He also said that criminal elements were ruled out after the victim’s house on the third floor was inspected.
“The 11-month-old baby was believed to be playing with her sister, two brothers and three cousins, aged from two to 14 years, on a bed by the window before she fell (to her death) at around 2pm,” he said in a statement last night.

He also added that there was a high chance that the victim fell while playing. The windows were found to have no iron grills and the bed was placed in the centre of the window with no barriers. The baby girl was confirmed dead after being brought to Selayang Hospital’s Emergency Unit by a medical officer.
Such a tragic incident and painful death for the poor innocent baby. The apartment unit itself has terrible safety hazards. If you have young children and babies living in an apartment. please have iron grills installed. This is the least you could do. Make sure that they don’t play near any windows or doors. Rest in peace and deepest condolences to the baby girl.
