A video emerged online showing an elderly man seated on the ground at a pedestrian crossing by the road side.
He was apparently waiting to get into a taxi as he was unable to walk, and he had a makeshift “wheelchair” beside him – a board with wheels that he used to move around.
It is unclear when the incident happened but the video was posted online on 13 January, and it happened at Chong Pang, Yishun.
The next cut of the video shows the elderly man struggling to get onto a taxi and he was crawling on the ground with his hands and trying to drag himself into the vehicle.
The heartwrenching scene was witnessed by a few passers-by, who then stepped forward to help the man into the taxi.
The video was captioned:
“Big thank you to the passers-by who helped him, and the taxi driver who took him. Please share this and hopefully someone who recognises the uncle can get him the much-needed help he needs.”
