Siblings hurt after serious motorcycle accident
They were born four years apart and lived in different countries, but the siblings were close.
On Saturday, both were involved in a serious accident while riding on a motorcycle.
The siblings, Trismond Tang, 16, and Ivon Tang, 20 were on their way to buy lunch when they were hit by a car at the junction between Bukit Batok East Avenue 6 and Bukit Batok Street 23.
The impact caused them to be flung from their bike. It is not clear which of the siblings was riding the motorcycle.
According to Shin Min Daily News, Trismond's left leg was so severely injured that it may require amputation.
His father, who wanted to be known only as Mr Tang, 46, a chef, told Shin Min that Trismond's leg was run over by another car after he was thrown off his motorbike.
Mr Tang said: "The doctor said that after the fragments of bones in the left leg have been removed, his leg will be shorter. If the blood vessels are not functioning properly, the leg may have to be amputated."
His daughter suffered from head injuries and has not regained consciousness. Said Mr Tang of Ivon's condition: "There are blood clots in her brain and she did not gain consciousness even after the surgery was completed"
The siblings were born in the Malaysian state of Pahang. Trismond is having his school holidays and was visiting his sister, who is studying at a private school in Singapore.
He was supposed to return to school today and had even bought the tickets back to Malaysia.
Trismond is a motorbike enthusiast and was seen posing with a motorcycle on Facebook in June.
Miss Tang lives with her father, who has been working in Singapore for the past 10 years.
They have a brother, who is in his 20s and who lives in Malaysia.
Mr Tang said he found out about the accident when he received a call from the National University Hospital, where the siblings are being treated in a high-dependency ward.
He said: "I'm not clear how everything happened and I hope that witnesses come forward and help the police with their investigations."
A spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force said two ambulance were sent to the scene.
The spokesman added that the 16-year-old male suffered a broken left leg and the 20-year-old female had head injuries.
Investigations are ongoing.
