SINGAPORE - A 25-year-old Vietnamese woman who died after falling from West Coast Highway on Tuesday is believed to have jumped off the expressway, Lianhe Wanbao reported.
The woman is said to have been riding on a motorcycle with a Singaporean man before she got off and jumped. The Chinese daily reported that Ho Chieu fell from a six-storey height and landed on another motorcyclist.
Witnesses told the paper that she appeared to be breathing but succumbed to her injuries soon after.
The motorcycle she hit skidded seven or eight metres before coming to a stop. The 24-year-old rider sustained minor injuries and did not go to the hospital.
Lianhe Wanbao reported that the woman's companion tried but could not stop the woman in time, and found her dead by the time he got back to the scene of the accident. He then held her body and attempted to revive her.
The middle-aged man is believed to have lived with her in a flat at Clementi.
He was unwilling to talk when approached by reporters. According to Lianhe Wanbao, he believes she was troubled by unclean spirits.
The police have classified the case as unnatural death.
