In another part of Singapore, a different act of kindness took place yesterday afternoon.
Four good Samaritans rushed to help a man who was having difficulty crossing the road at the traffic lights at the junction of Tanjong Katong Road in front of City Plaza at around 1.30pm.
The man, who was seated in an upright position, was using his hands to drag himself across the road.
A motorist filmed the kind deed and submitted the video to citizen journalism website Stomp.
He said: "I was in the car when I suddenly saw this man, whom I believe to be partially disabled, attempting to cross the road.
"In a flash, I saw two shop assistants rushing to the aid of the elderly man.
"Soon after, two more pedestrians came over and helped him cross the road as well."
The Stomp contributor added that motorists waited patiently for the man to cross the road, even though the traffic lights had turned green.
