This 23 year-old youth took up a job as a Uber driver because wanted to earn enough to pay for his own school fees.
His journey ended tragically last Sunday at about 4AM when his vehicle skidded and turned turtle along Neo Tiew Lane 3, leaving him in a coma from which he never woke from. He was pronounced dead Friday morning at Khoo Teck Phuat hospital where he was warded.
According to his 54 year-old father, Mr Li, the family received word of their son’s accident from a friend at about 5AM on the date of the accident. Their son had already been in a coma when he came into to emergency ward of the hospital. After medical tests were done, doctors concluded that Mr Li’s son had become brain dead.
At the time of the accident, the younger Mr Li was ferrying a 16 year old and a 18 year old passenger. Both passengers escaped without serious injuries.
