Really sad news: Singapore actor Aloysius Pang, who was seriously injured while on high key reservist training in New Zealand, is now in critical condition.
According to an update from Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen, "Pang’s condition is very serious and presently he needs artificial life support of his lungs, kidneys and heart"
The accident occurred on 19 January 2018, when Aloysius Pang, a Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) operationally ready armament technician, was participating in Exercise Thunder Warrior.
"Off to serve our country. Back at the end of the month! May not be able to post much when I'm there so (wait for me to return) yeah", was the last he had posted on Instagram...
According to a statement by Ministry of Defence, Singapore (MINDEF), Pang "was carrying out repair works inside the Singapore Self-Propelled Howitzer (SSPH) at Waiouru Training Area, New Zealand when he sustained injuries to his chest and abdominal areas."
He underwent abdominal surgery on the same evening at Waikato Hospital, Hamilton, New Zealand. A follow-up relook surgery was done on 21 January.
Pang's condition was then said to be stable, and his family was with him.
Things sadly took a turn for the worse and Aloysius' condition worsened. According to MINDEF, he required additional surgery, which was completed on 22 January 2019 at 2354hrs (SG time).
"His condition is critical and he is being managed in the intensive care unit", is the latest update from MINDEF.
"Even as the doctors do all they can, our prayers go to CFC (NS) Pang to turn this difficult corner, as well as to his family members for strength...", wrote Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen.
