The victims were identified to be 36-year-old Liu Jinchang and 30-year-old Chen Liru (names transliterated from Chinese). Liru was reportedly six months pregnant at the time of the accident.

Speaking to the Chinese news site, Liru’s elder sister Chin Liqin (name transliterated from Chinese) said the couple were on the way to Singapore for work when tragedy struck.

Liqin also told 8world News that the couple, prior to their demise, had travelled daily between Singapore and Johor for the past 11 years without any issues.

This was despite her advice to simply stay in Singapore or opt for carpooling arrangements. The couple reportedly wanted to save costs.


Pregnant lady was diligent & responsible

Speaking to Shin Min Daily News, Liru’s employer shared that the deceased had planned on applying to be a Singapore Permanent Resident this year.

Liru reportedly worked at a hardware shop in Singapore for the past two years and was described as a responsible and diligent worker.

Therefore, her boss sensed something amiss when he did not hear from her on the morning of the accident.

He only learned about the tragedy from Liru’s sister later that morning.
