  1. Jin scary, pushed down by school trainer as part of some disaster management training. I've never heard of such training, making people jump down from a school building. Parents must be devastated. Other students watching will require psychological counseling. RIP. Watch video at your own discretion. -------------------------------------------------------- https://deccanchronicle.com/nation/current-affairs/130718/19-yr-old-girl-dies-disaster-preparedness-drill-coimbatore-n-logeswari.html Coimbatore: A 19-year-old undergraduate student died when she jumped off the second floor of her college building during a disaster preparedness drill in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu on Thursday evening. N Logeswari was a second year student pursuing Bachelor in Business Administration (BBA) course at Kovai Kalaimagal College of Arts and Science at Narasipuram. Around 4 pm on Thursday, students of the college were being shown how to escape if disaster struck. A video of the training session showed Lokeswari perched on the sunshade of the second floor balcony, when the trainer Arumugan, standing next to her, was telling her to jump. Eyewitnesses say Logeswari was reluctant and did not want to but was prompted repeatedly by the trainer. After a while, the trainer pushed her and she tumbled down hitting her head on the sunshade of the first floor. Though students standing on the ground were holding a net for Logeshwari to land safely, she crashed to the ground after hitting the sunshade. According to reports, Logeswari was rushed to a private hospital in Thondamuthur, where she was administered first aid. She was referred to the state-run Coimbatore Medical College Hospital, where she was declared "brought dead". The police have sent the body for postmortem and the family has been informed. Trainer Arumugan has been taken into custody by the police and a case for causing death due to negligence has been filed against him. College authorities told the police that the drill was conducted by the National Disaster Management Authority of India (NDMAI). Meanwhile, NDMA has clarified that Arumugam was not authorised to conduct such a drill.
  2. SINGAPORE - The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and Police were alerted to a cable car incident at Sentosa this evening. According to a tweet by The New Paper at 7:02pm, an empty cable car fell at Siloso Beach. "Worker trapped inside another suspended car. SCDF and police on site, rescue operations underway," TNP tweeted. A second tweet at 7:27pm stated that the worker had been rescued. SCDF later released a statement at 7:30pm confirming that its officers were onsite. "A cable car cabin undergoing commissioning fell during testing. There was no one onboard the cabin," SCDF said. "There was an engineer in another cabin which was unaffected. "The cabin has since been moved safely to Imbiah Station and the engineer is fine. There are no casualties." Members from SCDF's Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team were also at the scene on standby. SCDF added that the existing cable car line was unaffected and remains in operation. - See more at: http://news.asiaone.com/news/singapore/sentosa-cable-car-line-falls-scdf-and-police-activated#sthash.RyScoNyM.dpuf
  3. The sad incident happened last year and the report on the ST report on the state coroner's findings was published two weeks ago. MCFers who are staying in old high-rise apartment do take serious note that some of the railing gaps may be wide enough for toddlers to squeeze through. In addition there might be stupid railing or parapet designs with horizontal bars/gaps which allows toddlers or children to climb over. From Straits Times: http://www.straitstimes.com/breaking-news/...s-life-20130321 Toddler fell to death two months after maid saved his life Published on Mar 21, 2013 10:07 AM Twenty-one-month-old Eric fell to his death after squeezing through the bars of a balcony on the fourth floor of a condominium unit. -- ST PHOTO: SEAH KWANG PENG By Khushwant Singh LAST April, a toddler was saved as he was about to fall from a fourth-floor balcony. Two months later, he was not so lucky. Eric Wong Yu Hao, a year and nine months old, fell to his death after squeezing through the bars of the balcony at a Hillview Green condominium in Upper Bukit Timah. State Coroner Imran Abdul Hamid, while saying he found that the death was accidental yesterday, urged those who look after young children to check possible dangers in their homes and put in safety measures. He pointed out that there are online groups offering solutions to make homes safe. "While I don't think anyone can guarantee that the suggested solutions will be 100 per cent effective, at the very least caregivers can have the peace of mind that what could possibly be done to make the home safe for young children, has been done," he said.

