Stomper Michael's 66-year-old mother fractured her right foot after falling into a drain along Bedok Reservoir Road near Block 631 at around 8am on May 2.

In a telephone interview, the Stomper said that her mother intended to cross the road before she fell.

She stepped off the kerb onto the road, but did not realise that there was a drain under her foot. She did not see the opening as it was covered by fallen leaves.

Thereafter, her foot landed in the drain and she fell forward. Thankfully, there were no vehicles on the road at that point of time.

The Stomper said that his mother sustained a hairline crack in her right foot. She was unable to work because of her injury, and suffered a loss of income.
