Dear A.S.S. Editor


An Indonesian news portal, Bali Post, have reported that a Singaporean doctor has died after diving near Bali Island on Wednesday morning. The Singaporean was named as Dr Wong Yu Yi, 48, who was diving at Bali's Padangbai with a guide and two others at around 9am.

While diving to about 20m, Dr Wong signalled to her guide that she needed to resurface. The guide followed her up. When the pair reached the surface, Dr Wong had lost consciousness. The guide, together with the other two divers, then used a speed boat to transfer Dr Wong back to land and subsequently to the Penta Medica Clinic, where she was subsequently pronounced dead on arrival by local doctors. The cause of death have not been revealed.

News reports indicated that Dr Wong worked at CSK clinics at Novena Medical Centre where she specialised in aesthetic medicine.