  8. Hello bros, Went to pick up my car this evening which was parked in a HDB MSCP since morning and to my horror, I saw my car front bumper almost came off!!! I believe some irresponsible driver must have knocked into my front bumper hard during reverse and drove off. Strange thing is I can't find any signs of dent and crack on the bumper and in fact it is still in quite good condition save for a few fine scratches at the bottom which I believe is from the fall. But on closer look I found the holes on the bumper used to secure with plastic screws were broken. Even on the ground I was able to find a few cracked plastic material tightening screws lying around. But as the lower part of the bumper is still secured to the car front, in the end I managed to push back the whole bumper into position and drove off. I am really at a loss what to do next. In such scenario, should I claim my insurance or just find one workshop i can it repaired? By the way, I am at full NCD so this will surely be reduced isn't it? Given my scenario, approximately how much would it cost to repair (ie. no dent no real scratches just the tightening part is on)? Are there any workshop to recommend that opens on Saturday? I am staying around Pasir Ris area. And I believe I can still drive slowly to the workshop. Any advise what i should do ??? Appreciate any advise. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hopefully the family don't sue SCDF SINGAPORE - An American hotel guest at the Swissotel The Stamford died from a fall from a height of at least 60 storeys in the wee hours of the morning on Sunday. The 40-year-old, whose identity is withheld by the hotel to respect her family's privacy, landed on an inaccessible metal parapet three storeys from the ground level, said The Straits Times (ST). On Sunday at about 4.10am, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) received a call for assistance at Raffles City along Stamford Road. The woman was found by paramedics to have suffered multiple injuries. According to ST, the woman was thought unlikely to survive the impact of her fall, which delivered a 'severe blunt force trauma', damaging also the parapet. When they got to the scene, they could not reach her where she landed on the parapet near the 24-hour Starbucks coffee joint at Raffles City. They had to access a staircase to get to her and retrieve her body using safety harnesses and rescue lines. As they approached her, parts of the parapet gave way and her body fell to the ground, landing outside Starbucks. No customers or employees were standing outside, at the spot where the body landed, at the time. Police are still investigating and have classified the case as an unnatural death. A hotel spokesman said the hotel extended its deepest condolences to her family and friends. It is also helping the police with investigations. The Swissotel The Stamford is the tallest hotel here at 73 stories and one of South-east Asia's tallest. Business as usual Starbucks said the woman's fall had damaged the roof of its outdoor seating area and caused water leakage. However, it is business as usual for the cafe, although the outdoor area is currently closed for repairs. A Raffles City spokesman told ST that retail operations were as usual at the mall.

    Con Job & He Fell For It...

    Obviously he was conned but how exactly was the conman able to come out with the frightening details on the first try? [confused] From STOMP: http://singaporeseen.stomp.com.sg/stomp/sgseen/this_urban_jungle/956652/man_freaks_me_out_by_magically_making_torn_piece_of_paper_whole.html Posted on 18 Feb 2012 Tricked into giving over $400 to man who makes torn paper whole again STOMPer Eric recounts how he got conned of over $400 by a man who predicted several things about the STOMPer accurately, and 'freaked' him out by making a torn piece of paper whole again. Eric wrote: "This happened on Feb 16 (Thursday) during lunch time. I was parked along Kranji Loop outside Chop See Mui Eating House when a man approached me. "He sat beside me in my car and started talking to me about my past, present and future. "Before that, he wrote something on a small piece of paper and asked me to hold it in my fist tightly. Then he asked me 5 questions: What's your favourite colour? I said green; What
  11. TTSH: Patient fell off the bed for his own good. Me thinks that if TTSH is sued, it should be liable for at least 80% of damages sustained as a result of the fall to Ivy Teo's 74yr old father (Mr Teo). References (Published ST forum: 08Feb2012): Patient falls after wife's request goes unheeded Patient reminded to use call bell if he needed help [img source] Reasons: BOTH Family and hospital had noted the fall risk of the patient to be high. The family, by their judgement had explicitly asked the hospital to raise all 4 cot sides of the bed to prevent against the patient falling. The hospital refused/ ignored their request thinking that they knew better and insisted upon keeping the 4th cot side lowered. The fact that TTSH was aware of Ms Teo's father's multiple strokes meant that there would be a level of uncertainty regarding his behavior. The hospital was thus presumptuous to assume that since "Mr Teo had consistently demonstrated the ability to call for nurses' assistance via the call bell at his bedside" that there would be little chance of Mr Teo attempting to get up without sounding the call button- a repeat stroke/ delirium being of increased probability. Whilst "raising only three of the four cot sides of the bed as this has been shown to help them feel less anxious or 'trapped', and also reduces the chance of a serious injury should they attempt to get down from the bed unassisted", another key feature of falls prevention should be the direct observation of patients; and it was this important feature that the TTSH high fall-risk ward lacked. It might be argued that but for the lowering of the 4th cot side, Mr Teo would not have fallen since the time taken for a patient to fall from a bed with all sides up would obviously have been longer and the attempt much more visible than the same scenario but from a bed with one cot side down; the severity of injures resultantly sustained not withstanding. Given the explained short duration in which Mr Teo sustained his fall, the nurse would have easily heard/ noticed Mr Teo's actions and taken immediate remedial action to prevent such a fall/ assist him as necessary. Keeping in mind that most of the ward patients would have been stroke patients of poor eyesight/ senior age and possibly disorientated due to the dim light of night, more hospital staff should have been in attendance so that someone would always have a constant eye on the patients, most of whom would have had 1 cot side down by hospital policy, and especially so in a 'high fall risk' cubical/ ward; an adequate staffing system should have been in place so that when one nurse attends to a patient, an assistant is present to watch over the patients, especially in a 'high fall risk' cubical/ ward. Notwithstanding the fact that the 4th cot side was down due to hospital policy, Mr Teo sustained his fall whilst in a 'high fall-risk' cubicle at TTSH. It would be the duty of the hospital as part of its care of the patient to ensure the safety and treatment of patients within its care. Mr Teo fell due to a lapse in the provision of care by the hospital and as a result of this lapse in care compounded by inflexible hospital policy and lack of interest in the concerns, reservations/ suggestions of immediate relatives; other accessory comfort/ fall prevention measures notwithstanding. As a result of his fall that night, Mr Teo "sustained a cervical injury, which led to further weakness in his limbs" " He suffered further weakness to his limbs and could no longer sit up or stand. He also could not eat or relieve himself unaided. He had to be fed blended food and had a catheter inserted. For days after the incident, he was stressed and often delirious. A few days later, he had another stroke." Given the trend of events, I feel that TTSH should compensate Mr Teo at least 80% of his assessable damages sustained as a result of the fall in TTSH's 'high fall risk' cubical/ ward which no doubt was due to TTSH's lapse in it fall prevention precautions as a result of a possible staff shortage in the attendance of patients and blatant ignorance to the concerns of patient's relatives, most of whom would have known the patient's nature, character and personality change post illness for the most part of their lives. PS: As a side note, the Medical Board Chairman (TTSH) said "raising only three of the four cot sides of the bed as this has been shown to help them (patients) feel less anxious or 'trapped'": if the mindset of patients is so compromised such that they even feel 'trapped' in such a bed, then wouldn't more nursing staff be needed deployed to care for these patients rather than excuses and high lofty ideas about patient welfare be bandied around by professors? The fact remains: the patient fell, hurt his spine and became paralyzed. Stressed by his condition, he suffered another stroke and is now totally disabled and bed-bound. "An old man falling while in the care of a hospital shows lack of care." ~ how true is this statement. Sometimes, in Singapore, its just not economically productive to say, yes we're sorry.

