The fridge landed in the parking lot, narrowly missing some motorcycles.
condominium resident Azmi Aziz, 40, said he thought somebody had committed suicide when he heard a loud crash.
“I thought someone had fallen from one of the balconies,” said Azmi.

“Thankfully, no one was hurt,” said Azmi.
Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Roslan Khalid said initial investigations showed that a 20-year-old mentally unstable man had thrown the fridge from the balcony.
“The suspect is not under remand. Instead, he will undergo mental evaluation in a hospital over the next four days,” he said.
> Actress Tania Hudson is ready to accept criticism for her latest role in the film Abang Long Fadil 2, Utusan Malaysia reported.
The Malay-English beauty said she was both excited and nervous as this was her first time in a lead role. She plays Yana, a TV reporter on an investigative assignment.
“I am aware that my acting will be scrutinised and criticised by people. As long as I am still in this industry, I am willing to accept criticism and learn from it. I have given my best for the role,” she said.
Hudson underwent surgery in 2009 to cure a condition known as arteriovenous malformation, which caused her blood vessels to grow abnormally and in a tangle.
Abang Long Fadil 2 will hit the theatres on Aug 24.
