SINGAPORE: The body of the Indian teenage worker who was killed in the Tanah Merah Coast Road accident has been sent back to India.
Relatives of the deceased collected his body from the Singapore General Hospital’s mortuary on Wednesday morning.
Nineteen—year—old Kathiravan came to Singapore about three months ago.
He was a construction worker with a local construction company, when he got involved in the accident which hurt 25 others.
The casualties were sent to Changi General Hospital. Five of them are still in intensive care but in a stable condition.
Kathiravan’s co—workers in the construction company have collected some S$14,000 to assist his family.
The company also did its part to send the body to India on a Singapore Airlines flight.
The Migrant Workers’ Centre (MWC) has also assured the workers that they’ll get the care and assistance they’ll need, with the Migrant Workers’ Assistance Fund set up recently to handle such cases.
