A man serving his alternative military service died yesterday shortly after he collapsed while weeding, the National Conscription Agency said.

The 22-year-old serviceman, identified only by his surname, Chen (陳), collapsed and began convulsing shortly after 9am when he and some of his colleagues were weeding behind a restaurant at Chengkungling in Taichung.
