SINGAPORE: A candlelight vigil was held on Sunday night near the accident site in Tampines, where two boys died on 28 January.

Thirteen—year—old Nigel Yap and his seven—year—old brother Donavan died, after they were hit by a cement mixer.

More than 100 people turned up to remember the brothers, including their aunt.

MP for Tampines GRC Baey Yam Keng was also present at the event which was organised by the Tampines Grassroots Organisations.

He said: "I saw some items left by the public at the junction like some sweets, snacks. I just felt, I mean, I’m also a father. So imagine if my kids can no longer enjoy these. So very naturally the emotions come."
