Mr Joseph Loy, Ms Loy’s father, said: “He did an assessment and explained to us the urgency of sending Megan back as resources in Taipei were stretched due to the mass tragedy.” Ms Loy would also benefit as SGH’s Burns Centre is the only specialised facility managing major burn injuries in South-east Asia.
Dr Chew managed to get Ms Loy a space on the International SOS flight back. Shortly after 6am on Tuesday morning, she was seen by the SGH team. “I was touched by the selflessness of the doctors, who took their own initiative to get everything done fast,” said Mr Loy, 47, a businessman.
“When I asked Dr Chew why he was doing all this, he just said: ‘She is one of our own’.”

What did Singaporeans say?
-That sentence says it all, ‘She is one of our own.’ Thank you dear doctors for living the Singapore spirit. Bless you and your team for extending help and bringing hope to a family in need. To Megan, our prayers are with you. Get well soon!
