According to The Straits Times, the person who called the SCDF was already administering emergency resuscitation by the time rescuers arrived at the scene.

“Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was administered en route to the hospital,” the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) added.

Police are currently investigating the case, which has being classified as an unnatural death.

Just earlier this year in February, another teenager had died after collapsing during a 2.4km run. 15-year-old Loyang Secondary School student Bryan Chee — who suffered from a congenital heart defect — was taken unconscious to Changi General Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
