This definitely just sent a shock through our systems. We got word that a Sunway University student apparently jumped to her death on campus a few hours ago 🙁
According to various social media updates, the student is believed to have fallen from the new 12-storey Sunway University building located in Bandar Sunway.
Witnesses have flocked to Twitter and Facebook to confirm that the incident happened and one even claimed to have seen “an object falling” from a few floors above the 3rd floor.
As at time of writing, Sunway University has yet to release an official statement regarding the news. It is not confirmed as of yet that it was indeed an act of suicide, so let’s not jump into conclusions.
