The fireman killed during a training exercise last week was buried in the 'cemetery for heroes' yesterday, but refused full service honours. Alan Ng Wai-kwong, 34, received a civilian burial in Gallant Garden after Fire Services director Peter Cheung refused requests for full service honours, because he had not 'died in action'. Ng died of organ failure brought on by heatstroke after he collapsed in a 60-degree crisis simulation chamber. 'His family requested he be buried at Gallant Garden and for some of his fellow recruits to be pall bearers . . . but the director made a decision that because he did not die in action we would not be organising a service funeral for the recruit,' a fire services spokesman said. Ng's family had originally rejected offers to bury him at the cemetery, because the body will probably have to be exhumed and moved in about six years. 'We changed our minds because he is a hero in our hearts and deserves a place there,' a family spokesman said.
