Mystery surrounds naked 18-year-old girl’s plunge from 7-storey flat (File photo of a block of flats in Bukit Panjang.)

SINGAPORE : An 18-year-old girl was found naked, lying face-down, at the foot of an HDB block in Bukit Panjang on Tuesday.

The girl reportedly suffered serious injuries after falling from her seventh-floor flat at Block 431.

A resident draped a cloth over her to protect her modesty before an ambulance arrived to take her to Khoo Teck Puat hospital, where she is warded in the intensive care unit.

According to a resident from a nearby block, he heard a loud thud at around 10.45am. He didn’t immediately rush to see what had happened as he was trying to sleep. When he looked out his window a few minutes later, he saw the girl on the ground and police at the void deck.

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

It is understood that her 21-year-old brother was in the flat when the incident happened but was still sleeping. He said his sister, who studies in a private school, did not appear to have any problems.

The girl’s father who was at work at that time, told the media he doesn’t know how and why this happened.

Police are investigating the case.
