A 40-year-old man and her one-year-old girl fell to their deaths along Yishun Street 22 at about 11am. Eye-witnesses concluded that both the father and daughter had fallen at the same time as there was only one audible thud. The duo were believed to have jumped off a flowerpot rack on the 12th storey.
According to Shin Min Daily News, the man had breakfast earlier with his pregnant wife, before telling her that he would take their daughter shopping. The man appeared to be well-off financially - he sported a BMW 1300GT motorcycle, and lived in an executive maisonette just a few meters away from the location of their death.
