Stomper Michael's mother broke her thigh bone following a fall at Block 237 Yishun Street 21 on Jul 10 at around  7am.

In a telephone interview, the Stomper said that his 70-year-old mother was walking outside a fishmonger when the incident took place.

He told Stomp that the floor was wet at that point, which he believes was the cause for the fall.

The Stomper's mother was then taken to hospital in an ambulance and doctors said that her right thigh bone was broken as a result of what happened.

She underwent surgery on Jul 14 at Tan Tock Seng Hospital and two metal plates were placed inside her leg to aid healing. 

She was later transferred to Yishun Community Hospital on Jul 20.

After two reviews, doctors discovered that Michael's mother's thigh bone was not recovering as well as it should.

She is currently still in hospital awaiting another review on Nov 20.

The Stomper fears that his mother might not be able to walk if things don't improve.

He would like to find out more about how his mother fell and is appealing for any witnesses to the incident to come forward with information.
