SUBANG JAYA: A woman jumped to her death from the first floor of the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Centre here, this morning.
The woman, in her 30s, is said to have climbed over the first floor railing and “dived” off, landing at the foot of an escalator on the Lower Ground 2 level – meaning that she fell three storeys in the 11.20am incident.
According to the shopping mall’s management, the woman survived the fall but suffered serious injuries and was rushed to the Sunway Medical Centre, where she was pronounced dead shortly after arrival.
A video clip of the moments following the woman’s apparent suicide attempt – which has gone viral on social media – shows the woman on an ambulance stretcher, being tended to by Emergency Rescue Service (EMRS) personnel. Puddles of the woman’s blood can be seen near the escalator, as several shoppers look on in shock.
One witness, who declined to be identified, said the woman had been at the mall with a female friend, who was later seen weeping next to the prostrate woman.
