A man’s body was found floating in the Singapore River, near the Asian Civilisations Museum, yesterday (30 July) morning.

Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers, who were alerted to the incident around 8.25am, told the press that the body was “manually retrieved” from the water. An SCDF paramedic pronounced the person – believed to be a Chinese man in his 40’s – dead at the scene.

Yahoo Singapore reported that a Crime Scene Investigation van and other police vehicles were parked near the ACM, around 11am. The police had covered the body with a blue tent and cordoned the surrounding area off.

This is not the first time a dead body was found in the Singapore River. Last July, the body of a man was found submerged in the Singapore River near Robertson Quay.
