YOKOHAMA – The Kawasaki Municipal Government said it will inspect a nursing facility where three elderly people fell to their death from the balconies of their upper-floor rooms in separate incidents in a two-month span last year. The deaths are considered suspicious.
It has also emerged that questions over standards of staff behavior at S Amiyu Kawasaki Saiwai-cho had come to light recently and that in March an 83-year-old resident died while taking a bath, although the city has said deaths of this nature are not uncommon compared with falls from balconies.
