Family whose daughter was having high fever stuck in traffic -- but police officer escorts them all the way to hospital

Frantic parents who were trying to send their sick daughter to the hospital on July 4 found help in the form of awesome police officer Koh Wei Jie.

The incident took place on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) before the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) at around 6.45pm.

As there was heavy traffic on the road, Koh quickened the family's journey to Mount Elizabeth Hospital by getting the family to follow behind his patrol car until they reached their destination.

Joan Lim, the mother of the child, took to Facebook to commend the police officer and express her gratitude.

She said in her post:

"I would like to compliment officer Koh Wei Jie who's driving QX842J on July 7, 6.45pm along PIE before BKE exit.

"He noticed my hubby was driving on the road shoulder with hazard lights on during peak hours and stopped us.

"We explained that our daughter, Stephanie, was having high fever at 39.2deg; immediately he asked us to follow behind his patrol car. He escorted us all the way to Mount Elizabeth.

"Without his help, we wouldn't have been able to send my daughter to the hospital within such a short timing.

"Once again, thank you!"

Great job to the Singapore Police Force for once again going out of their way to help those in need!
