19-Year-Old Girl Sits On Staircase Railings Of Sengkang HDB On 7 Apr Evening
Sengkang is usually a quiet estate that’s away from the buzz of town.
On Wednesday (7 Apr), however, the tranquility of the estate was broken by a commotion that took place at a Sengkang HDB block.
A 19-year-old girl was reportedly seen sitting on top of the staircase railings between the 26th and 27th floor.
She was later arrested under the Mental Health Act.

A 14-second clip shared by Shin Min Daily News shows a human silhouette sitting at the staircase railings between the 26th and 27th floor of an HDB block.
It appears the girl was sitting on the railings with her hands on the ceiling as support.
The incident apparently took place at Block 443C along Fernvale Road at around 6.45pm.
According to the Chinese news outlet, the girl had, at one point, dangled one of her legs over the railing.
One resident interviewed by Shin Min Daily said it was a nerve-wracking sight and that she felt weak just looking at the incident unfolding.
An inflatable air pack was also positioned at the foot of the HDB block, directly below the stairwell.
Girl arrested by police under Mental Health Act
According to STOMP, the girl was eventually conveyed to Sengkang General Hospital after 3 long hours.
Police officers later arrested the 19-year-old under the Mental Health (Care and Treatment) Act.
