R.I.P Dr Marcus Lim

According to by Asha Popatlal

SINGAPORE: A 37-year-old eye doctor died on Saturday in a diving accident off Pulau Aur, Malaysia. Details of the incident remain sketchy. Sources said his body was taken to Mersing Hospital and has since been brought back to Singapore.

Dr Marcus Lim was an avid photographer, and a very experienced diver, according to friends Channel NewsAsia spoke to. The Singapore National Eye Centre, where he worked, said the doctor was a promising registrar in ophthalmology and a young aspiring clinician-scientist, who was awarded the National Medical Research Council fellowship just this year.

In a statement, the centre's Medical Director, Professor Donald Tan, said the centre shares this loss with his family. Dr Lim leaves behind his wife and a young son.

I happen to came across his website where he showcase some of his photographs. It's very impressive. Here's the link.
