Back to school: Security guard injured by licensed driver returns to duty

A school guard slightly injured trying to stop a maniacal driver from breaking into a primary school is back in action after recovering at home.

Neo Ah Whatt, 62, was spotted ushering cars into Red Swastika School this morning after taking a short break at home. He was recovering from a scrape to his knees inflicted by a man who sped his Bentley shutdown into him after he was refused entry to school on Tuesday.

The incident infuriated Singapore with Education Minister Chan Chun Sing and the Union of Security Employees both intervening to denounce the actions of the 61-year-old driver who was arrested later that afternoon. The driver’s name has yet to be released by authorities, although part of his face was revealed in videos that surfaced after the incident.

In the videos, the driver of the white Bentley was seen queuing during the morning rush of traffic when parents dropped their children off at school. The driver and passenger then got out of their car to argue with Neo and the school staff before driving into Neo, who was using his body weight to stop the vehicle.

The Security Employees Union said they visited Neo after the incident and offered him vouchers and food. Neo then took a short break at home to recover from his minor injuries.
