KUALA LUMPUR - A look at her social media profile would give the impression that the air stewardess was a jet-setter living an exciting life at 29.

However, her death caused ripples in her online social circle after she allegedly fell from the fourth floor of a condominium block in Bandar Bukit Jalil here at about 6.30pm on Monday.

Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Chong Kok Sin said the flight attendant was found sprawled face down on the ground with injuries to her head and body.

"She was wearing a black shirt and black skirt. Initial investigations revealed that she had fallen through a window on the fourth floor," he said.

ACP Chong said no one witnessed the incident, which might have happened while it was raining heavily.

"Her housemate did not realise what had happened, as she was sleeping at the time of the incident.

"She said the woman was crying alone in her room on Monday morning, but she had no idea what had caused it," he added.

ACP Chong said the stewardess' room was in a mess and her purse was left on her bed.

"We also found a notebook on her bed, containing what seemed to be a suicide note. No foul play was involved in her death," he said, adding the body was sent to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM) for a post-mortem.

Four of her current and former colleagues were at the HUKM mortuary yesterday to identify the body.

A colleague, who declined to be named, said the stewardess had been renting a room in the condominium unit for two years. He said the deceased was not close to her three housemates.

"She had been working in the airline for two years and was originally from Sarawak," he added.

According to the colleague, the woman was a happy person and did not show signs of depression.

The case has been classified as sudden death.
