SINGAPORE (Reuters) – A 26-year-old employee of Alfredo Bar 1-Altitude crashed into a manhole on the roof of One Raffles Place shortly after midnight on Sunday (June 9).
He was reportedly a security officer at the bar.
Both the police and the Manpower Ministry are investigating.
Police told The Straits Times that the man from Singapore was found lying in a building pit on the site. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The ST understands that no foul play has been suspected.
Police, who were informed of the incident at 1:26 am on Sunday, classified her as unnatural.
The 1-Altitude bar, which sits on the roof of the 63-storey building, is considered the largest outdoor bar in the world.
He said on his Facebook page Sunday, about four hours after the incident, that his rooftop bar would be temporarily closed "due to some rectification work." Its internal club will remain open to the public, added the post on Facebook.
CNA news site reported that the man was a part-time security agent at 1-Altitude and had been with the company for less than a year.
The Labor Ministry said the man had fallen into a four-meter-deep pit in a secluded area for cleaning up outside buildings.
His spokesman added that all the cleaning work on the exterior was interrupted during the investigations.
The One Raffles Place building is owned by developer OUB Center, and the main contractor for cleaning work is A & P Maintenance Services.
ST has contacted 1-Altitude, OUB Center and A & P for comments.
