AN eight-year-old girl plunged to her death after clambering over the wall of her 26th-floor balcony, a coroner said yesterday. So Tsz-ching and her brother Chun-ho, 11, were playing together in the corridor of their building just before lunchtime on July 21 last year. When Chun-ho went to have lunch, the girl was left to her own devices. Resident Tang Tung-yuen, 45, said he was passing the building on his way back from lunch when he heard a loud bang and saw a girl's body on the ground. About half an hour later, Chun-ho was told someone had fallen and he ran to tell his mother, Wong Wai-ling. A police officer intercepted the mother and son, asking them to identify the girl. Chun-ho said his sister often climbed on the orange bars running the length of the balcony. 'I told her not to climb up or I would tell my mother,' he said. The doctor who performed the postmortem examination said Tsz-ching's death had been caused by multiple injuries. The child's father expressed concern that children sometimes climbed over the bars to pick flowers from troughs outside the balconies. But Coroner Warner Banks said he found 'nothing suspicious in the evidence' and no sign of safety violations on the part of the building's managers. He handed down a verdict of death by accident.
