We often take for granted, the unsung heroes in the Singapore Civil Defense Force (SCDF). They often work in the shadows and their actions of valiance often go unnoticed by the general public. But on this cold rainy Sunday afternoon,they warmed the hearts of those watching the tense scene unfold as they risked their lives to save a woman contemplating suicide. The whole incident was recorded by video from the opposite block.
At various points the woman can be seen alternating sitting or standing on the railing. The SCDF officers then orchestrated the daring rescue maneuver, managing to bring her back to safety.
It is in situations such as this that we are reminded of the sacrifices of these brave young men.
