A 40-year-old man was found dead at the foot of Block 263, Bishan Street 22. It was around 9.30am on Wednesday (Oct 12). 

Stomper Sam was sitting at a nearby coffee shop when he saw two ambulances and a police car move past. 

"It seemed like a big incident and I thought I should go check it out."

He then spotted the death tent and two police officers with shields nearby.

A police spokesperson told Stomp:

"On 12 Oct 2016 at 9.20am, the police were alerted to an incident at Block 263, Bishan Street 22."

"A 40-year-old was found motionless at the foot of said block."

"He was pronounced dead by the paramedics at the scene."

"Police are investigating the unnatural death."

This is apparently the second death in the same vicinity in two months.
