SINGAPORE: A 19-year-old police trainee died on Thursday morning, two days after he fell during a running exercise.

Trainee Special Constable Roslan Saharo was feeling unwell during a trial Individual Physical Proficiency Test (IPPT) at the Home Team Academy on Tuesday morning.

He was among a group of 120 trainees who reported for the exercise.

Shortly after he started his 2.4-kilometre self-paced run at 7.30am, a physical instructor saw Roslan stumbling and falling.

He was given prompt medical attention and sent to the National University Hospital. But he died on Thursday.

The Jurong Police Division is investigating.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Loy Chye Meng said: "I am saddened by the loss of such a young officer. Our hearts go out to the bereaved. The police will render support and assistance in every way to TSC Roslan's family." - ChannelNewsAsia.com

hopefully someone revamp IPPT...
sometimes, even the fittest also can collapsed :(
actually if your body cannot take any more physical abuse, is a warning sign you should start to slow down during a run.
stopping suddenly is more harmful instead.
the fittest collapsed is probably due to their mental strength overwriting their physical strength like me sometimes i would run till i drop.

when you push yourself to the limits, did you finish below 9.45 most of the time?
if yes, you didn't vomit for nothing.
and 1 more thing dont drink so much water before a run, your stomach probably cant hold it in after all that movement.

The key is to understand your own body as best as you can. Understand the warning signs of the body. By the time others see something has gone wrong, chances are it might be too late.

Yeah in the old days I used to vomit after the run, pushing real hard.
It's impt to monitor what goes into the stomach before a run. Also upon finishing, cannot stop suddenly or sit down, that can result is vomiting. Solution is to walk about and take deep breaths.

agree... before IPPT is advise not to take in too much fluid also...
ample water parade is needed the night before instead of heavy drinking minutes before the start of the run...

but still as mentioned before, even the fittest also collapsed :(
