A man was taken to hospital after fainting at an OCBC branch on Wednesday afternoon (June 3).

An auxiliary police officer from security firm Certis had performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the man before paramedics arrived.

A video of the incident, which occurred at OCBC Centre along Chulia Street at around 4pm, was posted on Facebook.

In response to queries by Stomp, a spokesman for OCBC said that the customer had fainted and was immediately given CPR by a Certis auxiliary police officer, who was trained to do so.

"The paramedics and ambulance arrived shortly and attended to the customer. The customer was thereafter conveyed to the hospital," added the spokesman.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force told Stomp that it received a call for medical assistance at 65 Chulia Street at 3.59pm, and conveyed one person to Singapore General Hospital.
