JOHOR BARU: A Singaporean youth fell to his death from the ninth floor at an apartment building in Larkin here.
Ng Teck Ann, 19, who was autistic, was found dead at around 8am Tuesday.
His 53-year-old mother, who was resting in her room prior to the incident, made the shocking find after hearing the sliding door leading to the balcony open.
"I went out of my room to see that my son was not in the living room and decided to look out from the balcony," she said.
It is learnt that the mother and son moved to Malaysia about five years ago.
Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Shahurinain Jais confirmed Ng's death, adding that the unemployed victim was staying alone with his mother as his father had passed away.
