Residents of Block 634 Bedok Reservoir Road were shocked when a part of the building's external facade fell to the ground on Thursday afternoon (Nov 8).

Stomper Syed, a resident of the block, alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos of the debris left at the bottom of the building.

In his photos, the area had been cordoned off with tape.

 

The Stomper told Stomp that the part of the external facade that had gotten dislodged was somewhere around the ninth floor.

"It was scary as I live in that building," said Syed, who lives on the fourth floor.

"Luckily no one was around when it happened."

In response to a Stomp media query, the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council said it was alerted to the matter at about 3.20pm.

They said they immediately cordoned off the affected area as a safety precaution.

"We are working with the relevant authorities and investigation to the external facade is in progress," a spokesman said.
