Actress Jayley Woo bade an emotional farewell to her boyfriend, actor Aloysius Pang, in a series of heart-rending Instagram posts overnight, shortly after the Ministry of Defence (Mindef) issued a statement on Wednesday night (Jan 23) confirming his death.
Corporal First Class (NS) Pang died at 8.45pm on Wednesday from injuries sustained on Saturday (Jan 19) while carrying out repair works inside a Singapore Self-Propelled Howitzer during a military exercise in New Zealand. His lungs, heart and kidney were damaged when a gun barrel was lowered. He underwent three surgeries and was put on artificial life support, Mindef said.
In an Instagram post close to midnight, 27-year-old Woo wrote in Chinese: “Aug 24 is your birthday, Jan 4 is a special day of ours, and on Jan 24 you left me without a word. All that is left is your cold and hard hands.”
