SINGAPORE: Traffic was disrupted at Yishun Avenue 2 during evening rush hour on Thursday (Jun 14) as Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers rescued a woman walking on the roof of an overhead bridge.
Videos and photos circulating on social media showed air bags deployed on the scene and a large crowd of onlookers gathered nearby.
In some photos, officers are seen climbing up the covered walkway. One video shows them dragging her to safety.
An alert on the SMRT Connect app said bus services 169, 883 and 965 for both directions from Yishun Avenue 2 to Yishun Ring Road were temporarily diverted due to a "safety and security" incident. At around 6.15pm, an update on the app said bus services were operating normally.
