An employee there said they were aware of the "urgency about wanting to get him back as soon as possible".

He underwent abdominal surgery on the same evening at Waikato Hospital, Hamilton, New Zealand. The Exercise Thunder Warrior is a live-firing exercise hosted by the New Zealand defence force (NZDF).

Pang died Wednesday from injuries sustained during a military training exercise in New Zealand.

In the aftermath, MG Goh said the army has called for a safety pause to the artillery training in New Zealand and also for an immediate pause on all maintenance-related work and training, both in New Zealand as well as in Singapore.

The Ministry of Defence released a statement on Wednesday night announcing an independent Committee of Inquiry to investigate the circumstances leading to Pang's d‌ea‌t‌h.

The 28-year-old actor was injured on Saturday while he was carrying out repairs inside a Singapore Self-Propelled Howitzer, a motorised piece of artillery that looks similar to a small tank.

"And this is also a good time for us to remind all our soldiers for taking care of their own personal safety, as well as that of their fellow buddies and soldiers".

"We all broke down when the medical team spoke to us that his condition is worsening and we should be prepared for the worst".

Pang's Singapore-based agency, NoonTalk Media, asked his fans to "continue to pray for Aloysius".

"We're going to lose a brother".

Nintendo is returning to Retro Studios to develop the project this time. "We did not make this decision lightly", Takahashi said. Make that, restarting development from the beginning.

Her twin sister, Hayley Woo had also posted about how Aloysius was planning to marry Jayley in a few years' time.

"In this life, I did not have the fortune to become your wife".

"Why did you leave me alone?" "Why did you leave me behind without a word?".

She wrote: "I now realise that yesterday you have been struggling to hold on for everyone's sake.my face is swollen to the point where I can't recognise myself".

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

Pang was inside the Howitzer to fix it when he was injured, the ministry said.

The operationally ready national serviceman had then responded with a photograph of himself in uniform.

He is the latest person to die during training with the Singapore military.

The mortuary technician told Channel News Asia that military and police deaths in New Zealand usually fall under the coroner's jurisdiction.

Born on August 24, 1990 in Singapore as Wei Chong Pang, he is known for C.L.I.F. (2011), The Truth Seekers (2016) and Young & Fabulous (2016).
