SINGAPORE — Two people died following a dispute at Park View Mansions, along Yuan Ching Road, today (Jan 30).

The two - a 37-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman - were found injured in a unit at the condominium and conveyed to the National University Hospital, where they were eventually pronounced dead. Channel NewsAsia understands that at least one of the two were found injured in the bedroom.

Another woman, believed to be the foreign domestic worker employed by the two, was also found injured at the scene. Investigations are ongoing, said the Police.

Channel NewsAsia understands that the deaths have been classified as an "unnatural death" and foul play has not been ruled out.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force told Channel NewsAsia that they were alerted to the incident at 8am on Friday, and despatched three ambulances to 9D Yuan Ching Road. Three people were sent to the National University Hospital, the SCDF said.

A hotline caller, Mr Zhang, told Channel NewsAsia that the pair, whom he believed to be "husband and wife", had a fight in the morning, and their maid tried to intervene.

Mr Ramri Semass, 48, who has worked as a cleaner at the condominium for three years, said he called the police after being alerted by the maid.

"The maid ran down the stairs, and I heard her shouting: 'Help! Sir stabbing ma'am'," he said, adding that the maid was injured in the arm and her back. According to Mr Ramri, the couple have a young child of about kindergarten-going age.

Another cleaner at the estate, Ms Juriah Abu Bakar, said that the maid had an open wound on her arm. There was a lot of blood coming from "back of her head" as well, she told Channel NewsAsia.

"The maid kept saying 'Help my ma'am, don't worry about me, help my ma'am!'" Ms Juriah said. The maid had told her that couple's son was already in school when the incident occurred, she added. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
