A three-year-old British girl has died after falling from a high-rise apartment block in Singapore.

The girl, who has not been named, was reported to have been in a 13th-floor apartment in Fraser Residence Orchard in the centre of Singapore, and somehow managed to climb over the balcony.

Local newspaper Lianhe Wanbao reported that both parents were out, but the baby girl was being looked after by a maid.

Singapore Police are not treating the death as suspicious.

Both parents are reported to be British professionals living in Singapore. They had not returned home from work when the incident happened shortly after 6pm on Monday, when the young girl's body was found next to the apartment's swimming pool. Read More
