For the past 20 years, Ng Seng Guan has been running a tiny provision shop at Block 316 in Jurong East St 32. He mans his stall from 7am to 7pm on most days till recently, when he suffered a heart attack and was hospitalised.
The 70-year-old had been lifting cartons of soft drinks to make way for upgrading works at the block when he suddenly felt unwell. “He went to the hospital by himself,” his daughter Charlotte, 40, tells 8days.sg. “We only knew he had a heart attack later.”
