A 34-year-old Filipina domestic worker is reported to be in coma early this morning (Aug 7)  at Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Chai Wan, hours after she collapsed on Shek O Beach while picnicking with friends.

The woman’s friends suspect the victim, identified as Mae Catin Paborada, suffered a heatstroke on yet another sweltering day in Hong Kong. However, police recorded it as a “drunk person” case.

Paborada reportedly collapsed on the beach at 3:55pm on Sunday while having fun with a group of friends.

A spokesperson for the Police Public Relations Bureau told The SUN that the woman was conscious while being taken to the hospital. He declined to give her name.

However, friends who visited Paborada at the hospital last night said she was unconscious at the ICU, and was attached to a life support system. Doctors reportedly told them that the patient was in coma.

One of her friends who resides on the same block in Sai Wan Ho as the victim said in a post on Facebook that Paborada had been drinking red wine with a group of Filipinas at a barbecue party.

The group reportedly went swimming, but as soon as Paborada got out of the water, she collapsed on the beach.

One of her friends sent out an appeal for prayers for Paborada, who is reportedly from Tapaz, Capiz.
