A 27 year old NTU graduate Ms Liu Zhi Hui jumped to her death from her Choa Chu Kang HDB flat after depression caused by her stressful job forced her over the edge. This was according to her uncle who shared Liu worked for a company before resigning due to the stress and was recuperating at home for almost half a year.
Although her family thought she has depression and encouraged her to visit a doctor, she refused claiming that she felt perfectly healthy. Her uncle lamented that if he knew she had fallen into depression he would have paid more attention to her and such a tragedy could have been stopped.
The Singapore Police classified Liu’s death as a case of unnatural death pending investigation.
