    26 year old Singaporean university student and part-time lifeguard died of fatigue

    Posted by temasektimes on May 23, 2012
    A 26 year old Singaporean student Tang Songchun (谭松村) (pic left, source: omy.sg) collapsed and passed away yesterday night from fatigue.
    Mr Tang is currently studying in a private university, but has been working part-time as a lifeguard at Sentosa to support his family.
    He is the only son and he lives with his parents in a HDB flat in Sengkang.
    Speaking to queries from the media, Mr Tang’s father, a 55 year old odd job laborer said his son complained to his mother that he was very tired after he returned home at around 7pm and wanted to sleep first before having dinner.
    However, he did not step out of the room till 11pm and when Mrs Tang stepped into his room, she was shocked to see her son lying motionless on the bed with some vomitus by his side.
    While some Singaporeans have to work part-time to pay for their school fees, some foreigners like NUS PRC scholar Sun Xu are entitled to free university education in Singapore on top of a generous monthly living allowance.

    It is sad to know that there are really poor SG people dying from fatigue while foreigners get a easy life in SG with free education and allowance...

    紀雲.

    晨云之美目不見
    夜深人靜心念云

    年少時多心不定
    老時心悔不惜云

    一生能見几晨雲
    無望心死此决歌


    思云

    辰云之美心头思
    此生无缘再见云

    但愿日落有云伴
    末路走来无遗憾

    虽然辰云随风散
    但云永在心头思

    忘云
    从起点到终点
    云得到的是伤痕
    隆得到的是遗憾
    伤痕随时间愈合
    遗憾将伴隆一生

    Hi I am new to this thread. I feel really bad about seeing this. I hope that the families can recover quickly. He died with dignity. This is also a lesson for us, If you are tired you can always rest a bit. It is not as bad as you think. Just a quick nap would do. Remember your key to your future always starts with your health.

    i feel sorry for this young lad also, hope that he RIP...

    when i was young at his age, i will go partying or play mahjong until morning, then report for work. old people tell me that you won't feel the impact until when you are old. i am nearing 40 and already feeling the ill effects!

    i heard from some taxi uncle there were cases of young mercedes taxi drivers who drove until they passed away in their sleep.

    pap only know their bottom-line and run the country like any MNC. i remember during the election poll last year, all their supporters, apparently in white, driving all white colour mercedes, following behind their MP and speaks volume enough about who the leeders really care!
