Three Year Old Boy Falls From Sixth Floor, Survives

A three-year-old boy has survived a fall from a sixth floor flat.

The boy tumbled out of the kitchen window when his grandmother went downstairs to retrieve a pair of pants that had fallen downstairs, reported Chinese daily Shin Min Daily News on Wednesday.

He landed in the carpark at Block 168 on Stirling Road.

Police said they received a call about the incident at 6pm on Tuesday.

A neighbour told Shin Min that she saw the boy hit a ledge before landing on the ground.

She immediately called for an ambulance. His back was bruised but he had no other obvious injuries, she said.

The boy was conscious, but he was short of breath as he was conveyed to National University Hospital, the Singapore Civil Defence Force said.

The family declined to be interviewed when approached by a reporter at the hospital, Shin Min said.

Police investigations are ongoing.
