24-year-old maid dangles from parapet at Bukit Panjang block as woman holds on to her
A 24-year-old woman was spotted standing on the ledge of Block 241, Bukit Panjang Ring Road yesterday morning (Dec 6), then dangling precariously from a railing as another female resident held on to her.
Stomp contributor Bugatti alerted Stomp to a video of the incident, which has been circulating online.
The harrowing video shows the woman walking on the ledge, crossing over to another smaller ledge, and then hanging onto the railing for some time before being rescued.
According to a Channel NewsAsia report, the woman is a foreign domestic worker who had accidentally locked herself in one of the rooms. She then climbed out the window in an attempt to get back into the house. The resident holding on to her is believed to be her employer [Edit: The woman has been identified as a tenant living in the home].
In response to media queries by Stomp, the police said they received a call about the incident at 7.58am.
The woman was eventually pulled to safety by police officers and two members of the public.
