Body of 36-year-old woman found in waters of East Coast Park

The body of a 36-year-old woman was discovered at East Coast Park on Friday (May 7).

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they received a call for assistance at 4.50am.

A spokesman added: "The body of a 36-year-old woman was subsequently found and retrieved from the waters at East Coast Park near carpark B2."

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), who received a call for assistance at around 7.50am, said the woman was pronounced dead at the scene by a paramedic.

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

A 58-year-old fisherman told Shin Min Daily News that he did not notice anything unusual when he went out to sea at around 5am and only learnt about the drowning when he returned at about 9am.

Another 52-year-old fisherman said the body belonged to a Chinese woman who was clad in a light-colored shirt with short sleeves and a pair of dark shorts.

Police investigations are ongoing.
