A 31-year-old Filipina domestic worker fell from a building in Cheung Sha Wan just after 1pm on Monday, Jul 15, in an apparent suicide. She was declared dead at the scene.

The victim whose initials were VRM, was single and a native of Tibiao, Antique, a neighbor told The SUN. She was the family’s breadwinner and was the only girl among a brood of boys.
Newspaper reports said she had killed herself over a “relationship problem” but this could not be confirmed by the neighbor.

A police spokeswoman said no suicide note was found from the victim, and her death had been classified as “falling from a height.” A post mortem will be conducted.
The spokeswoman further said the victim had fallen from a building on 46 Nassau Street in Mei Foo Sun Chuen estate, Cheung Sha Wan. A 31-year-old construction worker surnamed Lee had called police after hearing a loud sound, then saw her body lying on the pavement.

“Initial investigations found no suspicious circumstances,” said the spokeswoman.

The neighbor said the victim had worked for just one employer for the past four years. Her aunt reportedly worked with her for the same employer. – with a report from Merly T. Bunda
