  1. Woman lost nearly 3 litres of blood after waterslide tore her uterus https://www.asiaone.com/world/woman-lost-nearly-3-litres-blood-after-waterslide-tore-her-uterus In a horrific case of a holiday gone wrong, Toni Steedman found herself bleeding heavily when a free-fall waterslide left her with her uterus ripped. While the incident took place back in 2017, Steedman is sharing her experience now in response to recent events that saw a British tourist break his neck on a similar ride. A mother of two, Steedman and her husband had brought their family to Tenerife, Spain to celebrate his birthday. They had planned to spend the day at Aqualand Waterpark, which is known for its array of waterslides, especially the Kamikaze - a 22m vertical descent that also happens to be the tallest waterslide in Europe. However, the slide was so steep and the velocity of the ride so great that water was forced into her body, resulting in a 7cm tear in her uterus. "The slide was really fast and when I hit the water at the bottom I felt something just burst inside me. When I stood up I felt as though I needed the toilet but as I moved blood started pouring from between my legs. It was making a trail as I walked from the pool," she recounted. Steedman was immediately brought to a hospital three minutes away, where the doctors quickly staunched the bleeding and gave her three blood transfusions. She was then sent to a bigger hospital further north where she underwent surgery to repair the tear. Due to the severity of the accident, Steedman wasn't able to leave the country for more than a week and was out of work for two months. She was also unable to claim insurance as she had not informed her insurance company that she would be going away. Steedman also stated that the lifeguards had neglected to tell her any of the safety precautions such as to cross her arms and legs, which would have prevented the accident from happening in the first place. In a viral video from July 8 this year, David Briffaut and his girlfriend can be seen sliding down head-first on mats at Aqualandia in Benidorm, Spain, but the moment they hit the water, his head can be seen snapping forward. It turned out that he had broken two vertebrae on the spot and had briefly lost consciousness. Despite the prompt medical attention, he continues to be on life support and medics have warned that he may be paralysed from the chest or waist down. Even though Steedman had been relatively lucky, has since recovered from her injury, and is still able to have children, Briffaut will require a lifelong caretaker. As the full extent of Briffaut's injuries remain unclear and he requires more surgeries, his family has since set up a crowdfunding page to help alleviate the costs of the procedures. The page has raised more than S$76,113 at the time of writing. Both waterparks have long been under fire, with unhappy holidaymakers leaving negative reviews on their page. In a statement, Aqualandia spokesman Maria Jose Marcos said, "We have video footage which plainly shows how the 23-year-old man did not follow the guidelines for Splash. Our lifeguard team informed him of the rules of the ride and he didn't obey them. So, Aqualandia cannot be held for the consequences of visitors failing to follow safety rules. Of course, Aqualandia helped him and his friends in every way and our insurance covered all the medical attention. Aqualandia has a long history - 34 years - and safety is our top priority." rainercheung@asiaone.com

    Lost Wheel Nut Key

    Hi, Does anyone know where to get wheel nut lock key? Lost the original key for my HRE wheels and can't unlock/remove the wheels...
  3. Dear bros I have been using my hotmail as the recipient for all notifications. It has had no issues for almost one year. During this time, I didn't change any settings. Then suddenly over the hari raya weekend, I lost my notifications. A friend suggested I uncheck all notifications and retry, no avail. It seems that hotmail is 'allergic' to emails from mycarforum! There's no notifications of any sorts from PM, to topics etc. I had this before with another forum, and I had to swop to a different email provider. I have even gone into the exceptions options to add MCF as a safe sender - no avail. Does anyone else have this issue? PS: I still see the notifications in the forum itself, just no email notifications. Would appreciate any help or tips, thanks!

