Man rescued from Bedok Reservoir

Man rescued from Bedok Reservoir

PICTURE COURTESY OF MR VINCENT CHONG CANOEISTS and joggers who saw a body floating in Bedok Reservoir yesterday afternoon feared the worst after a spate of drownings there this year. But the people who pulled the man out of the water are now heroes as he turned out to be still alive. Three joggers, who heard a canoeist's shouts for help, combined to call the Singapore Civil Defence Force at 5.52pm. One of the joggers, Mr Andy Koh (below), was about to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the man before realising that he was still breathing. The man was taken to Changi General Hospital and the police are investigating the matter. Read the accounts from Mr Koh and the other joggers in The New Paper today (Oct 11).
