What would you do if you’re driving along the road and you see a car parked on a grass patch?

Would you stop your car and approach it to see everything’s fine?

Or would you ignore it and just continue driving to your destination?

46-year-old Mr Erman Eusope decided to do the former, and what he found shocked him.

What Happened

On Monday, Mr Erman was driving near the junction of Tampines Road and Hougang Avenue 7 towards Simon Road when he spotted a grey car parked on the grass patch.

He was driving on the right-most lane and initially thought it was a Traffic Police car. However, as he slowed down to get a better look, he immediately noticed that it wasn’t and that something was wrong.

When he reached the junction, he called the police and made a U-turn so that he could check on the driver of the grey car who was slumped in his seat.

He said, “I knocked and banged on the door and window, but there was no reaction.”

He wanted to help the man, but he knew he couldn’t do it alone, so for the next five to 10 minutes, he tried to flag down passing vehicles, but none stopped.

Thankfully, a former Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officer who was driving a van saw Mr Erman and stopped.

Together, they tried to break the rear passenger window, but to no avail.

A container truck driver later also came to help them, but it wasn’t until a lorry driver transporting gas canisters stopped by and passed them his hammer that they managed to get the unconscious driver out.

The former SCDF officer sprung into action and performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the man until the paramedics arrived.

Unfortunately, the man died after he was rushed to Sengkang General Hospital.

He Had A Family

As the incident unfolded before him, Mr Erman spotted the man’s phone and noted how his wallpaper was a photo of him, his wife and his son and daughter.

This immediately broke Mr Erman’s heart as he was a father of two boys aged four and two. He was later informed that the man had passed away.

“What if it was me, what would have happened? That was what has been playing in my head… It is still raw to me,” he said.

Thinking back on the incident, he continued, “If I was a bit earlier or on the left lane, I would have stopped immediately. I really tried my best.”

Mr Erman attended the 52-year-old man’s wake last night and told the reporters that his family was still in shock.

A 34YO "old-virgin" S'porean was desperately looking for a boyfriend and surprisingly, she really found one online. But the intentions of the man will make you cry. Prepare tissue paper to watch this video based on real events:

We extend our deepest condolences to the man’s family and we hope that he rests in peace.

Moral of the story? Render help whenever you can, because you might just save a life.
