Third MRT Suicide In Two Months: Man attempted suicide at Keat Hong LRT on 10 May (Alfresco Forums)

A man attempted suicide at Keat Hong LRT Station on Monday evening, causing the train service to be disrupted.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said the incident happened at 6.57pm.

He suffered abrasion on his arm and legs and was sent to the National University Hospital.

44 year old Mohammad Effandy Warma, who was at the scene, said: “There’s a lot of activities… the civil defense officers were there, there were two fire engines and I also saw that there were ambulances plus the police.

“We saw… the stretcher and then they pushed it into the ambulance, and then the ambulance goes off. We also saw that the LRT, the carriages were apparently not moving.”

Normal LRT service resumed after more than an hour.

SMRT said about 860 commuters were affected by the disruption. It deployed bus bridging services to serve these passengers.

Those who were unable to complete their journey can get a refund at SMRT’s stations over the next three days.

Since the victim is still alive, he can be charged in court for one count of suicide attempt and another count for disrupting train service and causing inconvenience to commuters.

The reason for the attempt of suicide is still unknown, probably because the victim owed debts or suffered huge losses in casinos like previous reports of similar suicide cases.

The identity of the victim has not been revealed.

  1. No Pity for pple who choose to die this way says:

    The man who tried to commit suicide by jumping on the train tracks deserves no pity.

    If you really wanna die, there are so many ways to do it. Why do so in a fashion where you incovenience thousands of other innocent pple?

    You dont want to live its your problem, but there are so much more of us who are struggling to stay alive. Such asinine jerks who choose to commit suicide this way are the worst selfish a5s h01es in the planet. Even in death, they want to drag other pple down the drain with them.

    Pui !!
