British child plunges to death from 13th floor in SingaporeAugust 7th, 2011 - 1:13 pm ICT by IANS
London, Aug 7 (IANS) A toddler from Britain died after she fell from her parents’ 13th-floor luxury apartment in Singapore, a media report said here.
The body of the three-year-old girl landed next to the apartment block’s busy swimming pool in broad daylight, Daily Mail reported Saturday.
“It was horrific. There were people by the pool and the girl fell in front of us,” said a woman, who witnessed the fall.
The unnamed baby is reported to be the daughter of a professional couple from Britian who are working in Singapore. It is thought she was being looked after by a maid when she fell.
None of the parents were at home when the tragic incident took place. They have since moved out of the flat and are being helped by British embassy staff. The death is being probed by police but foul play has not been suggested, the Mail added.
The 20-storey serviced apartment block, called Fraser Residence Orchard, is in the exclusive suburb of Mount Elizabeth.
Most of the flats, worth about 300,000 pounds each, are rented out to expats on generous salaries.
