Attracted by a bag of food she was carrying, a wild boar charged at a 64-year-old woman, causing her to fall and break her hip.
Madam Lin Hui Juan had been on an excursion organised by a residents’ committee to Chek Jawa on Pulau Ubin on Sunday morning when the incident happened, Lianhe Wanbao reported.
After visiting Chek Jawa, the group started negotiating with a bus driver over the fare to take them to the jetty. Then a female wild boar with two piglets appeared and walked towards the group.
Suddenly, the sow charged at Madam Lin, who was carrying a red recyclable bag containing food and water. She fell and was unable to get up.
She was then taken to the National University Hospital for treatment.
