According to a report in The Straits Times, the call was from 20-year-old student and part-time delivery rider Mohamed Nasrullah. He said that his younger brother had told him about a woman lying motionless on the ground floor. When he got there, about 10 people were at the scene. He called the police and officers arrived in 10 minutes.

He said: “The bystanders were standing around without calling the police so I decided to… make the call.”

Another person called the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF).

Mr Mohamed Nasrullah said he had not seen the victim in the neighbourhood in the past.
