As reported by The Star, a 21-year-old University Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) student passed away after falling from the seventh floor of the University campus hostel at about 2.50pm on April 19.
The first-year UniMAP engineering student, Goh Xin Xi from Sungai Ara, Bayan Lepas in Penang, slipped and fell when he tried to get into his hostel through a window after forgetting to bring his keys out.
Goh’s body had been sent to the Tuanku Fauziah Hospital for a post-mortem, and police are investigating the case, shared by UniMAP’s vice-chancellor Datuk Zul Azhar Zahid Jamal.
“The family of the victim has been informed and his father is on his way from Penang.
“The university is saddened by the tragedy, and will reach out to his family to lend their support in any way it can,” he said.
