A Filipina domestic worker who fell 20 meters off a cliff on Ma on Shan on Mar 31 has had a lucky escape, with just an injury in her left hand waiting to heal, according to officers of the Consulate who visited her in hospital on Apr 5.

The helper, who friends identified as Bella or Jobelle, asked not to be interviewed by journalists for fear of being bashed on social media, said Virsie Tamayao of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.

Tamayao said the fall victim was lucky to be wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, thus saving her from what could have been serious or even fatal injuries.
The welfare officer said it was fortunate, too, that Bella’s employers were supportive of the helper. 

One of Bella’s hiking buddies said those who were with her during the climb, who included two other Filipina and three Indonesian migrant workers, also preferred not to talk about the incident.
The six were hiking at 5:44pm on Ma On Shan’s Skyline Path on Mar 31 when Bella reportedly lost her footing on a very narrow trail and fell off the cliff.

Rescuers could not extricate her from the steep slope due to bad weather and had to wait until the next morning to airlift her to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Chai Wan. 
Her hiking buddies who spent the night on the slope with her were guided down the trail by rescuers from the Fire Services to waiting ambulances at the entrance to Ma On Shan Country Park. 

Just six days after Bella’s mishap, a 26-year-old Filipina resident plunged to her death from a slope beside a waterfall in Tai Mo Shan Country Park while apparently taking a selfie.
The victim, whose identity was not disclosed by the police, was said to be a Lantau resident who had a daughter. She was reportedly hiking on Apr 5 with her younger sister and four friends when the accident happened.
