A man died after he was hit by a train on the Bukit Panjang LRT early Friday (March 24) morning.
The Straits Times understands that the man had fallen onto the track at Fajar Station around 1am.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it received a call for assistance at 1.05am and sent one fire engine and one ambulance.
“A male Chinese was pronounced dead at scene by paramedics,” SCDF said.
While many residents said they did not notice anything unusual last night, some heard noises from the station.
“I heard a scratching noise and a boom around 1am, but I thought it was just workers working,” said domestic helper Ms Asrotulida, who goes by one name.
“I didn’t look to see what happened, and went back to sleep as it was late,” said the 30-year-old, who lives near the station. “Sometimes, there is noise due to the works downstairs.”
When ST visited Fajar station on Friday morning, services appeared to be operating as per normal.
