Singapore fall woman inquest opens

By Arj Singh

An inquest will take place today into the death of a woman who fell from a balcony in Singapore.

Sarah Royle, 31, died after suffering heavy injuries following the accident in June 2010.

She was resuscitated in an ambulance on the way to hospital, but doctors switched off her life support after Ms Royle's sisters, Johanna, 35, and Premsa, 32, flew from Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, to be at her bedside.

Craig Whittaker, Calder Valley MP, told Parliament in July 2010 that Ms Royle had been "watching the England match at the World Cup".

Writing on Facebook, friend Joanne Booth said: "my beautiful friend sarah, i will miss you so much, i will always have a hole in my life without you & always have a friend missing.

"We had sum good times didn't we, here's to more when we next meet. Rest in peace gorgeous angel, your back with your mum now, love you so much x x x x x x x x x x x."

Joanna Heyes posted a message on Facebook saying: "At 4am when Sarah's life support was being switched off a few of Sarah's friends met up and lit candles and shared a couple of memories in the square of H.B.

"Maddy made a lovely board 4 people to write on & Karen brought lots of glitter & shiny stuff :) the square looks lovely. You've left a huge hole in people's hearts Sarah you was a good frend to many. R.I.P Miss sharky Royle. Our love goes out to Jo and Prem XXX."

The inquest will take place at Halifax Coroner's Court.
