As Sgt Adam called for an ambulance, Senior Staff Sgt Azhar checked the boy's vitals. There were no signs of breathing or a pulse, so he applied cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Staff Sergeant Joshua Kwek, 27, sprinted to the Sengkang Polyclinic next door. The polyclinic had closed for the day, but he found a doctor who had not yet left for home and told him about the boy. They took the boy into the doctor's consultation room.

A Singapore Civil Defence Force spokesman said they sent an ambulance and that the boy was then taken to KK Women's and Children's Hospital.
