Stomper Lau Lup encountered a woman who was lying on the floor at Potong Pasir MRT Station on Thursday (March 1) at around 11am.

Lau Lup told Stomp in a phone interview that the woman looked pallid, and two passersby, as well as another two SMRT employees, were attending to her. 

The woman said that she wanted to vomit, and Lau Lup quickly took out a plastic bag from his backpack and handed it over.

Said Lau Lup:

“I work as a nurse, so I did a quick assessment of the woman’s general condition.

“No obvious injuries were noted. Although she was conscious, she looked pale and weak.”

The woman started to vomit in the plastic bag.

According to Lau Lup, the other two commuters attempted to get in contact with the woman’s family members but did not seem to get a response.

Lau Lup continued:

“After that, I had to leave, but I heard that one of the MRT personnel went to the station to get a plastic bag.

“Perhaps my bag was full or had a hole in it and they needed another one. I saw a big plastic bag placed at near the counter.

“Hope the woman is okay.”

In response to a Stomp query, a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) spokesman said:

"SCDF were alerted to a call for ambulance assistance at Potong Pasir station at 11.25am.

"A woman was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital for treatment.

"The hospital was alerted to be on standby to receive her."
