This morning (21 August), at about 6:50am, a man allegedly lost his footing and slipped into Pandan River near Blk 291E along Bukit Batok Street 24.
Pandan River is a 6.1km river located in the west of Singapore that starts from Bukit Batok and winds through Jurong East and Boon Lay Way.
According to Zaobao, someone had called the SCDF at about 6:50am, and SCDF dispatched both fire engines and an ambulance to the area.
In addition, the Disaster Assistance and Rescue Team was called in as well.
Rescue Operations Yielded No Results
When the rescuers arrived, they could not find any sign of a man in the river.
They proceeded to look for the missing person, moving deeper into the river towards Pandan Gardens and conducting visual search via a boat along the river.
The rescue operations extended to West Coast Road, whereby SCDF vehicles were spotted near the river, too.
However, there was still no sign of the man.
Eventually, at around 11:30am, the search operation was called off.
That means the entire operation took about 4.5 hours.
As of now, it’s still unknown if anyone did fall into the river.
