Singapore national swimmer Roanne Ho survives brush with death

Roanne Ho’s hopes of qualifying for August’s Olympics may have suffered a blow, but the swimmer is just happy to be alive after surviving a life-threatening condition.

On Wednesday, the SEA Games 50m breaststroke champion went to Bukit Batok Polyclinic to seek treatment for what she thought was “a very bad cough”.

But an X-ray showed her right lung had collapsed 80 per cent. Ho was rushed to the accident and emergency department at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.
