So sad that there is another suicide at an MRT station. This time a 40 yr old man.
After the spate of suicides in recent months, the MRT has done EVERYTHING it can to prevent people from jumping in front of trains. Every thing possible has been done!
There are now 3 types of warning signs at MRT stations:
"DO NOT STEP BEYOND THE YELLOW LINE UNTIL THE TRAIN STOPS"
"DANGER DO NOT GO DOWN THE TRACKS"
"VALUE LIFE, ACT RESPONSIBLY"
I'm totally shocked that the suicide victim who was a Singaporean actually disobeyed a total of 3 signs to leap in front of the train. I suggest they add one more sign:
"YOUR PRECIOUS LIFE CAN MAKE AN IMPACT IN SINGAPORE...."
Someone I spoke to said that the Chinese papers reported the man was suffering from depression due to job loss and financial problems. According to the WanBao, his family of 4 (parents + 2 kids) owe school fees and utilities for a few months. This family must be a rare exception because the PAP govt is so rich it sends civil servants overseas to offer scholarship to foreigners. Of course, the PAP govt is so rich, Shin Corp is just peanuts and not really news worthy in Singapore given the very small number of reports on it in our local media....most of which reassure us that it is just a professionally (yes they did not get the cleaning lady to close the deal!) done commercial deal.
Singaporeans are so rich that PAP govt doesn't do much for these people. Besides, there's plenty of non-govt help if ever you need money. ....here's evidence from the New Paper....many Singaporeans are offering help to those in need with instant cash, they are so kind.
