Another dead body has been found at Bedok Reservoir, the eighth so far since June last year.
The decomposed body was found floating on the water and spotted by a passer-by doing his exercise on Sunday morning about 7am.
Police told Yahoo! Singapore they received a call at 6.52am requesting for assistance at Bedok Reservoir.
Upon arrival, the body of a man was found floating in the water. He was pronounced dead by paramedics at the scene.
A Singapore Civil Defence Force spokeswoman told Yahoo! Singapore that they also received a call at 6.57am. Upon arrival, they saw a Chinese male floating on the water and used ropes and lie buoys to get the body up.
Police are investigating the unnatural death.
A spate of six bodies were found in as many months at Bedok Reservoir during mid-June to the end of last year, prompting the Public Utilities Board to improve lighting in the area. Signs showing suicide hotlines were also put up while police patrols were also stepped up.
In the most recent case earlier this year in January, a man's body was also found floating in the reservoir after being spotted wading into the water earlier.
But since then, the area has passed without incident until now.
A clip of a man hitting an office worker – who appears to be an employee under his supervision - has gone viral in Singapore, sparking outrage and calls for the authorities to step in.
