A toddler was left injured and had to undergo surgery after an accident on Sep 25.

Initial and unverified reports circulating on Facebook as well as an article posted by All Singapore Stuff alleged that the girl had been hit by an electric scooter rider at Marina Bay Sands (MBS).

However, Stomp understands that it did not happen at MBS.

Facebook user Bryan Loke had shared about the incident in the closed group 'Rear Wheel Singapore Scooter', which Stomper Joyce alerted Stomp to.

Bryan said in his post, "A girl was hit by [a] suspected SW3 with LED lighting during Sunday late night. [She is] hospitalised and underwent surgery for [a] deep cut on [the] nose region. Culprit unknown."

The incident apparently occurred in the public space near the promenade. The area is said to be known for being a blind spot.

However, Stomp understands that the toddler, who was riding a manual scooter, is believed to have most likely fallen down by herself.

There were no witnesses to what happened as the girl's mother had briefly left her child to play on her own when the accident occurred.

In addition, it could not be established that there was an electric scooter rider or another party involved in the mishap.

An ambulance was called and the girl was conveyed to hospital.
