The savage, brutal, barbaric killing of a lady by Dr Death, Dr Neoh after a minor procedure in the ward has shocked the planet. He injected her with Tracium which is the same poison used by Swango in Columbia Asia Hospital hospital Malaysia. To rub salt in the wound there was no apology, his manslaughter charge was hushed up and he is back working in Columbia Asia Hospital with the same modus operandi. His excuse is that he was possesed by an evil demon. This is dangerous in light of the tension with fundmentalist Muslims as the hospital is American owned. It sends a message that the life of a lady in an Islamic country is worthless compared with that of a precious American. It is remniscent of the powder keg in Sarajevo

Tree branch crashes through NTU hostel roof
Oct 1, 2011

By Lin Wenjian
Three students got an unexpected wake up call yesterday when a large branch came crashing through the ceiling of their dormitory.

A section of roof was brought down and rain came pouring in after the bough broke off the tree in an early morning downpour.

The girls, from China, were asleep in their sixth floor room in Nanyang Technological University's Hall 9 when the incident happened.

Ms Xu Tongyao, 20, said:'Suddenly we heard a loud sound and then things start falling from the ceiling. We quickly got up and ran out of the room.'

A tree branch fell on my car on Tuesday, Oct 25, 2011. I was driving along Simei Avenue just after noon in good weather (absence of rain or strong winds). Front windscreen was smashed and bonnet dented as a result and fine glass shards were deposited all over the front seats and the passengers' bodies. Fortunately I was wearing glasses and my front passenger who was not was unhurt.

Compensation for damages is being sought, but the fear of a similar incident lingers on, especially having to pass the same area almost everyday.

This can happen again to anyone who uses that stretch of road where many trees are planted on both sides as well as in the middle of the road.
What if someone gets seriously hurt? Can something be done?

Uprooted tree disrupts Clementi traffic

Nov 28, 2011

Traffic along Clementi Road was disrupted for at least an hour yesterday afternoon after a tree was uprooted during heavy rain.

Channel NewsAsia viewer Joanne Yeo sent in photos taken at around 5.30pm at the Sunset Way estate, showing the uprooted tree lying across the four-lane road at the estate.

MediaCorp understands contractors were sent in to clear the tree, with police and civil defence officers assisting on-site.

All lanes were cleared within two hours.

Seems like nothing can be done. Trees are falling everywhere. Just be careful and keep an eye out for falling trees.

Singapore is becoming a really dangerous place.

Tree falls onto busy Ang Mo Kio road, hitting car and causing traffic jam

STOMPer Song heard a crashing sound and when the STOMPer went to the window to check, a tree had fallen onto the road, hitting a traffic light and landing on a car.

Wrote the STOMPer (Dec 4):

"I heard a sound and noticed that a tree had fallen and landed on a car around 1.50pm.

"Luckily it seems no one was injured as it landed on the car's boot.

"The other part of the tree hit a traffic light.

The tree surgeons are working daily.

We have to be alert, when driving. Avoid parking under the trees.

Nothing can be done, if a tree falls on the car. Must make sure that the car is covered by a comprehensive insurance.

I believe someone should have to be responsible for such death. Without the trees, there will be lesser accident. Who not the building crashing down on the car, why not the lamp pole crashing down. Why is it so often trees. Many trees are planted and I m sure someone planted it. Do you think the person planted it should at least be Responsible for such an unfortunate dead man. Let me ask u. Do u think u will be responsible if u accidently knocked down a tree. U can't be escape. U will get a fine. A heavy fine. If the tree is not planted there, do u think that man will die. Yes, he will die but not cos by the falling tree. if he die which is cause by his own negligence, it is his fault to cause his own life. However, he is a good man and a good driver. But he was so unlucky to to killed by a falling tree planted by another person. What is the conclusion. Who do u think should be responsible for it. It is not act of god. If the tree is not planted there, he would not die so early.

Yes, you are right. The National Parks Department should be held responsible and accountable.

My point was that they are really working on making the trees lighter by pruning and cutting off the dangerous branches.

