The Chinese Garden was shut yesterday evening (4 AUG) after a deteriorated body of a 42-year-old female was discovered gliding close to the shore of Jurong Lake.
The Singapore Civil Defense Force (SCDF) was alarmed at 1.50pm and sent two flame bicycles, a Red Rhino, a flame motor and a rescue vehicle to the scene.
The police cordoned off the White Rainbow Bridge, which permits guests to cross the lake to enter principle attractions, for example, the Garden Courtyard.
A police tent was set up by the shore.
A security watchman, who declined to be named, said he had quite recently had his lunch when he heard a confusion at the scaffold.
He saw a substantial group there and got some answers concerning the body from his boss.
He said: “I was extremely stunned to catch wind of this. I never anticipated that something like this would happen.”
