A kind passersby and store employees rushed to the aid of a woman who suddenly vomited and collapsed inside a Daiso store in the Tampines 1 shopping centre, yesterday afternoon.

An eyewitness reported to citizen journalism portal Stomp that the “woman collapsed and looked like she was going through a seizure. She vomited and her eyes rolled upwards. Everyone was shocked and didn’t know what to do, including me.”

A passerby took charge of the situation and helped the woman and her young daughter who was with her. The eyewitness recounted:

“Thankfully, a passer-by came forward and called 995 before turning the woman onto her side. He then asked the Daiso staff to bring cushions and blankets to support her head and to cover her up. He continued to talk to the woman and tried to calm her young daughter who was visibly shaken.”

The eyewitness said that the passerby identified himself as a fireman and assured the woman’s husband that his wife would be alright when the husband arrived at the scene.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) confirmed that it responded to a call for assistance around 4.20pm and that it conveyed the woman to Changi General Hospital via ambulance.

The eyewitness said: “If not for this passer-by, I don’t know what would happen to the woman. She was indeed lucky.”