Good Samaritan hit by falling tree, suffers spinal injuries

In a rush to offer help after a car crashes into the tree, he failed to notice the danger

Published on Jan 8, 2012

By Carolyn Khew
It was just like any other night on Dec 23 for Mr Lim Jingshun, 30. The education and technical specialist was in his room, surfing the Internet.

Then, close to midnight, he heard the screech of tyres followed by a loud crash. He looked out the window of his living room and saw that a car had crashed into a tree opposite the road from his Teban Gardens Road block.

He went down at once, dialling for the ambulance on the way. Mr Lim was trained as a medic when he was serving national service, and he hoped his skills would be of use in case there were injured people.

When he arrived at the scene, however, he was unaware of the danger behind him - the tree which the car had rammed into. It broke off its roots and hit Mr Lim before he could get nearer to the car.

Excuse me. If a driver hit a tree during a car accident. Wat wil happen. The national park development will fine him $300 for one tree. This is totally nonsense. this is unreasonable. This is bully. Who on earth want to hit the tree to get themselve injured or killed themselve. The fine make no sense. It is an accident. No body want it. If the national park development want to fine us for hitting the tree, that is fine, than if the trees they planted along the road fall and hit or killed any one, should they be Responsible for all causes. It is not the heavy rain or wind. It is the large canopy on top of the tree that long not trim and allow it to grow larger and it can't withstand the wind. When heavy rain losses the ground and with the heavy wind pulling together causes they tree to up root. It is the combination of both. If they have proper maintenance, this would not happen during heavy rain. The number of Unnecessary dead will minimize. Lastly, who should be Responsible for the falling tree that killed the unfortunate driver on the road. Can they answer us. This is still an unsettle issue. I m sure many people are in doubt about it. I m sure many is still confuse about it. I m sure many are quite unhappy about such unnecessary dead cos by such unnatural disaster. It is not natural. It is not act of god. Don't push the blame to god. It is very un professional and irresponsible

Is here to say, if there is a regular maintenance, there would be lesser or minimize break down. There should not be any cutting cost on maintenance. All public transportation should be regularly maintain to ensure the public safety. It reflect the standard and reputation of our country. we pay for the fair for public transport and we also expect a fair return of at least a minimise break down. Many people trust the public transport and sell off their personal car to take public transport to work. Can they ensure that future break down be minimize and have a schedule for regular maintenance regardless of the condition of the train and buses. Can they answer to this

Contractors engaged to cut grass next to footpaths have frequently left the cut remnants behind. The authorities who engaged them seemed to be unaware of such incomplete works or actually did not supervise/monitor such works.

The public are exposed to real hazards when they walk on slippery surfaces and old people are especially vulnerable to hurting themselves this way.

Should we condone such irresponsible acts of the contractors and those responsible? Should the contractors still be paid for partial work done?

Do those graduate haVe any comment sense. Study at school give u education only. You have to apply logic. Pls use your brain and think further. Apply some comment Sense pls. Don't show off your cert and become a fool. Do you know many Senior in ga ver ment or white collar was Sack becos of foolishness. The trees don't just require trimming the branches. The weight of the branches at the canopy is the most dangerous item. During heavy rain, the rain water collected on the branches will add on extra weight to the tree, making it so heavy that some tree give way. Seen they study and understand that the soil weaken the strength and eventually give way. Can the authority act on the top of the trees. Don't just focus on the bottom. Pls look into the whole tree. I don't have me to teach you what to do right. Result proof it. Don't put the blame on the soil the roots etc.... Thank you.

Geylang is more of a worry: Police Commissioner

March 26, 2014

Geylang poses “a clear and present danger to public order”, more so than Little India, said Commissioner of Police Ng Joo Hee (above).

Speaking as a witness at the Committee of Inquiry hearings into the Little India riot yesterday, Mr Ng presented a report covering several issues that had surfaced in the wake of the riot, such as the actions of the first responders and tactical troops, liquor licensing in Little India and the strategies and challenges faced by the police.

But the topic of Geylang was high on Mr Ng’s agenda, as the area has more indicators for trouble than Little India.

He said that 49 cases of rioting, assault and affray were recorded in Geylang last year, compared to 25 in Little India.
