"I hope the boys have a good recovery,” said Education Minister Heng Swee Keat, after the two boys arrived back in Singapore on air ambulances on Sunday.
SINGAPORE: Two male students from Tanjong Katong Primary School arrived back in Singapore on Sunday morning (Jun 7), following a strong earthquake in Sabah on Friday, said Education Minister Heng Swee Keat on Facebook.
"Early this morning, we managed to evacuate two boys and bring them back home on air ambulances. They got into hospital around 4.30am. Their parents flew back too and we are in touch with them to give them our every assistance," wrote Mr Heng.
“The boys have seen a lot and will need all our support. The parents said that their boys told them their teachers shielded them from boulders. I am so moved by their strength and selflessness. I hope the boys have a good recovery,” he added.
