A 44-year-old Filipina domestic helper who was reportedly tormented by financial and love problems hanged herself in her bedroom in Yuen Long at about 9:15 pm yesterday, Apr 21.

A police spokesman said the woman was found by her 35-year-old employer hanging from the ceiling with a towel around her neck.

The employer immediately brought the helper down and removed the towel, then called the police. When paramedics arrived at the employer’s unit in Tong Fong Tsuen village, they found the victim already dead, the spokesman said.
