But when paramedics arrived at the scene, both boys, aged seven and 13, were pronounced dead.
A MediaCorp hotline caller said that the incident happened only 50 metres from the school gates, and that he saw a smashed bicycle lying near the boys.
Meanwhile, gruesome photos believed to be of the dead boys have been spreading online, sparking concern among some netizens.
In one of the photos, a body of a boy beside a badly dented bicycle lies on the road.
In a tweet, blogger Kinmun Lee, otherwise known as mrbrown, said, “Please, don’t spread those photos of the two siblings who died at the Tampines bicycle accident anymore. Their parents might see it.”
Hi. Request that you take the picture down. Their parents would be devastated if they see this.
Greetings. May I humbly request that the image be removed, so as to show respect and sensitiveness to the bereaved family. Thank you very much.
We Respect the Family and have Deepest condolences…. but there are 2 images circulating on the internet…… ???
HI there. Will try to minimise as much as we can…… The parents will be very sad if they see the images.
Parents saw Dead Bodies themselves… so dont be so emotional… Thanks
I respectfully ask you to remove the pictures, this is because the pictures can still be found under google search. I understand that you want to share this moment as a reminder to all so that they can be more careful, but maybe you could post other pictures e.g. of the funeral instead? This is a plead to you, cos only you can do it. The parents are devastated, and the father is obviously someone who peruse the web too, so they could see it and be reminded of how their sons died such a tragic death. I think they have ,memories that they want to keep of their children and it’s most definitely not one that is posted on this blog. I’m sorry if what I plead cause offence to any of your intentions, but I think in the big picture, it’s the best thing to do now. Thank you
Hi, the parents of the boys have seen the bodies on Monday. But they do not deserve to be reminded of how their children died that day. I respectfully request that you remove the picture. Thank you.
people have already asked u to remove the pictures, but u still insist on posting. And Ali…u are the only one who post the bodies of the 2 boys ok! ARE U A HEARTLESS PERSON? U HAVE NO SYMPATHY OVER THE 2 BOYS AT ALL!
