A boy was trapped under an SMRT bus along Choa Chu Kang Avenue 5 on Thursday (24 May) morning.
The boy, believed to be around six years old, “sustained serious injuries” and was taken to the National University Hospital (NUH), said the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) in response to media queries.
SCDF personnel, who were alerted to the accident at 9.07am, had found the boy under the bus upon their arrival. Lifting equipment had to be used to rescue him.
According to a Straits Times (ST) report, SMRT informed commuters that its Service 983 bus would be skipping a few stops along Choa Chu Kang Avenue 5 and 6 due to an accident.
SMRT’s “care team has reached out to the boy’s family at the hospital to provide support and assistance”, said SMRT vice-president of corporate communications Margaret Tee.
She added that SMRT is assisting the police in their investigations.
