Singapore girl laughs at NSF who died during training: Singaporeans too weak? LOL
Posted by temasektimes on April 18, 2012
A Singapore girl Zheng Huiting (pic left) sparked a massive outcry in cyberspace with an insensitive comment posted on the Facebook of a friend who shared a link on the unfortunate death of a full-time National Serviceman (NSF) yesterday.
21 years old Private (PTE) Lee Rui Feng Dominique Sarron from the 3rd Battalion of the Singapore Infantry Regiment (SIR) collapsed and died during training in Lim Chu Kang yesterday.
A statement from the Defence Ministry said he lost consciousness soon after at 12.33pm.
Mindef said an SAF medic attended to him immediately.
Private Lee was sent to Sungei Gedong Medical Centre at 12.46pm and then to the National University Hospital (NUH) at 1.03pm.
An SAF doctor continued to resuscitate him in the ambulance en route to the hospital.
He was pronounced dead at 2.05pm at NUH.
This is the third reported death involving SAF personnel this year. The earlier two involved an NS man in January, and a full-time NS man in March.
In response to a link to a Straits Times article posted on the Facebook of a friend, Huiting wrote:

(LOL: Laugh Out Loud)
Her comments infuriated many NSFs, one of whom started a thread on Hardwarezone forum calling her to be ‘burn in hell’. (read more here)
According to information posted on her Facebook, Zheng Huiting graduated from Ngee Ann Polytechnic in 2007 after which she pursued her studies at the Queensland University of Technology. She last worked at Voyage de la Vie at Resorts World Sentosa for about a year.
It is not known if she is currently living in Singapore or Brisbane, Australia. Her boyfriend Kelvin Ong is currently serving his NS as a combat engineer.
All Singapore men have to served two years of National Service followed by more than 10 years of reservist to protect the nation. Women, on the other hand, are exempted from NS and enter university and the workforce earlier than men.
Below is the photo of Lee Rui Feng. He would have a bright future ahead of him if he was not enlisted into NS to serve the likes of Zheng Huiting:
Rest in Peace, our dear brother:
