SINGAPORE - Ang Mo Kio Town Council (AMKTC) has blocked the access point to the roof of a walkway at Jalan Kayu where two young girls were filmed running.

A video of the two girls running and playing on the roof of the walkway was posted on All Singapore Stuff on Tuesday (April 4).

Reaction to the video was divided on the Internet. Some said the girls were just having some harmless fun, while others thought it was dangerous behaviour.

Said Facebook user Shade Sharil: "What's the difference between that height & the height of the playground in the older eras? Exactly. Leave the kids alone."

Kim Chua thought they could have fallen through the roof: "I am more worried if the roof itself able to withstand the running and stomping on it."

However, the stunt will likely not be repeated.

"Upon receiving feedback, AMKTC did an immediate site inspection. We have identified the possible access point and will block the access to prevent a recurrence," a spokesman from the town council said.
