A 20-year-old student from the National University of Singapore (NUS) was hit by a public bus on campus and may lose three of her toes. Miss Zheng Wen Qian was at a bus stop in front of the Computer Centre at the NUS Kent Ridge campus last Tuesday at about 2pm when the accident happened. The police said they received a call around that time asking for assistance. An ambulance was also deployed to the scene and Miss Zheng was taken to the National University Hospital (NUH) with "a serious injury", said a Singapore Civil Defence Force spokesman.
