Body of man in 60s found in Kallang River

Body of man in 60s found in Kallang River


The body of a man in his 60s was found in the area near Water-Venture (Kallang) before the Singapore Flyer, which is frequented by

dragon-boaters and picnic- goers on weekends. According to a report in The Straits Times, the police said they received a call at about

10.40am yesterday morning. When they arrived at the scene, they found a man who was ¡°lying motionless¡±. The Singapore

Civil Defence Force (SCDF) dispatched an ambulance. An SCDF spokesman said the body, which was 100m from the shoreline, was

¡°manually retrieved¡±. Paramedics pronounced the man dead at the scene. Members of the Waterways Watch Society, a volunteer group

which patrols and does water testing at the Kallang River in collaboration with the PUB, Land Transport Authority and National Parks Board,

were shocked by the incident. Tax administrator Patricia Sng, 39, who was on a boat patrol, said it was the first time she had seen a body

in the river in the five years she had been with the group.
