A student studying at the National University of Singapore (NUS) fell eight stories to her death after trying to get into her residential hall room from a window.

 

According to a report in The New Paper (TNP), the 18-year-old South Korean had locked herself out of her room on the seventh storey of Block C of Sheares Hall on Saturday (28 Oct).

 

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) told Yahoo News Singapore it was alerted to a case of fall from height at 20 Heng Mui Keng Terrace at 11:38am on 28 October. “An 18-year-old woman was unconscious when conveyed to the National University Hospital where she subsequently succumbed to her injuries,” said SPF.

 

Police are investigating the unnatural death.

 

The residents were informed by email of the tragic event on Saturday afternoon. One resident told TNP that a wake was held for the student on Monday evening.

i thought it was in the middle of the night when no one could help her, but it seems like it happened during daytime?

Quite silly...

Rash decision.

Not even need to call locksmith. As some students commented, the hall office sure got spare keys.

Just that foreigners are more gung-ho compared to local kids here. But in this case, resulted in tragic accident.

Haiz, RIP

Young. Condolences to the bereaved family. May they find strength and peace during this time of grief.

The rationale behind her decision is lost on me. But it caused her everything, her life.

I think there is some sort of admin fee though. So she might be trying to avoid paying the fee.

Could have gotten the building management to help.
Be not afraid of moving slowly. Be afraid only of standing still.