    Nokia's lesson to the world

    http://www.desispy.com/technology/we-didnt-do-anything-wrong-but-somehow-we-lost-nokia-ceo-steve-ballmer/551817/ Nokia has been a large and respectable company. They didn’t do anything wrong in their business, be that as it may, the world changed too fast. Their rivals were too capable. Other companies like Samsung, Sony, Intex, Lava, Micromax comes up with advanced features to attract the audience in Mobile Industry. this is a very very expensive and painful lesson even singapore is doing well today we must continue to excel and change else we will be left behind and obsolete

    Well today I lost my wallet

    My wallet that is. And before I actually realised I'd lost it I had a phone call to say it had been found. Unfortunately I couldn't thank the person who found it because the phone number she left wasn't working. But just to say thank you to the cleaner on the fifth floor of Ng Teng Fong hospital for your staightforward honesty. Have a happy life.

    Father and Son Climb 900m Mountain

    Hats off to them P.s its not father and son. Sorry for misleading title Chinese boy, 11, who lost legs in car accident, just fails in attempt to climb sacred mountain with his hands http://m.scmp.com/news/china/society/article/2018383/chinese-boy-11-who-lost-legs-car-accident-just-fails-attempt Chinese boy Gao Zhiyu, 11, climbed 900 metres up Mount Lao, in China’s eastern Shandong province, before having to stop because of severe blister. Photo: SCMP Pictures. A Chinese boy of 11 who lost his legs in a car accident has just failed in his attempt to climb to the top of a more than 1,100 metre-high sacred mountain – just using his arms and hands, mainland media reports. Gao Zhiyu had been trying to reach the summit of Mount Lao, the birthplace of Taoism, in Qingdao, on the coast of the Shandong Peninsula, Qingdao Evening News reported. He managed to reach a height of 900 metres – using wooden boxes held in his hands as “shoes” as he climbed the route made of stone steps – before giving up his attempt because of severe blisters on his hands. “If I was given more time, I could slowly climb to the summit ... next time, I must make it to the top,” Gao, from Qingdao, was quoted by the newspaper as saying. He was accompanied on his first attempt at climbing a mountain by Chen Zhou, a man who also lost both his legs in an accident. Chen has walked to more than 700 cities on the mainland on his hands. The self-help lecturer has also climbed to the top of more than 100 mountains, including Mount Tai and Mount Huang. Chen said he had felt obliged to try to give Gao a little support when he heard about his planned climb up the mountain. He said it was a shame that Gao did not make it to the summit. “I don’t think he is trying to conquer nature, nor other people. All the challenges he takes on are just to conquer his own fears about his limitations,” he said. Bad weather during their climb, including a thunderstorm and heavy rain, had make their attempt very difficult, the report said. The steps up the mountain were also steep and winding, and became slippery from the rain. After they had reached a height of 500 metres the climbers both needed to take a rest after almost every turn. The two began their climb at 9.30am on Saturday, but by 3.30pm Gao had to admit defeat because of the severe blisters on his hands.

