The man was at the foot of the block when he was struck on the head by a beer bottle inside a plastic bag, which also contained some tissue paper and a receipt.

Last year, Andrew Gosling, 47, an Australian man was involved in a condominium fatal killer litter case.

Gosling had allegedly thrown a glass wine bottle from a lift landing on the seventh storey of the Spottiswoode 18 condominium towards a table near the barbecue area on the fifth storey at around 8.30 pm on Aug 18.

The bottle hit delivery driver Nasiari Sunee’s head, causing a skull fracture that led to his death.

The 73-year-old driver was at a housewarming party of a relative when the bottle hit him just as he was about to eat.

The eldest of four children, service manager Nas Suriati Nasiari, told The Straits Times in an interview that relatives heard two thuds before her father collapsed on the ground with a head wound. They then spotted an intact glass bottle nearby.
