No crew or passengers were on board when the incident happened, SIA said. One engineer was in the aircraft at the time but he was not hurt, the airline added.

"We do not have details of damage to the aircraft at this point. An assessment will be carried out after it is removed from the gate. Singapore Airlines will be co-operating fully with the authorities in their investigations,” SIA said.
