17th January 2010 is a very sad and tragic Sunday. Chung Ling High School’s dragon boat team went out to the sea for training and was hit by strong current and capsized. Then people fell into the water, 2 dead, 4 still missing at this moment (12.53am).
Chung Ling High School was my high school and the saddest thing is that one of the dead, the passed away was Jason Ch’ng, my Leo Club’s President! My successor, the president of the club after my year. Oh, that’s so sucks man.
4 still missing and I know 2 of them, Brendon and Yi Zhang. Please do pray for them hard, it’s more than 12 hours since the thing happened now, very very scary.
24 SEPTEMBER 1993 – 17 JANUARY 2010
PRESIDENT OF LEO CLUB OF CHUNG LING HIGH SCHOOL (2009-2010).
REST IN PEACE. BYE BYE.
Really sucks man. Water are so scary, please don’t play in the water and let us pray together. Everything is so unexpected. Oh damn. I want to say f*ck.
By the way, check this out, rescue team damn.
Also on the tragedy, Eric Tan Leong Yit, 17, a friend of a survivor, said his friend was the first to alert the police on the incident as soon as he came ashore.
“However, it took the police 45 minutes to arrive. It seems like the police initially did not believe it was a genuine emergency call,” he said at the scene.
In the incident, a teacher and a student drowned and four other students went missing after a dragon boat carrying 18 people capsized in waters about 100 metres offshore Lebuh Macallum here at 10.20am. [nst]
