SINGAPORE — A 20-year-old woman has died after falling from a 50-storey sky bridge at the Pinnacle@Duxton.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it responded to a rescue incident involving “a person sitting on a ledge” at 1B Cantonment Road at about 730pm on Monday (14 October). As a precautionary measure, the SCDF deployed two safety life air packs.

“The person jumped and fell beyond the air packs. The person was pronounced dead at the scene by SCDF paramedics,” the SCDF said.

The police have classified the incident as a case of unnatural death and investigations are ongoing.