  15. Hi all, Will like to ask if any of you saw the tortoise soft toy in the attached pic. I bought a pair of them (total 4 tortoises) with one pair smaller than the other. It has been with us since I proposed to my current wife 10 years ago. Today during the struggle of getting my daughter out of her baby seat, my girl dropped the tortoise and my wife did not notice. Will appreciate if whoever picks it up is willing to return it to us. I know there are probably other toy tortoises out there but this one has sentimental value. Many thanks in advance.
  16. Dear All, This morning I found a Men's size watch at one of the Sengkang multi stores car park. I have already passed it to Sengkang police station and left a note at the parking lot that I found the watch. If you are the owner pls go directly to the police station to claim it. Mod, please help to close the thread. Thank you!
  17. He kept a cool head but he did not mention NS helped . . . . http://www.malaysia-chronicle.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=319201:lost-for-6-days-on-a-cambodian-mountain-i-kept-going-becos-i-didnt-want-my-parents-to-cry-26-yr-old-spore-trekker&Itemid=4#axzz37FeGJSDc He thought it would be a simple day trek. So Mr Sanjay Radakrishna, 26, decided to scale the highest peak in Cambodia on his own, taking only a 1.5 litre bottle of water, 20 pieces of biscuits - and a graduation gown. He wanted to take a selfie of himself wearing the gown on the summit, which he managed to do after a five-hour trek up Phnom Aural. It stands 1,813m above sea level. But the descent took a turn for the unexpected that caused the National Institute of Education undergraduate to end up lost for six days. As Mr Sanjay was heading down in the afternoon, it started to rain and he decided to jog down the narrow trail. But he tripped and fell down a slope about 10m from the trail. When he tried to get back to the trail, he realised that he had lost his bearings. And so began his adventure in the wild. The Singaporean had arrived on June 26 in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh, where he met a friend. He had been planning the trip since the beginning of the year with the aim of climbing the country's highest peak. On June 28, he was pillioned on a motorcycle to Srae Kan 3, a village near the foot of the mountain. But he aborted his plan to climb Phnom Aural the next day as it was raining. At 7am on June 30, he set off up the mountain after notifying the people at his homestay, and his girlfriend via text message. Clad in a red shirt, shorts and sports shoes, Mr Sanjay had a watch with compass and altitude functions, a mobile phone, torchlight, camera, mini-tripod, and spare camera batteries. Taking up most of the space in his backpack was a graduation gown he had purchased in advance. "I wanted to take photos in my graduation gown at the summit," he told The New Paper yesterday after he returned to Singapore the day before. "It was a normal climb and I reached the summit after five hours," said Mr Sanjay, who said he has scaled 39 mountains in such countries as Malaysia, Nepal and Croatia, since he was 15. By then, he had run down his phone battery from using its GPS function. Then it started raining, so he decided to jog his way down the mountain trail. SLIPPERY He said: "The path was slippery, and around 1.30pm, I slipped off the trail and fell down a slope for 10 metres into the woods." He could not find his way back to the trail. "The trail was as good as gone. Everything, the trees, looked similar," said Mr Sanjay. His shorts had also been torn in the fall so he decided to take them off. "There was nobody to see me anyway," he said with a laugh. After two hours of looking for the trail, he gave up and took a nap. "I realised I wasn't going to return that day and needed to get into survival mode. "It is not a difficult trek for someone with experience. But the place is not a popular trekking destination so it was quite isolated." That night, he slept "under some rocks". It was about 18 degrees Celsius, so his graduation gown came in handy. "I slept in a foetal position with my gown as a blanket," he said. For the next two days, he waited at an open clearing, hoping for help - perhaps in the form of a helicopter - to come. He was out of luck. So on