The clip, which lasted more than two minutes, seemingly showed police officers standing at the foot of Block 36 Eunos Crescent.
The woman was standing on the ledge outside a fifth-floor window while holding on to the grille.
Despite the officers’ attempt to dissuade her, she eventually jumped from the ledge.
According to SCDF, she’d jumped before a safety life air pack could be set up.
After some moments, SCDF officers, together with police officers, went over and attended to the woman lying on the ground.
She was eventually conveyed to Changi General Hospital.
