A woman who fell from a HDB flat at Block 469A in Sembawang on Wednesday morning survived.

A STOMP reader who witnessed the incident sent in pictures that showed the woman after her fall. She said the woman landed on a parapet above a rubbish dump.

The reader, Yarwana, added that she heard a woman's voice shouting: "Don't jump!". She then went downstairs to check, and saw the woman lying prone on the parapet. The injured woman was bleeding from her hands, legs and head.

Partially quoted from Asiaone, "Woman survives fall from HDB block".

A NINE-year-old boy fell from his family's fifth-storey flat in Jurong West on Wednesday and survived.

Yao Yi Min, a Primary 4 pupil at Westgrove Primary School, is believed to have been climbing out of the living room window into his bedroom window after he was accidentally locked out of the bedroom. But he lost his footing and plunged five floors.

He is in intensive care at the National University Hospital, with a cast on his neck, and injuries to his jaw, ribs and leg.

His father said that his condition is stable and he is recovering, but he does not know when he will be discharged.

The family's neighbour, Ms Jayanthi Sathish, 31, who saw him after he fell, said: 'He was hurt and bleeding on one side of his face, and looked like he was in pain.'

Police said they received a call at about 4pm informing them of the incident. They said the boy was conscious when he was taken to the hospital.

From Straits Times, "Boy, 9, survives fall from fifth-storey flat".
