A Singapore actor now serving his military conscription was seriously injured in an exercise in New Zealand and is now being monitored in the high dependency unit.

Actor Aloysius Pang sustained injuries while he was serving his reservist period on an overseas exercise in New Zealand, according to a Facebook post by artiste management agency NoonTalk Media on Sunday.

NoonTalk Media said Pang’s mum is currently traveling to New Zealand and the agency is in close communication with Singapore’s defense ministry.

According to a release by the ministry on Sunday, the actor sustained a serious injury on Saturday afternoon while he was carrying out repair works on an artillery vehicle called the Singapore Self-Propelled Howitzer.

Pang was taking part in Exercise Thunder Warrior at the Waiouru Training Area in New Zealand.

He was transferred to his battalion casualty station where a medical officer assessed and stabilized him before he was evacuated via helicopter to the Waikato hospital in Hamilton, New Zealand.

At the hospital, he went through surgery and is now being monitored in the high dependency unit.

Pang had previously posted on his Instagram that he was going to be away to serve his time in army and asked his fans to “wait for me to come back” in Mandarin.

Well-wishers sent notes of encouragement to his social media pages, wishing him well and praying for his safety.
