Dragon boater remembered as “obedient son”

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 27, 2007

Filial and obedient is how dragon boater Chee Wei Cheng’s cousin remembers fondly of him. ‘He is always there for his mum and he always acts like a mature adult, and has been this way since young,’ said Mr Wilson Tan. ‘My aunt has lost a very filial son, and she is very fragile.’

Mr Tan, who declined to give details about himself, had accompanied Mr Chee’s mother and younger brother to the accident site in Phnom Penh to pray and say their final farewell to the 20-year-old national dragon boater.

He had died with four others when their boat capsized last Friday after a race on Tonle Sap River. (link)
