Suffered a fall resulting in a head injury
On Sunday (3 May), WP released a statement sharing that Mr Low had been warded in the ICU after a fall at home.
The 63-year-old statesman had sustained a head injury on Thursday (30 Apr).
Mr Low’s family also sought privacy for his admission so he could rest and recuperate during the crucial period of recovery.
Aljunied GRC MPs to cover Mr Low’s duties
Just 5 days later, it was announced that Mr Low had pulled through his ICU stay to be transferred to a regular ward.
As he’ll be expected to be on MC after the incident, all 4 other Aljunied GRC MPs will help cover his duties.
Mr Low had recently stepped down as WP’s chief, passing the torch to Mr Pritam Singh to lead the opposition party in the upcoming general election.
Get well soon Mr Low!
Though the accident was unfortunate, we hope that Mr Low takes the chance to get ample rest while his fellow party members step in to help out.
He’s expected to remain in the hospital’s general ward for “a few more weeks”, reports TODAYOnline.
His family also expresses their thanks for the well-wishes they’ve received in support of Mr Low’s speedy recovery.
Get well soon Mr Low, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
