Myanmar Fish Farmer Found Dead Near Lim Chu Kang
On October 27, at 12:35 PM, the fish farmer's colleague reported to the police that his co-worker was missing and noticed he was nowhere to be found.
The missing person was said to be reliable at work, and he won't go without telling others.
He said, "I don't know much about his private life... but in terms of work, he was quite a responsible person,"
His colleagues asked about his whereabouts. And found out that he had dinner and his friends the night before missing.
Unfortunately, at 7:15 AM, the missing fish farmer was found lifeless, floating in the waters near Lim Chu Kang.
After receiving a call, the police arrived at the scene and discovered that the man was a Myanmar national. And he has been working on a fish farm at the coast of northern Singapore for five years.
A worker recorded a video of removing the body from the waters. Based on the video, the people used a fishnet to manage the body with the help of the police and MPA (Marine and Port Authority of Singapore).
According to the preliminary investigations, there is no suspicion of foul play. But, police will continue further examinations to identify the probable cause of death.
As a sympathy to the families left behind (his two daughters), the fish farmers decided to raise a fund.
Even though the cause of his death is still unknown, some people believe that this man might be drunk and drowned himself.
Based on the Singapore Food Agency (SFA), there are 121 registered fish farms islandwide. The sea-based fish farm has a total of 109, while the 12 can are inland. Most of the fish farmworkers are not Singaporeans and appear from different countries in the world. His death was the second Myanmar national fish farmer this year.
