Two women and an infant were injured after a fire broke out on a yacht at ONE°15 Marina Club at Sentosa Cove yesterday.
One of the women is understood to be in serious condition, while the infant suffered injuries to the face.
The victims are in Singapore General Hospital (SGH).
Twelve other people, including some who had helped to put out the fire, were taken to SGH or National University Hospital with injuries from smoke inhalation.
A boat technician at the marina said he saw several people, including a woman carrying the baby, screaming as they ran from the burning yacht, which was berthed in a fuel dock.
Mr Derrick Sim, 33, and two colleagues from the boat maintenance team joined the club's emergency response team to fight the blaze before the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) arrived.
