SINGAPORE - A man at an industrial estate in Bedok was injured after an air-conditioning unit apparently fell and hit him on Wednesday (June 28).

SCDF said it responded to an emergency at 3018 Bedok North Street 5 at around 5.40pm. 

The man was taken to Changi General Hospital in an ambulance.

An SCDF spokesman said that it is still confirming details on how the incident occurred.
