Toddler's leg broken, grandmother faints after cyclist crashes into them outside Pasir Ris condo

A 13-month-old toddler was left with a broken leg after a cycling rode into her grandmother who was carrying her outside a condominium in Pasir Ris Drive 3 on May 14.

The grandmother, 65-year-old Madam Lin Zhenghua, told Chinese daily Lianhe Zaobao she was still shaken by the incident which happened at around 1pm.

"Luckily I was holding onto my grandchild's hand. If not, it would be unthinkable if her head hit the ground. Afterwards, I fainted."

According to the report, the toddler's family initially did not realise she was hurt in the crash, but soon noticed that she would not stop crying.

They subsequently took her to hospital for a check-up the same day and found out that her right leg was broken.

The grandparents told Lianhe Zaobao that they are grateful that the baby did not suffer more severe injuries.

68-year-old Mr Xia Yuzhang, Madam Lin's husband, explained that they had just come out of the condo and were heading to the bus stop when the cyclist crashed into the elderly woman.

"I saw my wife being hit by a cyclist. Then the other two bicycles behind also knocked into the first one."

It was reported that passers-by helped her to the bus stop nearby, and she was warded for two days at Changi General Hospital.

The report also stated that the parents of the teen who rode into Madam Lin visited her in hospital.
