A 49-year-old cleaner collapsed and died at the rooftop of a hall of residence in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) on Friday afternoon.

Mr Ibrahim Moidu, who has worked at water tank sterilising company YPI Clrwater for about six years, was preparing to clean a water tank at the top of the hall when he complained he felt tired, said his supervisor Mr Eksan Othman.

"He just sat down but fell over and started bleeding from his nose and mouth," said Mr Othman.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said they received a call at around noon and paramedics responding to the case pronounced Mr Moidu dead at the scene. Police investigations are ongoing.
