Another three members of the public received Public Spiritedness Awards from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) on Thursday for their assistance in a road traffic accident that happened last week.

The trio, Soxal crane driver Mr Lee Soon Yang, auxiliary police officer Mr Kalai Chanthiran and bank officer Ms Dani Norain Tawil, had voluntarily stopped to help at an accident scene last Wednesday, where a cabby and his passenger were trapped in a taxi crushed by a tipper truck and mired in wet cement along the Ayer Rajah Expressway.

They join five other members of the public who were last Friday given similar awards, after providing assistance such as using the cranes on their lorries to help lift the tipper truck off the taxi, assisting paramedics on scene and even using their bare hands to scoop wet cement out of the taxi.
