First Televised Collapse of a Prime Minister

Not sure if this is another first in the world but it is definitely a first for Singapore. Surely not one that many of us had heard of. The good thing is, this collapse is a minor one and is more likely due to overwork, fatigue or simply aging body machinery. A mental black-out that will happen to many of our elderly as part of the cradle-to-grave process. This happened on the 21st Oct 2016. Be forewarned, this video is Graphic!

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who almost collapsed on to the floor while delivering his National Day Rally speech on Sunday night, was feeling unsteady because of prolonged standing, heat and dehydration. His heart is fine and he did not have a stroke, said the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). The doctors are less committal and are keeping quiet and their fingers crossed.

The rally resumed at about 10.40pm.

Mr Lee, 64, returned to the stage to a standing ovation and said that while doctors had said he was okay, he would have a full check-up after.

And one of the first to send his well-wishes to PM Lee, is an unconvictable criminal.....
