Man Arrested for Driving Motorbike into Changi T2 Arrival Hall

A still unidentified man has been arrested for driving his motorcycle all the way into Changi Airport Terminal 2’s  arrival hall on Wednesday, January 31, 2018. How this man was able to drive his motorbike all the way into what is supposed to be a highly secure area remains unknown.

Police arrested him for driving his motorbike into the basement of the terminal’s arrival hall, where he stopped right outside a McDonald’s restaurant. Photos of the bike, a 400CC Honda Super Four outside the stairs leading to the fast-food place have been posted on social media, showing people looking on calmly.

Fortunately, no injuries ensued from the incident.

The man has been arrested under the Mental Health Act. A video posted by James Kok on SG Night Taxi Drivers’s Facebook page accompanied the photos, and show a young man in a blue shirt , relatively calm but behaving somewhat erratically, in the presence of several police officers.

The Changi Airport Group has yet to make a statement on the incident, however, the biggest concern seems to be for security, since someone on a vehicle was able to get past security controls in a major global airport. Netizens who weighed in on the incident expressed their concerns

Others expressed worries about terrorism or bombing

By and large, Singaporean netizens felt that this incident should be taken seriously.

  1. Thought a prata man said every where Very secure? So how like that? Cant even secure a Motor cycle…dont always think terrorists will always use big trucks or big buses leh….prata can become Nasi Lemak lo. Think out of the BOX! TOAD!

  2. Come on everyone, this is not about saving on parking… this looks so much more like feigned madness and a test of security to see how far a vehicle can get into the terminal before being stopped. It’s time to build barriers at all entrances to our terminals that can stop all kinds of vehicles.
    Of course that doesn’t stop the millions of luggages that could always be potential bombs as well… only thing is the luggage has to be scanned one point or another before reaching the plane tarmac.
