    Shocking thing is that the plane crash in a store house I use to work in day in day out when I was doing my NS. The store have hardly anyone there except for poeple like me who work there. Just image my shock when I saw the place on TV. They must be very unfortunate.

    Some updated news....

    Two servicemen injured in Taiwan jet crash back in Singapore
    Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 12 May 2007 2011 hrs

    SINGAPORE : The two SAF servicemen warded overnight at the Intensive Care Unit of the Taipei Tri-service Hospital were flown back to Singapore on Saturday evening.

    They are now warded in Singapore General Hospital, where they will continue to receive treatment for their burns and injuries.

    MINDEF says the two Full-time National Servicemen, 23-year-old 3rd Sergeant Ramakrishnan Karthigayan and 19-year-old Lance Corporal Calvin Chow Han Min were brought back to Singapore by a RSAF KC-135 aircraft specially equipped for medical evacuation.
    The aircraft arrived at Paya Lebar Air Base at 5.28 pm.

    Members of the SAF medical team, including a burns specialist and a medical aviation expert, augmented by specialist staff and life support systems from Alexandra Hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital and the National University Hospital, were on board the aircraft to monitor the condition of the two soldiers throughout the flight.

    Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean visited both servicemen at the hospital on Saturday evening.

    Minister Teo also met with the relatives of the servicemen to assure them of MINDEF's and the SAF's support during this difficult time.

    Sergeant Ramakrishnan Karthigayan's father said his son, a full-time National Serviceman with the infantry unit (6th SIR), left for training in Taiwan last Friday.

    He was due back home next week.

    Mr J Ramakrishnan's friends came to his support following news about his son's condition.

    He also had regular updates from Mindef's Family Support Officer Major Joe Ronesh de Silva.

    Mr J Ramakrishnan said: "I feel very grateful to the armed forces. Major Ron played a very important part, contacting me initially, updating me, even at 2am. He did everything possible, told me he'll update me. He did everything possible, even arrangements to fly us up. He also understood our request for him to be flown back to Singapore." - CNA/ch

    SINGAPORE : Over a hundred people attended the funeral of 3rd Sergeant Isz Sazli Sapari on Saturday afternoon.

    The 19-year-old SAF personnel was one of two servicemen killed in the fighter jet crash incident in Taiwan.

    Family members shared their moment of grief in prayer as the cortege arrived at a mosque at the Pusara Abadi Cemetery around 4.30pm.

    His body had been flown back to Singapore via a RSAF C-130 aircraft earlier.

    3rd Sergeant Isz Sazli was accorded a full military funeral at the Muslim cemetery in Lim Chu Kang.

    Three rounds of ammunition were discharged as a sign of respect.

    Those who turned up for the procession included friends and many army personnel.

    Just last month, a Police Coast Guard had been buried there after he was killed in the line of duty.

    And 3rd Sergeant Isz Sazli now rests some 50 metres from Station Inspector Mohd Khalid Muhamad.

    Family members were too distraught and declined to be interviewed.

    But his ex-schoolmates from Broadrick Secondary School, who had been looking forward to a class reunion, described him as likeable and easygoing.

    The 3rd Sergeant was set to be enrolled in the Arts and Social Sciences Faculty at the NUS.

    He was from Anderson JC.

    Nurul Ain Alias, Former Secondary Schoolmate, said: "He has the biggest heart among all the guys I know. He's very kind, he always has a smile for every body. He tops the level every year and everybody knew him as a smart guy."

    The family of the late Private Fan Yao Jin were in Taipei to conduct religious rites at the crash site.

    MINDEF says arrangements are underway to transport the remains of Private Fan back to Singapore on Sunday.

    He will also be accorded a full military funeral. - CNA/ch
