A father spoke of his grief last night after his son fell four storeys to his death from a carpark.

Student Sean Lin En Wei, 17, is believed to have been tinkering with his bicycle at Block 625A, Senja Road in Bukit Panjang before Friday night's tragedy.

His father Lin Leong Chong, 50, told The Straits Times it had been an "accident", despite there being metre-high railings around the multi-storey carpark near his home.

By the time he heard about it, his son had already died in the hospital. "It was so sudden. We can't accept it," said Mr Lin.
