We are deeply saddened to confirm the death of a competitor during the swim portion of the Singapore International Triathlon 2017. Immediate medical assistance and resuscitation was commenced at the event site. We also had a Medical Doctor with Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and other medical equipment for resuscitation on site. He was transported to Singapore General Hospital where he was treated. Sadly, he could not be revived despite resuscitation efforts.
At this moment, we have established contact with his family and we will do our best to render them any assistance they may require at this point in time. We are saddened and all our prayers are with his family at this time. We will only be able to share more details once investigation has been completed.
