Facebook user, Fique Fiq, shared pictures of his father going to the rescue of a child trapped in a lorry. His dad is of course a real life hero, Encik Hassanuddin from the Singapore Civil Defence’s 4th Division Headquarters. Encik Hasanuddin of course put his knowledge and training to good use to free the child.

The incident happened yesterday (10 Jul) afternoon. The Facebook users post has been shared over 1000 times and has gone viral.

Just in case you can’t see Fique Fiq’s post this is what he said:

“So my parents and I were at my sister’s house and we saw a commotion in the carpark. We thought nothing of it. When we left about 10 minutes later however, the crowd from the initial commotion grew significantly and we overheard about a small child accidentally locking himself in the lorry.

My dad, being a fire officer, went over to provide assistance. He didn’t jump in straight away. Rather, he observed from far to assess the situation before coming up with the best solution to tackle the problem without causing too much physical damage to the lorry.

Next thing I knew, he was on top of the lorry, armed with metal bars and other things he could find to pry the door open. With teamwork and effective communication, the young boy was finally freed and returned back to his parents.

My dad, the hero.”
