Covid-19: Pregnant Singaporean mum and family thankful to be alive after Europe holiday turned into nightmare

SINGAPORE - A dream holiday to Europe that a family had planned for six months turned out to be a nightmare which they are grateful to have survived. Three days after the Ng-Chans returned on March 21, having cancelled two stops because of the looming pandemic, three family members fell ill with Covid-19. Mrs Celine Ng-Chan, a 31-year-old tuition teacher who was 10 weeks pregnant, found out she had Covid-19 after going to a doctor with a sore throat. That night, her two-year-old daughter, Aldrina, came down with a fever as well. In addition, Mrs Ng-Chan learnt later that her mother, Madam Choy Wai Chee, 58, had collapsed earlier that same day because of Covid-19 as well. Only Mrs Ng-Chan’s husband, 32, and her father, 62, escaped infection.  She was hospitalised for four months at the National University Hospital (NUH), spending 29 days on a life support machine that took over the function of her heart and kidneys. That was the longest any Covid-19 patient had been on the extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in Singapore. Madam Choy was also NUH's longest-staying Covid patient, said an NUH spokesman.

Hin Leong founder O.K. Lim slapped with second charge of abetment of forgery

SINGAPORE - Embattled oil tycoon Lim Oon Kuin was hit on Friday (Sept 25) with a second charge of abetment of forgery for the purpose of cheating. Better known as O.K. Lim, the 78-year-old founder of Hin Leong Trading was not allowed into the State Courts due to a respiratory problem. The second charge against him was read in Mandarin to him outside the court. His $3 million bail was also extended. Lim was earlier charged last month with one count of abetment of forgery for the purpose of cheating. The offence carries a jail term of up to 10 years and a fine.

The next mention in court will take place on Nov 23 at 3pm.

Dramatic CBD police car chase to arrest man suspected of drug use

SINGAPORE - A 32-year-old man was arrested for multiple offences, including suspected drug-related offences, after a police chase that resulted in his car colliding with two other cars and mounting a kerb on Thursday (Sept 24). It started at about 11.50am, when police officers on patrol at an open space car park in Bayfront Avenue came across a car with a missing front bumper and approached the vehicle, the police said on Friday. When asked by the officers to alight from the vehicle, the 32-year-old man in the driver's seat ignored the request and sped off instead, which led to a car chase. The pursuit came to a halt when the car mounted a kerb in Anson Road after colliding with a taxi and another passenger car. The man then attempted to flee on foot, but was later arrested for driving under the influence of drugs, dangerous driving causing hurt and suspected drug-related offences. The suspect as well as two people from the passenger car - a 38-year-old male driver and his 29-year-old male passenger - were conscious when taken to the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) after the collision.
