The incident happened at Tiong Bahru Plaza around 3pm, reports Shin Min Daily News.
According to eyewitnesses, the man appeared to be in his 20s to 30s. After hearing a loud sound similar to a car crash, they saw the man lying on the ground.
Although the mall was not crowded, the fall shocked many shoppers, they said.
One of the eyewitnesses told the daily that the man started coughing and vomiting blood. But no one approached him.
Another eyewitness, surnamed Huang, said a woman working in the mall took out a first-aid kit and attempted to help him.
However, other onlookers purportedly told the woman not to touch the man and that she should wait for police and paramedics to arrive instead.
After police were on the scene, they cordoned off the area while Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers tried to resuscitate him.
