There have been two reported incidents over the past year of children falling to their deaths from homes that did not have window grilles.
In January this year, a three-year-old girl fell out of a fourth-storey flat in Serangoon North Avenue 4. She died 24 days later of pneumonia following severe traumatic brain injury.
Before that, in October last year, a four-year-old boy fell nine storeys to his death from the master bedroom of his flat in Yishun Ring Road.
