He calls TNP after double trouble
Being stuck in back-to-back train disruptions on Aug 17 and 18 prompted him to call The New Paper hotline.
Mr Patrick Loh, who works as a lab technician at a school in the Boon Lay area, was first stranded at Jurong East Station. He was travelling home from work and it took him two hours.
Just a few hours later, the loyal TNP reader of 29 years was horrified when the scene repeated itself.
"I was travelling to work from Khatib Station, and when I reached the station, it was jam-packed," he said. "I was feeling quite angry and frustrated as I was late by 30 minutes."
In another incident, Mr Stallone Goh, 46, was in his company's lorry when he saw an overturned car on the road and another one on a grass patch nearbyat Grange Road last Thursday.
The report was published last Friday.
Another reader notified TNP about a group of lower secondary students hanging out on a 16th-storey ledge at Riversound Residence in Sengkang last Monday.
He sent the video to TNP, hoping it would educate the general public to not endanger themselves like this.
