“The victim was said to have climbed out of the classroom to the balcony area at the back of the room by mounting on a plastic chair before he slipped and plunged three metres to the ground,” he told reporters at the Tanah Merah police headquarters.

During the incident, Zainuddin said that the teacher and two friends were at the balcony while another teacher was in the classroom.
