Man falls to his death at UMMC


KUALA LUMPUR: A man plunged eight storeys to his death at the south tower of the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) in Lembah Pantai here.

His body was found by an auxiliary policeman on the sixth floor of the tower at about 2pm Monday.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Shahrul Othman said a forensics team was deployed to the scene after receiving a report from the auxiliary policeman.

He said the victim’s fingerprint was found on a window on the tower’s 14th floor, where he was believed to have fallen from.

“He sustained injuries to his head and body. 

“We believe the incident happened between Sunday midnight and 5am Monday as his body was bloated and odorous,” ACP Sharul said.

According to him, the victim was divorced less than a year after getting married in March 2015.

“He underwent treatment at Hospital Kuala Lumpur before his wedding.

“He last contacted his ex-wife in March last year. They did not have any children together,” ACP Sharul added.

He said the man was an employee of a private company and was living with his father in Petaling Jaya.

“His parents were also no longer together. He was taking care of his father.

“There are no elements of foul play in his death,” ACP Sharul said.

The case has been classified as sudden death.
