With scarce information shared in the Facebook posts, the man who saved the boy was mistaken for his father.
However, the child’s mum has revealed what happened that day.
In a Facebook post on Aug 10, she shared that her son had slipped out of their home in Pasir Ris as the handyman working on the CCTV had left the gate open.
Realising that her son was missing, the worried mum immediately ran out to look for him at the nearby pond.
However, the boy had headed in the opposite direction and later dashed onto a road along Pasir Ris Drive 1.
“He has no sense of danger as he is a child [with special needs],” she wrote.
