Praise for medic who helped man in accident
When Private Ong Liang Kun was on his way to his camp at Paya Lebar Air Base on Sept 23, he witnessed a collision between a taxi and a motorcycle.
While the 19-year-old noticed that many passers-by chose to ignore it, it was the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Medical Corps Pledge he took months ago which prompted him to help.
In a post on the Singapore Army Facebook page on Tuesday, the full-time national serviceman shared his account of the incident, which happened at a cross-junction between Hougang Avenue 3 and Eunos Link at about 7.30am.
The service medic said that words from the pledge came to mind: "I will save lives, reduce suffering, show care, concern and compassion."
SAF MEDICAL CORPS PLEDGE
I will save lives, reduce suffering, show care, concern and compassion.
