The man, ComfortDelGro taxi driver Alvin Sin, told citizen journalism portal Stomp that he was dining at the Chong Pang Food Centre in Yishun around 11.45am on Friday (19 Feb) when he spotted another hawker centre patron bleeding profusely.

Mr Sin recalled: “I was having lunch when I suddenly saw a man who was sitting near a food stall with a lot of blood coming out of his nose non-stop. I ran to a drinks stall to get ice and a towel to help stop the bleeding, and immediately called 995 for the ambulance.”

Mr Sin shared that the bleeding man, a 54-year-old suffering from heart problems, was subsequently conveyed to the hospital. He added: “His brother thanked me for saving his life.”
