"It is quite scary. We were standing in a circle talking, then suddenly I just fainted and landed on my face.

"I didn't know what happened. My friends told me I was unconscious for a while. When I woke up, I was staring blankly at them. So that's when my friends got worried and sent me to hospital," said Tan.

"I was put under observation in hospital. They (his doctors) can't find the cause of my fainting. They said it is likely due to irregular heartbeats or it could be due to fits, but when I fell, there were no symptoms of fits [present]."

"The doctors wanted to keep me under observation for 24 hours after the incident, but I needed to hold the showcase ... so they made me sign an indemnity form before letting me go."

Get well soon!!
