Cyclist Avoids Humiliation By Blaming Fall on Taxi, Bike Clearly Stuck In Drain

A cyclist, in his bid to avoid getting humiliated after falling off his bike, was seen on video blaming a taxi driver who was near his vicinity of the fall instead. In the video, the cyclist fell down hard onto the pavement, but it was clearly seen that his front wheel got caught on a drain cover by the road. But as everyone else had seen from the video, the cyclist clearly fell of his own accord, as he had overtaken a stationary taxi, and the taxi was not even moving between the time he overtook it and fell.

OLD MAN PUSHED WOMAN OFF PLATFORM, AFTER SHE TOOK EXPIRED BREAD FROM HIM

A sub-contractor in charge of disposing unwanted bread for a company was jailed for five months after pushing a woman off a 0.8m high platform at their workplace. The push caused the woman to fracture nine ribs in the fall.

The man, Toh Chai Kian, 74, pleaded guilty to the charge of causing grievous hurt in the incident in October last year at the loading and unloading bay of Gardenia Foods at Pandan Loop. In the incident, the woman, tan Souk Bee, 64, was at the bay when she picked up a bag of bread from Toh's tray. Toh became unhappy, so she placed it back. However, a quarrel broke out between the pair, and she walked away.

Toh then ran to the woman and pushed her on her back with such force using both his hands, that she lost her balance and fell off the platform. Toh then walked away without helping her up. The pair did not know each other before this incident.

HEARTLESS NTUC STAFF DID NOT HELP WOMAN WHO FELL & INJURED HERSELF

Just got home from Fairprice at Zhongshan Mall. Witnessed a painful scene while I was about to proceed to the self checkout with my groceries. A lady shopper, guess she's around mid-fifties, slipped and fell behind me and was struggling to get up. She complained of the severe pain in her right arm coz she fell on it and was worried she might have a fracture. I took the ice pack from the ice box to apply on her arm and she was able to move her arm after a while, and told me the pain has subsided.

I was very disappointed with the staff at the cashier and especially the old man standing in charge at the self checkout counters. NONE OF THEM CAME FORWARD TO CHECK IF THE LADY WAS ALRIGHT OR OFFERED HELP OR AT LEAST BRING HER A SEAT!!! Especially that old man, he just stood far away and didn't even show concern at all!!! Really wonder how the staff are trained and if they are trained at all to attend to such sudden incident. Fairprice authorities please look into this issue!

PART OF CIRCUIT RD HDB BLOCK FALLS OFF, GIANT BOARD SMASHES INTO THE GROUND

At about 6.00am Wednesday morning (19 October 2016), a slab of wall attached at the top of a Circuit Road HDB block 51 fell off and smashed into the ground floor. Fortunately, no residents were in the area when the incident happened but it has shocked residents who were surprised that such an accident could even occur. Local resident Gary shared that Circuit Road estate (Macpherson SMC under Tin Pei Ling) has many elderly residents and they may not be agile enough to avoid such falling objects. If an object from height falls on them, it could cause serious and even fatal injuries to them.
