BCA SAYS LIGHT PANEL IN LIFT NOT SECURED, CAUSING IT TO FALL

BCA has responded in the wake of the lift ceiling falling on a 10 year old girl in Sengkang, injuring her in the process. Investigations done has shown that the plastic board might not have been secured properly. BCA has also issued a notice to suspend the operation of the lift.

The Ang Mo Kio Town Council has also indicated that they will reimburse all the medical fees of the 10 year old girl, which came to about $200. The lift contractor maintaining the LG elevators for the block where the incident took place is Sigma Elevator. Sigma Elevator has been in the news lately for being the company that has been banned from taking part in tenders for lift maintenance works since October 2015, because its newer lifts broke down more often than usual.
