KUALA LUMPUR: Mystery surrounds the death of a Malaysia Airlines stewardess who was found dead at a hotel car park in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, on Friday morning.

Chin Swee Len, 35, was discovered at 9am by guests of the Radisson Hotel who alerted the police. A source from the airline said Chin was believed to have been assaulted and then thrown out of her hotel room window.

"Her fourth floor room was broken into and ransacked," said the source.

Chin failed to attend the briefing at the hotel lobby, which is usually held before the crew leaves for the airport to board their flight.
"A crew member went up to the room to check but could not find her. The room was ransacked and the window was open."

Chin, who is married and has a child, was staying in Taman Oakland, Seremban with her husband. Chin, who was a senior flight attendant, and had been working with the airline since 1997.

Amsterdam police said they were investigating to see whether there was any foul play.

The plane which Chin was supposed to have boarded had to leave without her and landed at Kuala Lumpur International Airport at 1pm yesterday. Netherlands' police had requested assistance from Interpol and the Malaysian police to help in their investigation. A Wisma Putra official confirmed they had been informed.

MAS has flown Chin's husband and immediate family members to Amsterdam to bring back the body. They left late last night.

Its Director of Operations, Captain Azharuddin Osman, said their main concern was to support the family during this difficult time and were cooperating with the authorities.


It happened at the hotel? Radisson Blu the place we stayed in Amsterdam mid July last year.  Its a luxury, quiet & nice hotel located minutes away from Schiphol Airport.

 A warm welcome at the Hotel Reception...
extended to the room as well...

a 'momento' at Radisson Blu, AMS

So folks, lets not judge anything coz its still under investigation and I personally think this shouldn't be debated  and speculated further on FB or twitter. Its very sad that this happened to one of MAS cabin crew members:-(

Our thoughts & prayers go out to the family. May her soul rest in peace.
