SINGAPORE- Two injured Tanjong Katong Primary pupils, who stayed behind in Sabah for medical treatment, have arrived in Singapore.

Emyr Uzayr, 12, was flown back to Singapore with his parents on an International SOS air ambulance on Sunday morning (June 7). The other pupil took a separate flight. Both arrived at about 3am.

Emyr, who suffered a fractured skull and other injuries, went through an operation at the Gleneagles Kota Kinabalu hospital to remove stones and grime from his head wounds. He will undergo another operation on Monday morning.

His parents said doctors have detected another fracture at his lower back.

Said his father, Mr Sadri Farick, 37: "We are relieved to be back and thankful for the help that has been rendered to us but information could have been disseminated faster and more efficiently."
