Pinay DH falls to death in Yuen Long

16 March 2017

The Facebook profile photo of the victim appears to suggest her anguish
A Filipina domestic worker fell to her death yesterday,  Mar 15,  from a platform atop a busy shopping centre in Yuen Long, according to information gathered by The SUN.
A source said the victim, who fell five floors to her death from a new footbridge connecting Yoho Midtown to the Grand Yoho mall, was having problems relating to her family.
Others said she also had financial problems.
It appears to be the first such case this year involving a Filipina.
Police confirmed there was such an incident in Yuen Long, but did not disclose the victim's name and nationality. They only said she was not a Hong Kong citizen and not Chinese.
The Police Public Relations Bureau told The SUN that the woman, aged 35, was found lying unconscious on the pavement on Yuen Long Street outside the mall at around 12:25 pm on Wednesday.
They have classified the case as "a person falling from height".
An ambulance reportedly rushed the victim unconscious to Pok Oi Hospital in Yuen Long where she was pronounced dead.
The PPRB said there was nothing suspicious in the woman’s death and no suicide note was found.
But  Filipinas living in the same residential block told The SUN that the victim had been depressed by family problems back home.
Another suggested her problem had something to do with money. A few days before she died, she reportedly texted a friend asking to borrow $100 because she was broke.-- VBL/MP
