The body of a man was found hanging from a tree at Hun Yeang Road near Tampines Road on Oct. 30, 2019 at around 6.44am.
Photos and a video of the body of the man and Singapore Civil Defence Force personnel were uploaded to Facebook by a user who emphasised the photos weren't taken by him.
The video of the location of the incident supposedly showed the man hanging from the tree before the arrival of SCDF personnel on the scene.
Here is SCDF's statement to Mothership.
"On 30 Oct at about 6.44am, SCDF dispatched a fire engine and an ambulance. Upon arrival, the body of a man was found hanging on a tree.
SCDF firefighters pitched a ladder and brought the body down. The man was pronounced dead at scene by an SCDF paramedic."
We have also reached out to the police for further statement.
