More windows fell from high-rise homes in the first five months of this year compared to the same time last year.

From January to May, there were 27 cases, according to the Building and Construction Authority's (BCA) records.

This compares to 18 in the first five months of last year, and 43 for the whole of that year.

On this year's numbers, National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan said: "While there were no injuries, we were simply lucky. The next case of fallen window may not be so."
