk or are a dance music fan who would like to in the future, please help us to protect this incredible institution.”

Zouk Singapore is currently planning the final installment of its popular dance music festival ZoukOut, according to a media release on Friday.

With six months left of their lease and without confirmation of a long-term extension, the management said they are also planning a series of final parties.

As Zouk fans continue to express their sadness over the club’s possible demise, the club has launched an online campaign to update fans on the latest news about the club, and “reinforce and express club’s firm desire for its lease to be extended”, before it secures and relocates to another venue, the release said.

Earlier on Thursday, influential UK music magazine DJMag – the same publication that ranked Zouk Singapore 7th in its list of top clubs around the world – launched a campaign, with the same name, on social media.

DJMag launched “#SaveZouk”, calling for global support against the closure of the iconic club, by asking people to tweet or retweet with the hashtag.

The campaign began after Zouk founder Lincoln Cheng, 67, reportedly announced his decision to close the venue if it does not receive a three-year extension of lease as requested.

The report also said that Cheng is “tired” of getting short lease extensions for the 23-year-old dance club, which is one of Singapore’s most popular nightspots.

Heard of a long hour raid at zouk last night, to catch enough underaged teens to revoke license, on a CosmicGates night. Too much a coincidence. Really. #savezouk 2014-06-29

When contacted, a police spokesperson confirmed that an operation had happened along Jiak Kim Street, where the club is located.

Tanjong Pagar Town Council posts photos of woman who urinated in lift at Pinnacle@Duxton

Singapore’s Tanjong Pagar Town Council posted pictures of a woman urinating in a Housing Board flat building lift in posters around the Pinnacle@Duxton estate.

On Sunday, the administrator for the Pinnacle@Duxton Facebook page put up a picture of the poster, which included two images of the ponytailed woman. In them, she appeared to be squatting on the floor in the first, and in the second, her standing with a puddle of liquid behind her where the floor had previously been dry.

The incident in question, said the town council in a message accompanying the photos, occurred inside Lift E at Block 1E of the estate located on Cantonment Road in Tanjong Pagar. The woman was recorded in the act at 8:22pm on Friday, 23 May this year, the message said.

“The Town Council has received feedback regarding the stench of urine in the Fireman Lift… this has caused much inconvenience to residents,” the poster read, also including contact details of the town council’s head office address and contact numbers.

Speaking with The Straits Times and The New Paper, Tanjong Pagar Member of Parliament Lily Neo said her town council has adopted this “highly effective” measure on a number of previous occasions. She reportedly said she recalled one instance where the mother of a 16-year-old boy owned up and apologised after posters were put up.

Security staff and passers-by restrain man who allegedly attacked female employee at hotel in Temesak Boulevard

Posted on 14 June 2014

The hotel staff restraining the man (left image) who allegedly hit a female employee (right image.

Stomper Linda and Bryden saw a female employee lying unconscious on the driveway of a hotel in Temesak Boulevard, and other hotel staff and passers-by chasing after and subsequently restraining a Caucasian man at sidewalk nearby.

Bryden added that the man pushed the female staff member down, which caused her to bang her head on the road.

Linda elaborates:

“My husband and I were having dinner at Outback steakhouse in millennia walk when we saw a commotion across the driveway at Conrad Hotel.

“A Caucasian man ran out of the hotel followed by five or six hotel staff.

“They were shouting at him to stop and after tussling, one of the staff did a judo takedown on the assailant. It took a few of them to hold him down.

“At the hotel driveway a female hotel employee was lying unconscious. A man at the scene said she had vision loss.

“Most probably because of the impact to her head from falling on the driveway.

CABBIE TIPS OVER WHEELCHAIR BOUND MAN BECAUSE HE WAS REPORTED FOR ILLEGAL PARKING

Jit Singh, a 60 year old cabbie, tipped a wheelchair bound man out of his chair and left him on the pavement in an act of revenge last week.

Singh was angry at Mr Ng Eng Gee, a 51 year old man who suffers from cerebral palsy, because the latter had reported Singh for illegal parking.

Mr Ng explained that he often reports drivers who park illegally, saying that he felt it was his civil duty.

He also reports them because there have been several occasions in the past when inconsiderate drivers who have parked illegally have blocked the wheelchair accessible ramp, making it impossible for him to pass in his wheelchair.

To make matters worse, after Mr Ng was tipped out of his wheelchair by Singh, passers by simply laughed and moved on.

It was not until the police arrived, 10 minutes later that he was able to get up.

The owner of a limited-edition Ferrari sent his car to an authorised agent for servicing, only to get back a badly smashed ride.

Businessman Lim Chin Liang is suing Ital Auto for an unspecified sum, claiming that his Ferrari F430 Scuderia – apparently one of only eight in Singapore – was damaged beyond repair.

He sent the second-hand car in for servicing on March 15, according to My Paper.

Two days later, Ital’s quality tester took the car out for a post-servicing test-drive, and lost control of it on a wet road.
