Ms Anju, Ms Lourdes and Ms Bermoy had knocked off from work and were at NE17 Punggol Station, when they saw an elderly man who was bleeding and lying on the floor.
Ms Anju rushed over without hesitation to check his breathing and pulse. She realised that his breathing was weak and she was unable to feel a pulse. Ms Anju immediately started performing CPR on the elderly man, whilst Ms Bermoy called for an ambulance. Ms Lourdes attended to the elderly man’s wounds, applying pressure to stop the bleeding with the emergency kit provided by station staff.
The station staff then took over CPR. while Ms Anju refused to rest and started checking the man’s pulse instead. Fortunately, the man’s pulse was back, although he was still unconscious.
The trio only left after ensuring that the elderly man was in good hands of the SCDF.
