The valiant effort and good teamwork of Dr Peng KaiIing, Senior Staff Nurse Nurhana Binte Mohamed, Staff Nurse Hazel Tan  and medical students Peter Daniel and Kelvin Wui led to them saving the life of a cardiac arrest victim one busy Friday morning at an MRT station.  Knowing that every second counts, they successfully revived the man before the arrival of the paramedics. The man was discharged from hospital shortly after.  For their selfless act, the group received the Public Spiritedness Award from the Singapore Civil Defence Force!

We are proud to have colleagues like them who answer to the call of duty of saving lives, even when they are off duty!
