Singapore: Every day for the past month, businessman Joseph Loy would cry in a corner
at Block Four of Singapore General Hospital while his daughter Megan Loy fought for her life in a ward upstairs.
The 18-year-old suffered severe burns on 80% of her body after a huge fire broke out at a water park in Taipei on June 27.
Around 1,000 revellers had gathered for the annual Colour Play Asia festival, in which coloured powder was thrown on partygoers.
There was a huge blast when the powder caught fire. Ten people have died and 339 more are still being treated in Taiwan.
Five of Megan’s friends, who suffered 30% to 50% burns, are still hospitalised in Hong Kong and Shanghai.
Doctors had earlier said Megan had a one-in-five chance of survival. But last Tuesday, they revealed her skin grafts had been successful so far and her burn wounds had been reduced to only five percent of her body. [FULL STORY]
