Man falls to death at Sengkang West Way construction site

SINGAPORE: A man has died after falling off a 27—storey building under construction at a Sengkang West Way worksite on Tuesday morning.

The 32—year—old China national’s body was found at the foot of the building and pronounced dead on site by paramedics.

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) said the worker was plastering a wall on the roof of the building when he fell through an opening. He was part of a team of four workers.

The main contractor, Chiu Teng Construction Co Pte Ltd, was engaged by the Housing and Development Board to construct four blocks of 27—storey public residential housing and a four—storey multi—storey carpark.

The contractor has been instructed to stop all plastering work on the roof as well as all work from height.

Police are investigating the case as an unnatural death.
