Jewel Changi Airport is famous for its huge indoor vertical waterfall inside the lifestyle complex.

But the areas that have been getting wet were not just under the waterfall.

Multiple floors wet

On early Friday morning, April 26, sprinkler activation caused water leakage on multiple floors at Jewel Changi Airport.

This is the second water leak in a month that has been reported at the mall.

Cause of leak

A spokesperson for Jewel said: "There was a sprinkler activation in Jewel at about 1am this morning (26 April), which caused water leakage in various levels of Jewel."

"The issue was quickly attended to and resolved with minimal impact to operations."

Two videos uploaded to Facebook by Loh Boon Kwang showed water spraying from the ceiling.
