This unfortunate incident brings to mind past tragedies involving young individuals who have lost their lives in similar accidents. Earlier this year, a 12-year-old girl tragically fell to her death in Dubai while her mother was at work, and her father was away in India. In another incident last year, a 16-year-old boy lost his life while skateboarding on the top floor of a seven-story car park in the Al Taawun area. Such events serve as stark reminders of the importance of safety awareness and vigilance, especially in environments where young people congregate.
