A 37-year-old man was found dead in his car in a multi-storey carpark in Ang Mo Kio yesterday.
He was in the driver's seat with the windows wound down, according to Chinese evening daily Shin Min Daily News.
Police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they received calls about the incident at around 6.20am.
SCDF sent an ambulance to the second floor of the carpark at 5, Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park 2A.
The man was later pronounced dead by paramedics.
The boss of the coffee shop opposite the carpark told Shin Min he had passed by the man's car on the way to work.
When he saw that the man in the car was unconscious and that the car windows were down, he alerted the security guard and called the police.
Another witness, a 54-year-old delivery driver, said the dead man had been using the carpark for the past week, so he might have just started work in the area.
"After lunch or tea, he would wait for an hour or two in the car or fiddle with his cellphone," he told the evening paper.
He said he had parked his vehicle next to the dead man's car for the past three days.
"He looked fine on Wednesday when he was sitting in the car with the engine on."
The police are investigating the case as one of unnatural death.
