A Close Call While Jaywalking
We are all familiar with jaywalking across streets in Singapore. It almost feels like a skill: gauging the speed of oncoming cars and timing our crossings just right.
However, what seemed like a typical day for a woman on Moulmein Road quickly turned into something you would expect from a film.
Whilst we cannot determine the exact speed of the taxi, it was clearly too fast for such a narrow road.
Narrow Escape for the Woman
Recall the woman on the grass patch? She narrowly missed the crash by mere inches.
Although she managed to avoid a direct hit, the force of the crash knocked her to the ground.
A report from ‘Today’ stated that three individuals were hospitalised following the incident. However, this lady was not among them. We sincerely hope for a swift recovery for all affected by this accident.
Several netizens remarked that the woman was “saved by the tree”, suggesting her good karma and past good deeds played a role.
Comments ranged from “thanks to the tree the aunty’s life was spared” to simply “Lucky aunty”.
