Naked teen falls 7 floors: Dad makes offerings where she fell

Teen found naked at foot of block.

For 20 minutes, the couple silently prayed and made offerings at the foot of the block yesterday evening.

Not a word was uttered between them.

The man handed the woman some joss sticks that he had lit and they planted them at the edge of the grass verge.

They knelt at the spot where a badly injured girl was found earlier in the day after falling from a height of seven storeys at Block 431, Bukit Panjang Ring Road.

When The New Paper asked the man if he was aware of the incident, he nodded slowly before saying: "She's my daughter."

The man, who declined to be named, kept his hands clasped in prayer and focused his gaze on the spot where his daughter was discovered.

"I was at work when all this happened," he said softly.

"I still don't know how or why this could have happened to her.

"Hopefully she gets well soon. There's so much on my mind but I can't talk right now."

The 18-year-old girl, who was naked, was found lying face-down, eyewitnesses told TNP.

A resident from nearby Block 429 heard a loud thud around 10.45am.

Mr Muhammad Asri, 23, said he did not peer out of his bedroom window as he was then trying to sleep.

Unable to fall asleep minutes later, he looked out and saw the girl on the ground. He also noticed policemen at the void deck of Block 431.

An ambulance arrived soon after and took the girl to hospital.

The police received a call for assistance at 10.52am.
