Remains of suspected heat stroke victim flown home

19 August 2019

A 63-year old domestic worker who died of suspected heatstroke made her final voyage back to the Philippines earlier today.

The body of Milagrosa M. Aligaen, who had worked in Hong Kong for 29 years, was flown home to Iloilo aboard a Cebu Pacific flight.

Aligaen was declared dead on arrival at Eastern Hospital in Chai Wan

One of her two adult sons fetched her casket at Iloilo airport and accompanied it to their hometown of Maasin, Iloilo about 9km away.

Aligaen, who had a heart ailment, was found dead on the morning of Aug 12 in her employer’s flat in Shaukeiwan, a likely victim of heat stroke.
Her body was discovered by her 62-year-old employer on the lower deck of a bunk bed that they shared.

She was rushed to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital but was declared dead on arrival. The exact cause of her dead is still being investigated.
Just a day before she died, she had reportedly told her sister-in-law, Elsa Cordero, that she could not sleep and had difficulty breathing because it was hot and the employer did not want to turn the air conditioner on.

Cordero, who also works in Hong Kong, said the deceased had been taking maintenance pills for her heart ailment.
Aligaen had been working as a domestic helper in Hong Kong since 1990. She was hired seven years ago to take care of her employer’s father, who is in a home for the elderly, Cordero said.  – Vir B. Lumicao
