The Singapore Civil Defence Force told The Straits Times that it dispatched an ambulance to 2 Flora Drive at 12.05pm on Tuesday.

A woman in her 20s was sent to Changi General Hospital and the hospital was on standby to receive her, said SCDF.

Her employer, who declined to be named, told Shin Min that the maid has been working in Singapore for only a month. The employer added that no one was at home at the time of the incident, apart from an elderly woman.
