A video went viral yesterday (22 July) as it was circulating on social media, showing a migrant worker at a dormitory in Singapore attempting suicide. It was alleged that this occurred at S11 Dormitory @ Punggol.
In the video, a commotion broke out when the migrant worker stood on top of the railing on the fourth floor of the dormitory building. Many other migrant workers whipped out their mobile phones to record the scene.
According to Vaster News, the Chinese migrant worker was forced to pay a S$2,000 return ticket to China after encountering issues with his employer.
However, it was reported that the migrant worker could not afford the flight ticket, thus he stood on the railing, being on the verge to commit suicide.
It was also reported that the Singapore Civil Defence Force was called and they had set up rescue cushions at the scene as a form of precaution.
Fortunately, the migrant worker was successfully persuaded and he stepped off the railing safely.
Stay tuned for more updates.
