The body of a man was found floating in waters along Marina Bay on Saturday (Dec 25) morning.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told AsiaOne that they received a call for assistance at 6 Bayfront Avenue, where the ArtScience Museum is located, at about 8.50am.
"Upon SCDF's arrival, a body was seen floating in the water. SCDF rescuers retrieved the body from the surface of the water."
The man was pronounced dead at the scene by a SCDF paramedic.
Responding to AsiaOne's queries, the Singapore Police Force said that they received a call for assistance at 8.25am. They confirmed that the body of a 68 year-old-man was retrieved from the waters.
Based on preliminary investigations, no foul play is suspected. Police investigations are currently ongoing.
In August, a 45-year-old man drowned after taking on a dare from a Facebook group to swim across the Singapore River during the Chinese ghost month. The man, who was known to have a penchant for paranormal challenges, had gone on Facebook Live before jumping into the water.
His body was found the following day by the SCDF's Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team (DART).
