“He screamed and swallowed little pieces of glass. I saw the chair from far. I saw it drop from above but I thought it was a red plastic bag,” she said. Carlers herself suffered neck pain and whiplash.

Carlers said she was lucky that she was alone with Alex at the time of the accident. “Usually my baby is with me but thank God that day it was after work so my baby was not with me. Now when we drive, right before we go into a tunnel we will look out.”

The Singapore Civil Defence Officers who responded to the accident conveyed Alex to the hospital. The police are investigating the incident.Follow us on Social Media
