Last Saturday, an Indonesian maid fell 13 storeys and died while trying to put the laundry out to dry in a flat in Pasir Ris.
Neighbours found the 23-year-old on the ground floor with a wooden bamboo clothes pole next to her body.
In an interview with Lianhe Zaobao on Monday, Indonesia’s Ambassador Andri Hadi said six Indonesian maids have fallen from high-rise buildings in just three months this year.
Maids are already provided with training, and existing laws concerning errant employers are being enhanced.
But migrant worker groups are calling for employers to compensate the families of the maids who are injured or die as a result of the job.
