Not the place to be hanging out

The driver of this Sembcorp rubbish truck ended up in a precarious position after an accident on the third-storey ramp of an incineration complex at Attap Valley Road in Senoko yesterday evening. 

A photo circulating on WhatsApp showed a man in the front car of a Sembcorp truck dangling over a railing.

A Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officer is shown at the site, along with what appears to be an SCDF vehicle on the paved road below.

SCDF said that it received a call for help at about 7.20pm for a driver who was trapped in a garbage truck on the third-level ramp of an incineration complex at 30 Attap Valley.

As the truck was slightly over the ramp edge, SCDF had to rescue the male driver using an aerial rescue platform, said the spokesman.

The driver had abrasions on his right arm and was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

The Straits Times has contacted Sembcorp and Senoko for more information.
