    Missing S'porean undergrad's body found

    THE body of the Singaporean student who went missing in the waters off Changi was found on Tuesday - the last person to be accounted for in a spate of drownings along the island's eastern coast.

    Mr Goh Chuan Kiet, 23, was found near Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal at around 6.20pm, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said in a statement yesterday.

    The SIM Global Education undergraduate disappeared on Sunday afternoon, while paddle-boarding with schoolmates from his university's windsurfing club, according to media reports.

    On Monday afternoon, Vietnamese national Tran Huy Tho, 24, went missing after swimming in the sea at East Coast Park. His body was recovered the next morning.

    In a separate case, the body of a 17-month-old boy was found floating in the waters near Bedok Jetty on Monday night. His mother, Lim Ann Nee, 44, who was rescued off East Coast Park waters about three hours earlier on the same day, has been charged with murder. She is believed to be remanded at Changi Medical Centre for psychiatric evaluation.
