KUALA LUMPUR: City Hall will be upgrading safety features at the car park area in Jalan Semantan in Damansara Heights where a bank executive died when her car plunged 25m on Monday morning. 

The local authority said in a statement that it would be building fences and putting up warnings signs to warn people of the danger.  

It added that similar fences and warning signs would be put in other areas that might be of risk to city folk.  

In the incident, Norhailini Yahya, 45, acting vice-president of CIMB Investment Bank Bhd’s legal department, died in a freak accident when her parked Kia Rio went off the road at a spot with a 25m drop. 

Fire and Rescue Department personnel spent about 20 minutes trying to cut through the badly-wrecked vehicle to rescue the victim but by the time they got to her, she was already dead.
