Two men, Mr. Subramanian Shanmuganathan and Mr. Ponnan Muthukumar, working in Singapore were publicly lauded for saving a toddler from the second floor of an apartment.
Mr. Lim said that another two men have initially tried to save the toddler but failed until these two men came and climbed up. Mr Shanmuganathan and Mr Muthukumar later said that the climbing was easy for them as they had climbed trees before.

Mr. Lim wrote in his blog that he feels the the man “deserves a medal or at least some publicity for his heroic act”.
The Singapore Civil Defense Force (SCDF) later identified the two men and awarded them the “Public Spiritedness Award” for their actions.
