Netizens broke the news of another suicide which took place at the Swissotel the Stamford at about 1PM today. The male suicide victim landed between the hotel’s main entrance and the Raffles City Shopping Center McDonald’s store.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) received information about the suicide at 1.10PM and despatched an ambulance to the scene. The man was declared dead by paramedics on the scene.
“I think it must have been from very high up because the sound was very loud. People from the hotel were also looking down, while those around were stunned,” said an eye witness who was 50 meters away from the scene where the body fell.
Swissotel Marketing Communications Director Vivian Tung said that all balconies will be put on review after these events. Just five days ago on 30th May, an Australian woman had also taken her life by jumping off the 60th floor of the hotel.
