NS 3.0 – Not so fast, please

LAST Saturday, 10 young men, part of a group that had been asked to go out on an 8km speed march, collapsed in the hot weather. One of them died. Two others ended up in the intensive care unit while the other seven needed treatment at a hospital.

These young men were all fit army trainees who had been picked to join the infantry course at Johor’s Army Combat Training Centre (Pulada) in Kota Tinggi; and they could not take the heat.
