Ng Eng Hen on death of NSF Dave Lee(Updated: )
Minister for Defence Ng Eng Hen said the Singapore Armed Forces will enhance its prevention and management of heat injuries, after a review following the death of NSF Dave Lee in April. Giving a ministerial statement in Parliament on Monday (Aug 6), Dr Ng also noted that unauthorised punishment may have been a factor in Corporal Lee’s death and that MINDEF will prosecute those responsible for any lapses in military court, if no criminal charges are filed. Nineteen-year-old CFC Lee died on Apr 30, two weeks after suffering heatstroke following a fast march.
