of "Heartening to see how readily S'poreans help woman having seizure"

With regards to STOMP article, "Heartening to see how readily S'poreans help woman having seizure", I just wonder how the STOMPer knew that the good Samaritans in the heart-warming article are Singaporeans. See, they may be foreigners--and not necessarily Singaporeans. Unless of course, the STOMPer inquired the nationality of the caring individuals.

Instead of the word 'Singaporeans' in the article, I'd prefer the more accurate 'people in Singapore'.

Keep up the good work, Singaporeans people in Singapore!

Quoted from the STOMP article:

STOMPer Seaeagle was proud to see these Singaporeans step forward and assist a woman, who apparently had a seizure and collapsed near MacDonald House in Dhoby Ghaut this afternoon (Oct 20).

The STOMPer compares this to a recent story where a 2-year-old girl who was run over by a truck in China, and 18 passers-by did not come to her aid.

The STOMPer wrote:

"At around 1pm today, I spotted a woman who seemed to be having an epileptic seizure near MacDonald House on Orchard Road.

"Luckily, there were many good Samaritans nearby to help.

"So Singaporeans are not like apathetic and always inconsiderate.

"This is not the first time I have witnessed people stepping up to help someone in need -- I was at Chinatown when a man had a seizure and people came forward to help him.

"What a contrast to the recent case in China where a Chinese toddler who was ignored by 18 passers-by after being the victim of a hit-and-run accident in a wholesale market in southern China.

"Keep up the good work, Singaporeans!"
