A 20-year-old man was arrested for attempted suicide at Block 613C Punggol Drive yesterday (Feb 19).

"There were police cars and ambulances, and the area was cordoned off," she said.

When she looked up she saw a man sitting on a ledge.

"I think he was on the top floor, the 16th storey," she said.

"A 20-year-old man was arrested in relation to the case," he said.
