MALAYSIA: Teenager Died After Falling Chair Struck Him In The Head

If you are living or have lived in high-rise flats, you’d often see rubbish or things getting thrown from the floors above. While it is dangerous and uncivilized to do so, there are still many who do it until this day!

On Monday (January 15) night, a 15-year-old boy died after he was hit by a chair that fell from the upper floors of a block of flats.

The victim was on the ground floor of the Sri Pantai flats when he was struck by the falling object at around 8.15 pm.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Ruslan Khalid confirmed the incident. He added that the case is currently being investigated under Section 304(a) of the Penal Code for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

It is understood that the victim died on the spot after sustaining a heavy blow to the head.

According to Sinar Harian, one of the flat residents, Halim Mohd Kassim, 47, was in the vicinity when he heard a loud thud.

“I thought it was nothing out of the ordinary as things are regularly thrown off the building. But then I heard screams and people started running towards the source of the sound.

“I saw the victim lifelessly laying there with an open wound to the head.”

Although incidences like this rarely happen, it is still possible! So please stop throwing your rubbish or anything for that matter down the flats! Think of those people who are walking on the ground floor! I’m sure you don’t want to be covered in rubbish thrown by others, so you have to stop it first!

What are your thoughts on this?
