A Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Full-time National Serviceman, Private (PTE) Lee Han Xuan Dave, 19, a Guardsman from the 1st Battalion Singapore Guards, was found to display signs of heat injury at about 8.35am on 18 Apr 2018. PTE Lee had just completed an 8km fast march in Bedok Camp.

An SAF medic attended to PTE Lee immediately to bring down his core temperature. PTE Lee was evacuated to the camp’s Medical Centre where body cooling measures and treatment were continued by the SAF medical team. At 9.50am, PTE Lee arrived at Changi General Hospital (CGH), where he was warded in the Intensive Care Unit since 18 Apr 2018. Unfortunately, PTE Lee’s condition did not improve in the ICU and worsened during the hospitalisation. PTE Lee was pronounced dead at 5.32pm on 30 Apr 2018 at CGH.

The Ministry of Defence and the SAF extend their deepest condolences to the family of the late serviceman and are assisting the family in this time of grief.
