SINGAPORE — Four days after he was seriously injured during a military exercise, actor Aloysius Pang succumbed to his injuries and died on Wednesday (Jan 23) night. 

Pang had been on reservist as an armament technician with the 268th Battalion Singapore Artillery and was carrying out repair works on a self-propelled howitzer at Waiouru Training Area in New Zealand last Saturday when the incident happened.

On Wednesday, Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen said that the 28-year-old is in “very serious” condition and needed artificial life support for his lungs, kidneys and heart. Pang died at 8.45pm (Singapore time) at Waikato Hospital in New Zealand.

CAREER IN A NUTSHELL

  • Mr Pang started acting at the age of nine and was once nominated at the 2003 edition of the Star Awards in the Young Talent Award category.

  • He quit acting at the age of 14 when the pressure of fame led him to a phase of rebellion.

  • In 2012, he returned to acting, starring in the Singapore film, Timeless Love.

  • In 2014, Mr Pang was crowned one of the “8 Dukes of Caldecott Hill” which comprised of eight promising young Chinese Mediacorp actors of the 2010s.

  • Three years later, in 2017, Mr Pang chose not to renew his contract with Mediacorp, but continued to film for the company on an ad-hoc basis.

  • That same year, however, Mr Pang was fined S$2,000 and banned from driving for 18 months after he was charged for drink driving.

  • He was cast as the male lead in the upcoming Channel 8 drama My One in a Million, but the role will be recast. Filming is due to start in February after the Chinese New Year break.
