In a video circulating on Facebook, paramedics and what appear to be police officers stood on a pathway shelter that extended from the foot of the block.
An ambulance was also parked next to the shelter.
The commotion in question was apparently at Block 34 Whampoa West, an HDB block with a famously long corridor.
According to 8World News, it was believed that a lady had fallen from a height onto the shelter.
As officers and paramedics attended to the lady on top of the shelter, some cops stood guard nearby.
Lady reportedly succumbed to injuries after conveyance to hospital
In response to MS News’ queries, SCDF said they were alerted to the case at about 5.15pm on Friday (14 Jan).
Upon arriving at the scene, SCDF officers manually rescued a person from the roof of the walkway.
They subsequently conveyed the individual to the nearby Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
According to a police statement cited by 8World News, the casualty was a 33-year-old lady who was in a half-conscious state upon arrival at the hospital.
Unfortunately, she succumbed to her injuries shortly after.
The police are currently investigating the case, but have preliminarily ruled out the possibility of murder.
May she rest in peace
It’s saddening to hear about anyone passing away in such a manner — one can only imagine the pain the lady had to go through.
