A 33-year-old woman and a one-year-old infant were found dead at the foot of a block of Housing Board flats in Eunos on Sunday afternoon.

When contacted, the police said they were alerted to the fall at Block 35 Eunos Crescent at about 12.40pm.

The woman and the baby were found lying motionless and were pronounced dead at the scene, they added.

It is believed that the pair are mother and daughter, reported Chinese-language news outlet Lianhe Zaobao.

An eyewitness told Zaobao he saw that two people had fallen from the building when he left his flat after hearing a loud noise.

The child was wearing a diaper, he added.

Zaobao reported that two blue tents were spotted at the scene.

The police went to a unit on the fourth floor, believed to be where the pair lived, to conduct investigations.

Based on preliminary findings, the police do not suspect foul play.
