HONG KONG – Authorities are investigating the cause of the death of an unidentified Filipina girl found at the foot of a residential building in Kwun Tong on Tuesday morning.
According to police reports, security guards at 47 Ka Lok Street discovered the unconscious female lying on the ground around 7 a.m. local time. She was rushed to the United Christian Hospital in a critical state but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
After a preliminary investigation, officers believed that the girl had fallen from the rooftop of the site. No suicide note was seized at the scene, and the cause of death of the girl is yet to be confirmed after autopsy. From a preliminary verbal investigation, the young Pinay girl was not happy due to academic problems.
If you believe you, or someone you know, is at immediate risk, call 999. An emergency unit will be deployed immediately.
