A couple's baby boy was brought into the world in an especially memorable way when three paramedic officers from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) helped to deliver their second child in their own home.
Mr Kean Ho wrote in a Facebook post on Friday (Apr 7) that officer-in-charge Kitshan and medics Shafiq Rhymia and Samo Iqbal came in ambulance AB 113 and ended up delivering the baby in the couple's residence at about 8.25am that morning.
Mr Ho said he wanted to express his respect to the team via Facebook as SCDF does not allow hampers or gifts in appreciation.
"My wife and baby are well taken care of and in good hands. SCDF indeed trains their staff well. Their performance was remarkable and my family felt that we were in good hands under the care of officer Kitshan."
Failure to spot the small but significant difference in these shapes could be a sign of Alzheimer's disease.
