Life and death

How can a 25-year old platoon commander from the Officer Cadet School of the Singapore Armed Forces, who just last month came in 23rd out of 1,369 runners in a 10-kilometre marathon collapse and die in the 21-km Singapore Bay Run, which is also known as the Safra Sheares Bridge Run & Army Half Marathon 2007?

Yes, this run is twice the distance of the previous run, but being an active soldier and a marathoner to boot, it shouldn't have been a problem. But surprisingly, it turned out differently - all of which goes to show that one can never be certain about life, how long one will live, or even how healthy we will remain.

My condolences go out to the family of the deceased.
