Singaporean actor Aloysius Pang has died following an accident during a military training exercise in New Zealand.
The 28-year-old actor sustained serious injuries to his chest and abdomen on Saturday while carrying out repairs inside a Singapore self-propelled Howitzer at the Waiouru training area, south of Taupō.
Pang was taken to Waikato Hospital, where Dr Teo Li Tserng, Chief of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery at Singapore’s Tan Tock Seng Hospital, was flown in to assist the local team.
“Despite surgical attempts to repair damaged organs and putting him on artificial life support, CFC (NS) Pang succumbed to the injuries and passed away,” the Singapore Ministry of Defence said in an official statement.
The Singapore Armed Forces was making arrangements to have his body brought back home.
Pang was known for his work in the films Young & Fabulous, Timeless Love, and an assortment of TV series.
