There has been yet another lift accident in a ward under the care of AMK Town Council. This time, the life-endangering incident involve a 10-year old girl who required 5 stitches after the lift ceiling fell and landed on her foot.
The faulty lift is located at Block 325A on Sengkang East Way which is under PAP MP Lam Pin Min. Lam however has the luxury of not needing to manage the ward as its maintenance has been farmed out to AMK Town Council under Lee Hsien Loong.
The girl’s father, Mr Chung was reported in the State-media to have said:
“I am disappointed and surprised that such a thing could happen. It’s the June holidays now. What if a kid was taking the lift alone when the ceiling fell? I don’t know what will happen.”
