Parents of girl stuck in railings grateful to foreign workers who saved her life
The mother of the child who had to be rescued by foreign workers after getting her head trapped in-between railings said the incident happened while she was taking her other child to kindergarten.
Housewife Madam Noreen Saniri, 27, a mother of three, told The New Paper (TNP) on Friday (April 24) she had left her flat at Blk 371, Jurong East Street 32 yesterday at 1pm to send her five-year-old daughter to school.
She said her younger girl, aged three, was sleeping when they left.
But the toddler woke up and residents were later horrified to find the girl, wearing only her diapers, dangling at the window with her body outside while her head was stuck in the railings.
A video clip showing one worker climbing to the second storey unit to support her has gone viral.
Another worker also came to help. Madam Norween said: "I didn't think so many things could happen in five to 10 minutes."
Her husband, Mr Muhammad Fazlee Abdul Aziz, 28, told TNP he was so grateful to the men who helped his daughter.
He said: "I am very grateful the workers would actually risk their own lives to climb up to save my daughter's life."
