Last Saturday (13 Feb), Malaysia-born woman, Raybe Oh Siew Huey who lives in Singapore, tried to save her fiancé and friends trapped in a burning car after an accident. Since then, the 26-year-old suffered severe burns on about 80% of her body and is now fighting for her life in a hospital’s ICU.
According to Straits Times, video footage has recently emerged showing the moment she ran towards the burning car in Tanjong Pagar Road. In the clip, the white BMW M4 coupe is seen skidding for two seconds at around 5.40am on the second day of the Chinese New Year.
The car’s signal lights can be seen blinking for about 15 seconds before the vehicle explodes in a ball of fire. It then spins out of control before slamming into a shophouse further away. About 20 seconds later, Raybe appears in the video and can be seen running towards the burning car and right into the flames.
She emerges 10 seconds later, covered in flames, and is seen running towards some shophouses opposite the road.
The CCTV camera footage also shows a white car pulling up by the side of the road, several metres from the crash. The driver gets out and at first, runs towards the burning car before turning left towards a row of shophouses.
But upon seeing Raybe on fire, he tried to help her by putting it out. At one point, another woman is also seen trying to help her. Fire trucks then arrive about seven minutes after the accident.
The car was driven by her fiancé, Jonathan Long, 29, a financial adviser at Aviva Financial Advisers. All five occupants in the car died.
The Straits Times uploaded six video clips with timestamps between 5.24am and 5.50am. The BMW is seen making three rounds on the same stretch of road before losing control and crashing during the fourth round. The car was driven more slowly in the earlier rounds.
