WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Singapore's defence ministry says actor Aloysius Pang has been seriously injured during a military training exercise in New Zealand.
The ministry said the 28-year-old actor was injured on Saturday while he was repairing a Singapore Self-Propelled Howitzer, a motorized piece of artillery that looks similar to a small tank.
The ministry said the actor, also known as Pang Wei Chong, was participating in Exercise Thunder Warrior at the Waiouru training area on New Zealand's North Island.
The actor was evacuated by helicopter to Waikato Hospital in Hamilton where he underwent surgery.
He is known for his work on the movie "Young & Fabulous" (2016) as well as television series that include "The Truth Seekers" (2016) and "C.L.I.F." (2011).
