A 12-year-old boy who was allegedly slashed by his mother, who was later found dead, is still in intensive care at the National University Hospital (NUH) and missed her cremation yesterday morning.

Seven relatives turned up at Mandai Crematorium to bid farewell to the 45-year-old woman, who was believed to have injured her son before taking her own life on Saturday morning.

She was found dead at the bottom of an apartment block in Bukit Timah, where they lived.

Her husband apparently did not witness the cremation, reported Chinese evening daily Shin Min Daily News.
