Family of two brothers involved in Tampines road accident identifies their bodies

The mother of the two boys involved in the gruesome accident on Monday identified their bodies Tuesday morning. She arrived at the mortuary just before 8am surrounded by a group of relatives, friends, and a man who is believed to be her husband. After identifying the bodies, she emerged from the viewing gallery in tears, and had to be helped up. Members of her group waved reporters off when approached. Most of them left shortly after. The two brothers, 13 and seven, who were on a bicycle, were killed after being hit by a cement truck outside Dunman Secondary School, at the junction of Tampines Ave 9 and Tampines Street 45 on Monday evening. The Singapore Civil Defence Force found them dead at the scene. According to The New Paper, the older victim is understood to be Nigel Yap who studied at Tampines North Primary school before moving to Springfield Secondary School.
