A group of motorists and passers-by worked together to free an elderly man trapped inside an overturned taxi outside SAFRA Tampines at 6.20pm yesterday (June 7).

The man was trapped inside after the taxi had overturned during an accident.

Despite heavy traffic flow at that time, the motorists and passers-by rushed to the overturned cab and pulled the man out.

They then set the elderly man down at a nearby grass patch and checked if he was ok.

Stomper Henry spotted the incident when he was passing by that area.

In response to Stomp's queries, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was alerted to the incident at 6.20pm and dispatched one ambulance.

One male Chinese in his 70s was conveyed to Changi General Hospital.
