On June 8, former actor Joshua Ang penned a lengthy blog post on his horrifying experience with a confinement nanny, whose actions almost caused his newborn son, Jed, to lose his life.
Thankfully, the now eight-month-old boy managed to recover, and is now healthy.
Although Ang and his wife, Shannon Low, shared the traumatic experience close to a year later, it was widely met with outrage and anger, directed at the nanny.
Some even advised Ang to seek legal recourse.
Speaking to Shin Min Daily News, Ang revealed that he has plans to make a police report, and also wishes to bring the matter to court.
