The body of a 57-year-old man was retrieved from the waters at Changi Point Ferry Terminal on the eve of Chinese New Year.

A Stomper shared a photo of police at the scene while the search was ongoing.

"A man went down to retrieve his stuck fishing hook and did not come up," said the Stomper.

Photos were also posted on Reddit.

The caption read: "SCDF (Singapore Civil Defence Force), SPF (Singapore Police Force) and divers were present to search for the missing man who allegedly fished from several spots before jumping into the water. Onlookers called the police when he didn’t resurface after a few minutes.

"Search continued well into the night, with floodlights to assist. His slippers and can of beer are shown in the last pic."

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted on Feb 9 at about 4.15pm to a case of suspected drowning near 51 Lorong Bekukong, which is the address for Changi Point Ferry Point.

A Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore patrol craft and an SCDF Marine Rescue Vessel were deployed to search for the man in the waters.

He was subsequently found the next day and pronounced dead at the scene.

Preliminary investigations do not suspect foul play, said the police, adding that investigations are ongoing.
