An eyewitness saw that the body was mangled on impact and only the legs could be seen. SCDF was requested for ambulance assistance at 1.10pm, and the man was pronounced dead by SCDF Paramedics.
This is the comments by an eye witness:
“I think it must have been from very high up because the sound was very loud. People from the hotel were also looking down, while those around were stunned,” the eyewitness, who requested to remain anonymous, said.
Manager for Marketing Communications at Swissotel Denice Lim also told Channel NewsAsia: “As it has just happened very recently, we are currently working with the police. The safety of our guests is paramount to us as well.”