Day 4, he decided to climb down the mountain by following a stream. "I climbed through the rocks in the river and walked through terrain if the waterfall got too steep," he said. He drank water from the stream but had no food as he had eaten his biscuits on the summit. HUNGER PANGS "I didn't want to risk eating a poisonous plant," said the vegetarian. "When I got hunger pangs, I drank water. But as long as I kept active, I wouldn't think about it." "I wasn't too scared of death. It's okay to die if I was meant to die. Everything happens for a reason," he said. Battling against thick vegetation and insects, he suffered cuts, rashes and bites on his thighs, calves and arms. "I trekked from 6am to noon until it started raining in the afternoon, and slept from 6pm to 6am because it was dark. "I thought it would take 10 to 15 days to reach the bottom. I kept going because I didn't want my loved ones to cry. "When my cousin passed away two months ago, I saw my parents crying so hard, and I can't imagine how they would cry if it were their own son," he said. Mr Sanjay lives with his father, 64, mother, 60, and two older brothers, aged 29 and 36. After trekking for six days, he finally reached flat ground last Sunday morning. He kept walking for an hour and saw a stationary motorcycle. He waited another hour for the owner to return. The man gave him an unripe banana and took him back to Srae Kan 3 village. There, he was given rice and vegetables to eat, as well as pants to put on. The Cambodian police drove him to a town, Kampong Speu, where his brother, Mr Premnathan Radakrishna, 29, was waiting with members of the Singapore embassy in Cambodia. They flew home on Monday afternoon, and Mr Sanjay visited Khoo Teck Puat Hospital for a check-up. Mr Sanjay admitted: "I didn't have a worst-case scenario planned and thought it would be a simple trek. "I didn't do special preparations because I always stay fit and healthy, running daily and trekking up Bukit Timah weekly." Mr Sanjay, who is on a gap year at NIE, said: "This has made me stronger and believe more in myself and my willpower." On whether he would still climb mountains, Mr Sanjay said: "You don't give up just because you failed once." Family, friends worried after he missed flight Mr Sanjay had left some belongings in the Phnom Penh house of his Cambodian friend, Mr Kelvin Hieng, who studies in Singapore. So when he did not return and missed his flight last Wednesday, his friends got worried. Mr Hieng informed the Singapore Embassy in Cambodia and his other friends, who notified his brother, Mr Premnathan, 29, on Thursday morning. "My family was very worried when we found out, but we were also unsure if he was really missing or still climbing after starting last Tuesday because of the rain," said Mr Premnathan, a director at an F&B vending machine company. But Cambodian police confirmed that Mr Sanjay had started off the day before, June 30. Mr Premnathan said: "My parents were very worried, especially since Sanjay is the youngest son." Mr Premnathan flew to Phnom Penh on Saturday to search for his brother. "The people at the embassy were really helpful, and even got 10 local villagers to search the mountain near the trail on Sunday morning," he said. But by that afternoon, Mr Sanjay had reached flat ground some distance away from the trail, and met his older brother later that day. On whether he would allow his brother to climb mountains again, Mr Premnathan said: "I scolded him when we came back, and let him know that although he is confident, he has to behave responsibly, prepare better and inform us of the details beforehand. "But this is his passion, and I would not stop him." -Asiaone Full article: http://www.malaysia-chronicle.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=319201:lost-for-6-days-on-a-cambodian-mountain-i-kept-going-becos-i-didnt-want-my-parents-to-cry-26-yr-old-spore-trekker&Itemid=4#ixzz37FgATKdM Follow us: @MsiaChronicle on Twitter
  18. I lost my birth certificate and need to get a replacement. Do I need to make a police report (like IC)? How long does it take to get a new copy? Mine was the old type-written version and was issued more than 30 years ago. Do they keep my birth info. in ICA? Would appreciate inputs from people who have been in such a situation.

