Orchard Central Video of teen fall leaked

A leaked security camera footage of the moments before 17-year-old Jonathan Chow fell to his death from the 4th floor of Orchard Central last Friday. The video shows him and her friend, Ruth (the girl in the video), standing together in a linkway between Orchard Central and Orchard Gateway before Jonathan jumped. According to TodayOnline, teenagers were window shopping for clothes (at the mall) and when they went to the bridge, Jonathan Chow came up with the idea of doing a stunt : "Help me take a Snapchat video and I’ll jump.” were the last words of him.

Jonathan leapt before she could say no :
“We both thought the parapet was made of concrete, but when he jumped, he fell straight through,” said Ruth, who is currently assisting the police with investigations. “I knew it was dangerous, but before I could stop him, he already jumped over. I swear I wanted to jump over too but I knew it was too late.”

Earlier reports said that he went on the paraphet to retrieve his phone but the video (you can watch it here in The Star Online article) seems to confirm her story. He jumps over the barrier while the girl was filming in the security camera footage.
