Singapore: Navy serviceman Jason Chee who lost both his legs and his left hand, in an accident on board the Landing Ship Tank RSS Endeavour, is reported to be in need of more surgery but the blood bank is running low on his blood type.

A source told Channel NewsAsia that the Navy has mobilised its men on the low blood bank concern.

The serviceman whose blood type is O positive, is warded at Changi Hospital.

The Weapon Systems Supervisor who got caught between a motorised winch and a rope on Landing Ship Tank RSS Endeavour on Monday, is now left with his right hand and two fingers.

The Singapore Armed Forces has said that it’s investigating the cause of the incident.

According to a source, it’s understood that the investigations may take more than a month to complete.

Those who wish to donate blood may go to Bloodbank@HSA, Bloodbank@Woodlands or Bloodbank@DhobyGhaut.
