This morning, the “Son-in-Law of Ang Mo Kio”, Dr Koh Poh Koon showed an eager eye and quick reflexes to save a man who collapsed at the AMK Central Market and Food Centre.
The colorectal surgeon performed CPR on the man, before SCDF paramedics arrived and sent him to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
That was around 8am, when Dr Koh was on a PAP walkabout in the estate.
About a week back, another PAP doctor, Dr Janil Puthucheary, was spotted tending to an opposition supporter who fainted at the nomination centre.
In the last presidential election in 2011, former PAP member and current presidentTony Tan was spotted offering assistance to a boy who fell down at a playground in Woodlands.
UPDATE: The man who Dr Koh performed CPR on died in hospital yesterday, so if you are under the impression it was a wayang, it wasn’t!
