Tragic incident claims life of 19-year-old in Sengkang parking lot fall

A 19-year-old girl, reportedly falling from height on Sunday (10 March) in a Sengkang HDB parking lot, was hospitalized in a coma and tragically succumbed to severe injuries.



SINGAPORE: A 19-year-old girl, reportedly having fallen from a height, fell into a coma and tragically passed away after being transported to the hospital on Sunday (10 March), in the parking lot of an HDB housing estate in Sengkang.

The incident occurred on Sunday at 3:40 pm at the multi-story parking lot of Block 117D Rivervale Drive.

According to a report by the Chinese media outlet Shin Min Daily News, nearby cleaners informed the reporter that they promptly responded to clean up bloodstains on the drain cover upon learning of the incident.

“At that time, there was a significant amount of bloodstains, but I am unsure about the identity of the person involved,” said one of the cleaners.

Residents in the vicinity recounted hearing someone shout while they were cooking in their kitchens on that day.

Shortly afterwards, they observed personnel from The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) rushing up to the parking lot.

Upon inquiry, the police confirmed that the 19-year-old girl was transported to the hospital in a comatose state and tragically succumbed to severe injuries.

Preliminary investigations by the police have ruled out homicide, and the case remains under active investigation.

Rising suicide figures

Singapore reported a concerning 476 cases of suicide in 2022, marking the highest number in over two decades.

The Samaritans of Singapore (SOS), a non-profit suicide prevention agency, reported a 25.9% increase from the previous year, with a significant rise among the youth and the elderly.

SOS said that family problems, employment and financial difficulties, as well as romantic relationships, were the most frequently presented problems by people who contacted SOS’ services.

Individuals aged 10 to 29 accounted for more than a quarter of the cases, making suicide the leading cause of death in this age group.

Furthermore, individuals aged 70 to 79 witnessed a staggering 60% increase in suicide deaths compared to the previous year.

The top three issues that elderly people sought help for were medical problems, family difficulties and loneliness, said SOS.

SOS received 57,000 phone calls seeking help last year, a 7% increase from the previous year, while its CareText 24-hours messaging service via WhatsApp received 22,000 text messages, more than double compared to the previous year.

The pressing need for more volunteers and community engagement in suicide prevention has never been more critical.

You think gov really care every one or two ended in such tragic death? Maybe they show some empathies to show to the public how much they “care” for the deceased.

Why? Every day there are almost two hundreds new citizens and new PRs getting their Pink or Blue NRIC. So what if one or two deleted from this tiny island to them? They are thinking of big money, GDP and more vote banks

Another incident…hours ago..
The body of a 63-year-old man was found at the foot of Marina Bay Sands (MBS) hotel.

The pressure in life has gotten to all ages here in SG whilst the MIW just play masak masak with our livelihood. Young or old people once they reached the max capacity, they just end it. Very sad but our G just replace us with NC.

Condolences to the family. 19years is too soon to go. As suicides increase we are becoming a failed community as our Ministers crow of the “successful,” First World State. It is a contradiction that needs addressing

More and more such cases will happened under the dictatorship rule of Singapore PAP government.

So sad…suicides…mental illness…poverty … other llnesses …and more, on the rise in Sin City.
Party due to the “greed knows no bounds” culture of our sgov..??

Did anyone, academia, ‘experts, analysts’ make any studies on the nature of people, circumstances causing, taking their lives – not the one done by SoS – obviously politicians are mostly concerned about proving to SGpns they are trying hard to make econ advancements to improve each ones lives, really?

Fat hopes – the PROOF is in Parliament debates when Tom Dick Harry can decide and see empirically, who are the antagonists against a decent holistic life of a SGpn.
