THE Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Monday, December 30, confirmed that the two women killed and four others injured in a car crash in Singapore are Filipinos.
Two of the four injured are now in stable condition while the two others are still undergoing “intensive treatment”, the DFA said in a statement.
“All victims are being assisted by the Embassy,” the agency added.
The DFA said it is in touch with Singapore authorities for the repatriation of the remains of the two Filipino fatalities.
The six Filipino women were reportedly having a picnic along a side road next to the Lucky Plaza mall in Singapore when a car crashed through a metal railing and into them on Sunday afternoon, December 29, 2019. The driver had been arrested.
Most Filipinos working in Singapore hang out in the area on their rest day.
The DFA, in its statement, expressed its condolences to the families of the two women who died on the spot. (SunStar Philippines)
