Ma Chi, a 31-year old Chinese businessman, was involved in a fatal accident in Singapore on Saturday morning. Ma was reeking of alcohol when his body was extricated from his crumpled Ferrari in the aftermath of the accident, but the Chinese tabloid claimed that he did not drink at a clan gathering that night.
For some strange reasons, Ma Chi was found with another young Chinese woman in his Ferrari who is not his wife.
The Straits Times then tried another stunning spin by quoting from his friends that he was not a 'heavy drinker'. It then went on to promote his wealth instead of holding him accountable for the accident:
"Mr Ma's wife, known only as Madam He, told Wanbao that her husband had bought a $3 million condominium in the East Coast and a $400,000 BMW. The Ferrari was a $1.8 million limited edition car that he bought for his 30th birthday last year."
Ma was described as a ‘tall, capable, young and handsome’ tycoon who arrived from Sichuan province a few years ago. He was reportedly active in a local clan association for Sichuan natives and was “in the process of applying for permanent residency here before the accident.”
There was little mention made of the Singaporean cabby Cheng Hock Teck who passed away yesterday evening or the Japanese lady passenger in his car who died earlier.
Ma was pronounced dead on the spot and eye-witnesses said his head was almost severed with his neck veins popping out and limbs dismembered, an indication of how fast he was driving before ramming his Ferrari into the taxi.
