Young Singapore girl attempts suicide, rushed to hospital

A young Singapore girl attempts suicide, and was rushed to hospital. We hope she survives, this is really so sad...

We just came across a shocking news. A young Singapore girl attempted suicide yesterday evening (Mar 4) in the Bugis area. She seemed to be around 19-20 years old.

Facebook user Vicki Pang posted about it, "A very young girl age round 20 only... jump from the building. Hope she’s be fine. Sent to hospital still with heartbeat."

"Police managed to contact the family. Her mom cry to rush to hospital to see her only daughter..."

We really hope and pray that the girl survives...

At this point of time, we don't know what drove this young girl to attempt suicide.
