A Filipina hiker is undergoing treatment at Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital after falling off a 20-meter cliff in Ma On Shan on Sunday afternoon.

The identity of the 31-year-old victim is not known. The Consulate says no one has
reported the accident to them.

The victim was part of a group of six foreign domestic workers that went hiking together, three Filipinas and three Indonesians. 
All the hikers apparently decided not to talk to anyone about the incident.

Police said the victim lost her balance and fell into the ravine, injuring her hand, legs, face and waist. She remained conscious but could not move.
Local news reports said the group was equipped for climbing and wore helmets.

A spokeswoman for the police told The SUN that the accident was reported by a 43-year-old Filipina companion of the victim.
A hiking group leader who personally knew the six, confirmed to this reporter Monday afternoon that they were all domestic workers. She said they got into trouble when a member nicknamed Bella slipped and fell off the cliff.

The accident happened at 5:44pm on a section called Skyline Path when the group, which began the hike in Saikung, reached Ma On Shan Country Park.
According to the police, the area where the hikers were found was off the official trail.

Two of the victim’s companions reportedly managed to climb down the slope to assist her while the rest called police for help. 
Rescuers tracked the distressed hikers only after midnight and decided to spend the night at the site. They began escorting the uninjured members of the group to safety around 7am on Monday.

The victim was plucked out of the slope and airlifted to Eastern Hospital at 8:20am in a conscious state.

According to reports, the victim is employed by a family living in Saikung. The worker was apparently able to contact her male employer, who reported the accident to the police.

At past 6pm on Monday, officer at the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration-Hong Kong office were still trying to find out the full identity of Bella so they could visit her in the hospital.
