STOP SHAMING TEEN WHO DIED TRYING TO RETRIEVE HIS PHONE, YOU WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME!

Dear All Singapore,

In response to your article:
https://www.allsingaporestuff.com/article/17-yo-teen-died-orchard-central-was-trying-retrieve-phone

To those who are not there to understand and witness the cement looking beam platform or ledge…pls do not make insensitive comments or remarks … I have just came back from Orchard Central and had took a very detail look and understanding of the low glass barrier and cement like beam platform … all i can say is 9 or even 10 out of 10 guys will definitely climb over to retrieve their fallen stuffs …

I know I would even I’m already 52 not to mention what a 17 yrs old will do … to me the only stupidity in tis unfortunate case is the construction of the cement looking platform with the low glass barrier with no warning sign at all??? …

“Why build something that looked solid when its “Empty?” … Be there before airing your insensitve thoughts … my heart sank and filled with anger when I happened to be there to witness & understand the thinly empty platform …

Yes, I have teared watching it in anger … the worst feeling was … there isn’t any guard, cordon or danger signage along the opposite parallel side of the walk bridge …

I have to drag along my tired daughter all the way to seek advice fm the police post on my concern and was advised to speak to building management. When approached the front desk, i was advised to call the office on Monday!!!!

I Insisted to speak personally to the security officer in charge and managed to convince him to at least put a warning signage at the opposite walk bridge … I sincerely hoped he wil do what was promised to me before I left with a heavy heart …

RIP Jonathan whom I or we never met … my condolences to your family … a young beautiful life has been taken away so unfortunately & unnecessary …

So do keep your smart talk to yourself if you have nothing nice to say and if you need to speak … spend a thought to the deceased and family … a simply RIP will do and may GOD Bless all our Kids to be safe around us and keep tis grievous lesson in mind so tat a young life wil not go to waste just like that…

I have spoken my peace and hopefully the building management will do something safe abt it … else, i dont think i can walk pass Orchard Central with any good feelings abt it.
