Following the fall from the roof, Dogan fell into 50 metres deep well below, according to a report by Daily Star.
The tragic incident was recorded on camera. According to the video, Dogan is seen sitting on the edge of the roof before the sheet is heard breaking. Following the same, the Dogan disappears from view in front of her stunned minor cousin.
Helen, however, immediately rushed to inform her family of the incident following which the emergency services were called to the scene. Unfortunately, paramedics could only confirm the 23-year-old womanâ€™s death.
Dogan’s Family To Sue Roofing Contractor
As the death was a result of the collapse of the roofing sheet, Dogan’s family is set to sue the roofing contractor who installed the sheets on the roof in the first place, according to a report by Sabah. Dorgan’s uncle Nebi Dogan said, “There is a big flaw in the contractor there. As soon as the girl puts her foot, it breaks and (she) falls to the ground from the 9th floor.”
Dogan’s body is currently awaiting an autopsy following which it will be handed over to her family for burial. Meanwhile, the investigation is ongoing.
