Train station officer to the rescue of parent with three kids


LAST Saturday, my wristlet containing all my cards and cash fell into the gap between the door and the platform at Chinatown MRT station.

In a panic, and with my three children in tow, I rushed to the control station to inform the officers.

The empathetic and helpful officer went the extra mile by offering me his own cash to tide me over for the day. When I visited the station to collect my wristlet the next day, he remembered my name.

The officer, Mr Kelvin Choo, deserves all my praise and gratitude.
