My cousin-in-law just passed away

He is my wife's cousin. One of the NS men who came back with serious injuries from Taiwan earlier this month.

Apparently, he is due for an operation today. I was just informed about this. I don't know him well but I do pray and wish that his family is taking it alright.

Following article taken from Channel News Asia:

One more NS man dies following Taiwan jet crash

SINGAPORE: Full-time national serviceman, 19-year-old Lance Corporal Chow Han Min Calvin, who was air-lifted back to Singapore from Taiwan earlier this month, has died at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH).

MINDEF said he died at 6.37 am after his condition took a turn for the worse early Monday morning.

Lance Corporal Chow had suffered severe burn injuries after a Taiwanese F-5F aircraft crashed into a storehouse where he was located on 11 May.

MINDEF added that the other injured serviceman, 3rd Sergeant Ramakrishnan Karthigayan, is in a critical but stable condition at the Intensive Care Unit of SGH.

Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean expressed his deepest condolences to the family of the late LCP Chow.

MINDEF and the SAF will continue to assist the family in their time of loss.

On the day of the incident, two SAF soldiers were killed in Taiwan.

They were both accorded full military funerals.
