Salon owner’s kin apologise to model’s family

The model, who was to get married at the end of the year, was rushed to hospital after her heart rate slowed following an anaesthetic injection on her arm at about 2.30pm. She died at 5pm at the hospital.

Siew’s brother told the daily the relatives of the woman and her daughter who owned the beauty salon felt that it was only proper that they came to pay their last respects.

He thanked the public for their concern.

Siew, said to have led a healthy and fit lifestyle, came first in an Asian modelling competition in 2014.
