At about 10am, a tattooed man wearing only a pair of black shorts was spotted standing on the window ledge of a 5th floor flat unit at the block, hanging on to the window panes with his hands.
SCDF and police officers were on scene, together with officers from the Special Operations Command.
The man appeared frustrated and kept saying that he wanted to kill himself.
When agitated, he would violently shake the window panes he was holding on to.
After a 2-hour standoff with police, the man decided to let it go and made the big leap.
But by that time, SCDF officers had already inflated an air bag in the area below him.
The man landed on the air bag and appeared to have suffered injuries to his forehead and legs.
He was swiftly scooped up and sent to hospital for treatment.
