Girlfriend of Driver Involved in Tanjong Pagar Car Crash Has Been Discharged From the ICU

Ms Raybe Oh Siew Huey, the woman who tried to save her boyfriend from the Tanjong Pagar crash, has been discharged from the intensive care unit, the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) said.

The 26-year-old former Singapore Airlines flight attendant is now in stable condition in a high-dependency ward.

The accident that took place on Feb 13 involved Jonathan Long and Eugene Yap, both 29, Elvin Tan Yong Hao, 28, Teo Qi Xiang, 26, and Gary Wong Hong Chieh, 29.

All five men were on board a white BMW M4 coupe, driven by Mr Long, Ms Oh’s boyfriend.

Mr Long is believed to have sped just before the accident occurred, as footage of the accident shows the BMW travelling at a rapid pace and losing control along Tanjong Pagar road.

It then slammed into the front of a shophouse and burst into flames shortly after.

Ms Oh then arrived at the scene and raced towards the burning wreckage in order to save her boyfriend.

She emerged from the blaze 10 seconds later engulfed in flames.

All five men on board the BMW died, and Ms Oh ended up suffering severe burns on 80% of her body.

She was conscious when taken to SGH.
