An elderly man found lying on the MRT tracks between Tanah Merah and Expo stations on Saturday is in a stable condition.

Mr Koh Chai Seng, 75, was still in an intensive care ward at Changi General Hospital yesterday afternoon, but awake and able to converse with family members.

What remains a mystery is how he ended up on the tracks.

Mr Koh was unable to explain it, but police are reviewing close-circuit television footage and collating eyewitness accounts to determine how it happened.
