THE deaths of two security guards in a fire at Marina Bay Suites could have been prevented and should be a wake-up call for the private security industry to develop sound safety guidelines, said a state coroner.
State Coroner Marvin Bay ruled the deaths as a “misadventure” with no foul play and made several recommendations to improve safety.
Sim Lai Huat, 55, and Sooria Kala Kaneseon, 33, were killed by extensive severe burns after taking the lift up to a 65th-floor penthouse in the condominium to investigate a fire alarm on Jan 13. — The Straits Times / Asia New Network
