The driver of the Mercedes Benz, a 46-year-old male, apparently suffered a heart attack while driving, and was unconscious when taken out of the car. The video also shows a man performing CPR on the victim at the scene of the accident. He was taken, still unconscious, to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, where he later died from his injuries.
