Man struck by falling aircon unit in Bedok

A man in his 40s was injured after getting hit by a falling air conditioning unit at the foot of Block 3018 Bedok North Street 5 two days ago (Jun 27).

A video of the incident's aftermath circulating on WhatApp shows paramedics and passersby rendering aid to the victim who was lying on a stretcher. A group of onlookers had also gathered to see what was going on.

In the group's vicinity was the air conditioning unit that was left with a huge dent following the mishap.

It is unclear what caused the air conditioning unit to fall.

Said an SCDF spokesman in response to a Stomp query:

"SCDF was alerted to the incident at around 5.40pm and dispatched one ambulance to the scene.

"A man in his 40s was conveyed to SGH. He was conscious."
