Man, 20, Sent to Hospital After Falling from Height at Changi Airport: What We Know So Far

A 20-year-old man was found lying on the floor at a taxi stand at Changi Airport Terminal 1 on Saturday (23 March) after seemingly falling from a higher floor in the same building. The police had been alerted to the fall from height in the premises around 4.10pm. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) also received an alert and found the man lying on the floor when the ambulance arrived. According to reports, the man, believed to be a foreigner, was conscious when SCDF arrived and he was immediately sent to Changi General Hospital.

When a reporter visited the site, one of the metal handrails at the taxi stand was bent, apparently from the impact of the fall. Witnesses shared that the man was reaching over the glass barrier with his hands outstretched to take a photo from the floor above when he accidently tumbled over the barrier, resulting in the fall.

Another user on a social media platform shared a photo of the man lying face down between handrails that has since been deleted. The incident is currently under investigation by the police.
