Maid found dead at foot of Sembawang flat

A 24-year-old maid was found motionless at the foot of Blk 421 Canberra Road on Monday morning.

According to her employer, the Myanmar maid fell to her death from the 13th storey flat in Sembawang when she tried to run away, but fell out of the kitchen window instead, reported The Straits Times (ST).

Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that they received a call at 6:20am and dispatched one ambulance to the scene. They then found a female, with multiple injuries, lying on the ground floor.

Paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene and the police are investigating it as an unnatural death.

Goh, the maid’s employer, said that she woke up around 6am to find her maid missing and suspected that she had run away, added ST.

The employer said she wanted the maid’s agency to take back the girl, who had been working for the family for two months, as the latter had been uncooperative, the paper reported.

This incident comes after an Indonesian maid was found dead at the foot of a flat in Serangoon on Thursday and also marks the tenth case reported this year of a maid falling from a high-rise flat.