  15. Can someone explain the logic to me? When the benchmark rises, their pay goes up. When the benchmark decreases, shouldn't their pay drop as well? Pay adjustment deferred Reason: Private sector benchmarks used to calculate pay have fallen By Li Xueying A PLANNED adjustment of the pay of Cabinet ministers and top civil servants to align it with salaries in the private sector has been deferred - for the third time. The adjustment was to have been made in January last year, but was deferred then, and again last November, because of the weak economy. A statement from the Public Service Division (PSD) said the Government will monitor economic growth and movement of the pay benchmarks 'before making any subsequent decision on when to implement the salary adjustment'. The deferment applies to administrative service officers, and those who hold political, judicial and statutory appointments. Explaining the deferment despite a roaring economy this year, the PSD said the two private sector benchmarks it uses to decide the pay of these officers had fallen. The first benchmark - 2/3M48 - pegs pay to two-thirds of the salary of the 24th highest earner in a group comprising the top eight earners from six selected professions. This benchmark is used to determine the pay of entry-level ministers and senior permanent secretaries. The second benchmark - 15P32 - pegs pay to that of the 15th top earner aged 32 in the same six professions. It is used to decide the salaries of entry-grade Superscale administrative service officers. Read the full story in Thursday's edition of The Straits Times. xueying@sph.com.sg
  16. She lost control of her motorbike during a lesson and plunged two storeys. Miss Nur Amalina Md Juffri was having her fourth lesson at the Singapore Safety Driving Centre (SSDC). She was navigating a bend on the open-air circuit which is on the fifth-storey roof. Ten minutes into her motorbike lesson, she accelerated instead of braking and hit a 1m high wall. The impact flung her off the motorbike. She then crashed through the steel mesh between the fence and wall, and fell onto the third-floor ledge. Officers from the Singapore Civil Defence Force used ropes and a stretcher to lift Miss Nur Amalina to the third storey where an ambulance was waiting. A manager at the SSDC told The New Paper that the centre immediately secured and strengthened the steel mesh to prevent another accident from occurring. The centre is also considering raising the height of the wall and putting up warning signs as riders approach the bend. Police investigations are ongoing.

    Finally our Petrol prices fell!

    Fast to increase slow to reduce... At least they are human enough to lower down the prices. Tue, May 18, 2010 AsiaOne By Tony Ng PUMP prices fell by four cents last night. A litre of 92- and 95-octane petrol now costs $1.777 and $1.837 respectively. A litre of 98-octane petrol goes for $1.920. The price of diesel remains unchanged at $1.333 According to a Straits Times report, Esso made the first move in reducing its prices by four cents a litre. This was followed by Singapore Petroleum Co and Caltex. Shell was the last to adjust prices at 7pm. The reduction in pump prices come after a dip in oil prices that occurred at least a week ago. An AsiaOne reader, sukhoi27, has been monitoring crude oil futures since a week ago. sukhoi27 noted that since crude was down as much as 14.5 per cent within one week, oil companies should be making price adjustments.
