A paramedic pronounced him dead on the spot

Just as the police was about to arrive, the man apparently stopped struggling and started vomiting.

According to a Singapore Police Force spokesperson, the man was motionless and without a pulse when the police arrived.

Officers attempted to resuscitate him by performing CPR but to no avail. He was subsequently pronounced dead by a paramedic.
