During one such breakdown, this train captain, Goh Kim Han, did what many others wouldn’t in a similar situation – piggy-back an ah pek to the safety of the station platform.
The incident took place on 9 Jan this year, when a train on the North-South Line broke down when approaching Marsiling station.
Passengers had dismount and walk on the track to the station.
Seeing that the ah pek was struggling on the rocky track surface, Goh took it upon himself to carry him to the platform.
A pretty mean feat considering Goh himself is 51-year-old!
Goh has been given the Outstanding Award at the National Kindness Award – Transport Gold for his selfless behaviour.
We’d give the man a Tiger.
