A 13-year-old girl fell to her death from the sixth floor of a car park at Pasir Ris, Singapore on Wednesday, 8 January

According to Shin Min Daily News, the teen was allegedly cycling around the sixth floor of the parking lot with her friends when she lost control of her bicycle while riding down a ramp.

This caused her to hit a metre-high safety railing, which led to her getting flung all the way down.

A domestic helper, who had just finished showering, was the first to notice when she heard a sound from outside

In a report by The New Paper, the 39-year-old domestic helper, who only wanted to be known as Sherry, said she looked out and saw the girl at the foot of the multi-storey car park.

She then proceeded to call the Singapore Civil Defence Force and the police.

Speaking to Mothership, the Singapore police said that they were alerted at around 4:04pm about a teen lying motionless at the foot of the block.

The 13-year-old was then pronounced dead at the scene by a Singapore Civil Defence Force paramedic.

A photo posted on Facebook by a resident of the area showed a police tent set up at the accident scene.
