The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) has identified the foreign workers who helped free a three-year-old girl whose head was trapped in between the rails of a clothes drying rack of a flat at Jurong East Street 32.

They will be presenting the good samaritans with the SCDF Public Spiritedness Award this afternoon to "acknowledge the quick thinking and civic-mindedness of the two members of public".

LTC Michael Chua, Deputy Commander 4th SCDF Division will be presenting the award today at 3pm at HQ 4th SCDF Division at Bukit Batok Road.

An SCDF spokesman said: "From the ground floor, they swiftly climbed up to the second floor and released the little girl's head prior to the arrival of the SCDF.
