My dad was knocked down by an Adult Wild Boar while cycling on 29th November 2022 around 8PM. He is in his 70s. A Seasoned PCN cyclist, cycling 200km – 300km every week for the past 2 years. Weather was good so he took the opportunity to go for a Solo ride.

As he was coasting down the bridge (shown in picture), he noticed an Adult Wild Boar in the opposite direction of PCN suddenly charging towards him from 45degrees and knocking him off the bike. The huge impact caused him to land face down on the tarmac with a cracked helmet.

I can’t stress the importance of wearing a Helmet even when riding on PCN which probably saved his life. Luckily he heeded my advice.

Super grateful for a couple who witnessed the incident and came to help.

They walked him and bike to the nearest HDB block at 669B Edgefield plains before contacting me to pick up and sending to SKH A&E.

His Entire face was covered in abrasions and cuts to eyebrow which require stitches.

Initial Observation was his hands shoulders and collarbone are all intact. But after detailed X-ray and CT scans it was discovered that there were multiple fracture to his cheekbone. Facial Specialist informed him there would be a high chance of surgery as the cheek bones was critical in supporting his eyes and maintaining his face structure. Will be having a follow up visit in 2wks time. 🙏

Hope everything will be fine.

As of now stay safe everyone!
