The traffic disruption was due to Yishun Avenue 2 as well as the roads between Yishun Ring Road and Yishun Avenue 7 being closed for the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) to deploy air bags.

Numerous videos have been circulating on social media of the incident.

It was reported that the police were alerted to the incident at around 4.55pm. After the woman was brought down from the overhead bridge, she was arrested for attempted suicide.

Not only did SCDF officers deploy a large airbag beneath the overhead bridge, they also climbed up the covered walkway in order to rescue the woman. SCDF officers had to drag her down to safety and she was taken to Khoo Teck Puat hospital for any injuries to be treated.

By 6.15pm, traffic was back to normal, including bus services 169, 883 and 965 that were temporarily diverted.

Many onlookers took pictures and videos of the incident and have shared it on social media.
