“That’s when myself and a few others saw the body on the ground,” said the passer-by. He added that the police later cordoned off the area to prevent people gathering at the scene.

Police have classified the case as an unnatural death. Investigations are ongoing.

There are two towers at the address — one of 62 storeys and the other of 38 storeys.

According to CNA, the youth was a guest at Synergyinthesky’s 1-Altitude, a rooftop bar in the 62-storey building. The company confirmed that it is committed to the safety and security of its patrons and staff. It is working closely with the authorities during their  investigations.

The management of One Raffles Place also noted cooperation with the police and relevant authorities with regard to the incident. /TISG
