herself drinking the bleach
A Filipina domestic helper who has apparently overstayed her visa in Hong Kong reportedly tried to kill herself by gulping down a gallon of bleach on Oct. 10, and even recorded her act on video.

Reports from her friends said Ann A. was taken to a hospital in the New Territories shortly after her suicide bid at about 1pm, but as of this writing, no one could say for sure where she was.

About four hours after she sent the video of her downing the bleach to a friend, this message appeared on Ann's Facebook account: OK lang ako, wag kayo mag-alala,” the post read.

Later, Ann said in her native Ilonggo dialect that she was so depressed that she seemed to have lost her mind.
Thank you gid sa kabalaka ninyo. May second life pa ako,” (Thanks for all your concern. I got a new lease on life”), she added.

Ann, a mother of three young girls and a native of Cabatuan, Iloilo, videoed herself gulping down the bleach, her mouth frothing from the liquid that flowed down her chin.

She sent the video to a neighbor friend, who then shared it in a group chat, until it reached the RMN radio station in Iloilo, which posted a blurred copy on its Facebook page. .

A caption story that accompanied the posted video said Ann had a spat with her husband last Sunday, making her decide to end her life.

One of her fellow Ilonggos who contacted the assistance to nationals section of the Consulate reported that Ann’s last contract ended in June this year.

She appears not to have submitted a new contract, suggesting she has been staying in Hong Kong illegally since.
Ann is reportedly staying at a boarding house in Kamtin, Yuen Long.
