Man, 76, found dead in flat filled with trash
SCDF officers take an hour to reach body amid mounds of junk
The sight confronting firemen was staggering: The four-room flat was a dense forest of discarded items piled up to the ceiling.
They took about an hour to plough through the mounds of mess before they reached the home owner. He was dead.
The 76-year-old man, who lived alone, was found in the living room of his home in Block 132, Bedok Reservoir Road.
The discovery was made on Monday. It is not known how long he had been dead. On Tuesday, the police said they were informed at 8.30pm on Monday about a foul smell coming from the flat.