  20. And so I came across a friend's post on Facebook this morning about how he managed to retrieve his mum's mobile phone from someone who took it (whether she misplaced it or what is not the main point, the main point is that he managed to get it back from the person who took it and I'm sure not many of us are that lucky). I personally had my own mobile phone, a iPhone 3GS stolen from me at Parkway Parade many years back. I made a police report, had CCTV footage to back me up but nothing was done. And oh, it was a job done by two guys from China. Ok back to the main topic. I'm sharing it here for awareness as many of us know we can track our phone but have no idea what app to use or how to go about doing it and since he is unable to start a new thread as he hasn't clocked 25 posts, I'll do it for him. Here is his encounter. @y2kjericho86 if you are able to reply, do share with us, or anyone knows of other apps that can help, please share with us too.
  21. Just to share.. I've found my one of my favorite wkend breakfast place. the old joo chiat teochew porridge that was closed earlier this year can be found at old airport mkt. behind the famous hokkien mee.

    Ambulance Do Get Lost

    Hope this wont happen in Singapore My baby died after ambulance driver got lost TWICE, took three times as long to arrive and went the wrong way to the hospital A baby died after an ambulance driver on her first shift struggled to find the child’s home – and then took a wrong turning on the way back to hospital. Amy Carter called 999 after her three-month-old daughter Bella suffered a fit and stopped breathing. But the ambulance took nearly half an hour to reach them because the driver – who was relying on a satnav – got lost. Fearing the same thing could happen on the way to hospital, the frantic mother yelled directions from the back of the ambulance, but the driver went round a roundabout twice before taking a wrong turn. When three-month-old Bella Carter suffered a fit and stopped breathing, her mother Amy frantically dialled 999. But the ambulance crew failed to arrive for 26 minutes and she was dead upon arriving at hospital By the time they arrived at hospital, Bella had not been breathing for nearly an hour and was pronounced dead. Last night, Miss Carter, 24, of Thetford, Norfolk, said: ‘If they had got to her in time she would be alive today.’ More...Father-of-three died after doctors mistook aneurysm for heartburn and sent him home with Gaviscon Two in three new mums feel 'let down' by the NHS: Shortage of midwives means some women get more postnatal visits than others She said that when she called the ambulance, she gave clear instructions that they lived in a new house, in case that led to problems finding it. The ambulance took 26 minutes to arrive – more than three times the target response time. On their way to the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds, Miss Carter gave directions from the back of the ambulance. The ambulance driver attending to Bella - on her first-ever shift as a paramedic - then took a wrong turning on the way to West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds She said: ‘They had a satnav, but it was taking them the long way round. Anyone who knows the area would know to go on the bypass. ‘I was shouting directions, but it was like I wasn’t even there.’ The grieving mother said when she had called the ambulance on two previous occasions, unrelated to Bella’s fit, paramedics arrived in minutes. Miss Carter, who lives with her lorry driver partner Scott Hellings, 24, said: ‘The people who were meant to help failed Bella. I live on a new development, but I gave the operator clear instructions. By the time the ambulance arrived at West Suffolk Hospital, Bury St Edmunds, Bella had stopped breathing for nearly an hour and there was nothing doctors could do to save her ‘It is not hard to find and they had managed it twice before.’ She said she had told them all the doors to the house were open so she could remain upstairs with her sick child when they arrived. Bella's mother Amy Carter is devastated by the loss of her daughter ‘But the paramedics just kept ringing and ringing on the bell,’ she said. ‘I didn’t want to leave Bella, but I had to abandon her and run down and back up two flights of stairs to let them in.’ Miss Carter claims the crew then made jokes instead of devoting all their attention to her daughter. She said: ‘They just talked about what they did at the weekend and complained about their knees and being old when they knelt down on the floor. I don’t think they knew how to deal with me.’ Miss Carter, who has a son aged four, said her daughter’s death has left her so distressed that she is unable to see other babies. ‘I would not wish this pain on my worst enemy,’ she said. ‘Two of my family members have just had babies and I have not been able to go and see them.’ Ambulance bosses have met the family and admitted failings in the tragedy, which happened on March 11. Local Tory MP Elizabeth Truss said: ‘For the ambulance to take so long to arrive is of serious concern.’ The East of England Ambulance Service Trust last night declined to comment. An inquest has been opened and adjourned.

  24. Losing something is always a stressful experience. No matter what the item is, we don't like losing things. Hope she gets back her bunny companion of 17 years. Hmm, Radder . . . quite close to someone here, haha http://www.straitstimes.com/news/singapore/more-singapore-stories/story/desperate-hunt-bunny-lost-train-20141012 After eight hours combing MRT stations along the East-West Line and spending close to $500 on lost-and-found ads, a 23-year-old is still desperately looking for a companion which had been by her side for the last 17 years. Its name is Radder and it is a yellow shirt-clad white rabbit soft toy. Ms Ng, who works as a charity fund-raiser, wrote in an online ad on STClassifieds that the toy is more important than her "wallet, handphone and passport combined". She is offering a reward to anyone who helps her find it, but declined to reveal her full name as she is afraid of getting harassed. Her uncle had given it to her when she was about six years old and it has been with her through thick and thin, Ms Ng told The Sunday Times. She lost the plushie on Sept 27 while rushing out of a train at Outram Park station.
