Exceptional people: Passers-by lift van to free trapped woman after crash
A 20-year-old woman was trapped under a RedMart van in the early hours yesterday and was rescued by passers-by who came together to lift the vehicle and free her.
The incident happened at the junction of Woodlands Avenue 9 and Riverside Road at about 12.15am.
A taxi driver who wanted to be known only as Mr Chen, 68, told Shin Min that the woman was pinned face down under the front wheels of the van for about 10 minutes and was "worryingly silent".
He said about seven or eight people, including the van driver, worked together to lift the van.
