When Genevieve Kho Jialing was having dinner, she heard a commotion and saw that the man had collapsed. Immediately, she called 995 and performed CPR on the man with the help of the 995 medical dispatcher on the other line guiding her through the steps.

Soon after, Mohamad Syafiq Bin Mohamad Zahren who had been alerted by the SCDF’s myResponder app came and help performed CPR and asked those nearby to help get an AED. Thanks to their efforts, the elderly man was saved.

Thank you Genevieve Kho Jialing and Mohamad Syafiq Bin Mohamad Zahren for stepping up to save a life!
