Two hospitalized girls rescued from ledge after climbing out window at KK Hospital

On Monday evening, two hospitalized girls aged 14 and 16 at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital reportedly climbed out of a window and sat on the hospital ledge. Authorities spent over an hour persuading the girls to come down. They were later referred for psychological evaluation under the Mental Health Act.



SINGAPORE: An incident reportedly occurred at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital on the evening of Monday (11 May), where two hospitalized girls reportedly climbed out of a window and perched on the hospital ledge.

Fortunately, the prompt response of both the police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDDF) ensured that the situation was swiftly addressed.

According to local Chinese news outlet Lianhe Zaobao, authorities spent over an hour persuading the girls to come down from the ledge.

The event transpired around 9:20 p.m. at KK Hospital, with Zaobao detailing the deployment of at least two fire engines, a Red Rhino vehicle, and an ambulance at the ground floor waiting area.

Additionally, a team from the SCDF set up air cushions nearby as a precaution against potential falls.

The police also cordoned off the area, heightening the tension of the situation.

An unnamed member of the public informed the press that the two girls, aged 14 and 16, were both patients at the hospital.

They reportedly left their ward, traversed the office area, and made their way out of the window.

The Singapore Police Force informed Zaobao that negotiators from the Crisis Negotiation Unit were on-site to offer support during the incident.

Subsequently, the police stated that the two girls were referred for psychological evaluation under the Mental Health Act.

Thankfully, no injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

KKH released a statement indicating that they are conducting an investigation into the matter and ensuring that all individuals involved are currently safe, receiving necessary treatment, and being provided with appropriate assistance.

Kudos to SCDF. It seems like their workload is increasing daily. The hospital has to explain how two patients ended up trying to commit suicide under their care? Patients can walk in and out with no supervision? Were they under third world supervision?

The underlying factors contributing to the girls actions needs detail study by SG Health authorities and professional academics shd be welcome to offer input – not like 1, private med doctors were reprimanded for covid information, and, 2, the ever unforgettable economists take on labour were also negatively responded to by the criminal Hen who allowed the Armour secrets loosened to the PRC to study.

Looks then No Blame Culture is for the PAP to conceal their lies whereas in pte sector, no such allowances.

Hopefully this is not ANOTHER fabricated story about KKH and Terry gets sued again like that other guy for that other story.

Well, you can now see for yourself. These are what you younger gen of locals are and are doing.
Now you say ,can your countries progress and move forward, without foreigners?😆😆😆
