Diploma in Cybersecurity and Forensics' Students' Heroism
Diploma in Cybersecurity and Forensics' Students' Heroism

Celebrating our remarkable students, Adli, Marco, Lycia, and Norvin, for their incredible acts of kindness and heroism!

When they had witnessed a four-car chain collision, they made a snap decision to alight, asking the bus driver to open the bus door. Thereafter, they ran to the scene of the accident, outside TP's East Gate, to help out.

Marco had called the ambulance, Norvin helped Marco by giving him the location details and safeguarded the passengers’ belongings while Adli Yazlani and Lycia Goh helped the passengers in the cars, one of them being our TP staff, Ms. Gail Goodenough.

Adli had seen the oil leakage around the car Ms. Gail was in and calmly told her to exit the vehicle. After grabbing her belongings, Adli helped Ms. Gail exit the vehicle, signalled for other moving cars to stop so that they both can cross the road to safety. Thankfully, Ms. Gail walked away with no major injuries.
