A 14-month-old child was sent to hospital for smoke inhalation when loan sharks allegedly set fire to his parents' rental flat just two weeks after moving in.

This is just outrageous!  >:(

If only the parents hadn't borrowed money from loan-sharks.  Really irresponsible for the parents to endanger the life of their child .... :-\

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!!!!

Unker, this is a rental flat from HDB.  Nothing much they could have done.  Considering the long waiting list for HDB rental flats, I think rejecting this one meant they have to wait a long time for the next one.
