SINGAPORE: A tragic discovery was made early on Monday morning (25 Sep) at Block 104 Bukit Batok Central when a 29-year-old female domestic worker was found dead outside the kitchen window of a third-floor residential unit.
The incident was reported at approximately 6:20 am.
A disturbing video circulating on social media platforms depicts the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) personnel on-site, making efforts to retrieve the body.
As per SCDF’s official statement, they arrived to find a person hanging outside the kitchen window. Safety ropes were used to secure and subsequently lower the individual to the second floor.
The female was pronounced dead at the scene by an SCDF paramedic.
Mothership, a local media outlet, received confirmation from the police that the deceased was a 29-year-old woman.
As of now, the case is classified as an unnatural death. Although preliminary investigations suggest no foul play, police officials have emphasized that the investigations are still ongoing.
Gutzy’s sources have identified the deceased as an Indonesian domestic worker.
Disturbingly, another domestic worker claimed that the deceased was not granted leave, with her personal effects, including her mobile phone, allegedly retained by her employer, thereby preventing her from contacting her family.
If you or someone you know is grappling with suicidal thoughts, assistance and support are accessible.
