With 30 deaths and 130 still missing, the tragedy in Laos is indeed a huge call for help. When the Laos dam gave in last July 23, it was the poor villagers in the surrounding area that suffered the wreck.
Straight from Singapore, three of their BEST SNIFFERS were deployed. For the first time in history, Singapore Police Force (SPF) K-9 unit sniffers were sent to an overseas mission.
There were a total of three sniffers shipped to help in the search and rescue operations, and indeed, it was a successful trip!
The successful recovery of the bodies of the victims of the tragedy was made possible by the imported sniffers, plus of course the 32-member Home Team contingent.
