"The man was lying down on the grass and yelling non-stop for almost 30 minutes," said Bryan.

"When the police and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) came, he was not making any more noise."

The SCDF told Stomp it responded to a call for medical assistance at the said location at about 9.15pm.

In response to a Stomp media query, the police said it was alerted to a case of attempted suicide at about 9.15pm.

A 51-year-old man was conscious when taken to National University Hospital (NUH), a police spokesman said.

He was subsequently arrested in relation to the case.
