33 Year Old Man Found Dead At Swissotel The Stamford

A 33-year-old man was found dead on Wednesday (Jun 3) at Swissotel The Stamford, just days after an Australian woman died in a fall at the same hotel.

SCDF was requested for ambulance assistance at 1.10pm, and the man was pronounced dead at scene by paramedics.

Police also said they received a call for help at 1.10pm at 2, Stamford Road, and found a man lying motionless at the said location.

“Police are investigating the unnatural death,” a spokesperson added.

An eyewitness, who was about 50 metres away when the body fell to the ground, told Channel NewsAsia that the body landed between the hotel’s main entrance and the Raffles City Shopping Centre McDonald’s entrance.

“I think it must have been from very high up because the sound was very loud. People from the hotel were also looking down, while those around were stunned,” the eyewitness, who requested to remain anonymous, said.

Manager for Marketing Communications at Swissotel Denice Lim also told Channel NewsAsia: “As it has just happened very recently, we are currently working with the police. The safety of our guests is paramount to us as well.”

Another hotel executive, Marketing Communications Director Vivian Tung, said: “It is certain that the balconies are on review after these events. It’s in the process of being implemented and reviewed. Every balcony has a lock. Based on guest requests, we have unlocked and locked balcony doors but the balconies remain an operational thing.”

Five days earlier on May 30, an Australian woman in her 50s was found dead at the parapet of the second floor of the same hotel. Channel NewsAsia understands that she fell from the 60th floor of the building. No foul play is suspected, the earlier report said.
