    • NSF dies while participating in navigation exercise

      SINGAPORE: A Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) full—time National Serviceman (NSF) died on Tuesday during a navigation exercise.

      Specialist Cadet (SCT) Ee Chun Sheng, 21, was found unconscious at about 5.11pm while participating in the exercise at Ama Keng Training Area at Lim Chu Kang.

      An SAF medic went on site and tried to resuscitate SCT Ee at about 5.15pm. The serviceman was evacuated via a safety vehicle to the Tengah Air Base Medical Centre and arrived at about 5.39pm where an SAF doctor attended to him.

      SCT Ee was then sent by ambulance to the National University Hospital (NUH) at 6.05pm and arrived at 6.32pm. SAF doctor and medic continued to resuscitate him enroute to the hospital.

      SCT Ee was pronounced dead at 9.03pm at NUH.

      The Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) and the SAF extend their deepest condolences to the family of the late SCT Ee. The SAF is assisting the family in their time of grief and is investigating the incident.

      It was a topo exercise, won't be at MUTF. Ama Keng Road is north of Tengah Air Base, the training area might be inside there.

      SP takes time to warm up, and they need a clear landing site to land or even call for heli-evac. Plus the fuel to power the SP is too costly, an ambulance will be better. Then again, the medic is probably following the "chain of command" by sending to the medical centre first.
