Bloody Facebook post sparks talk of Leung daughter suicide

A Facebook post purporting to show the second daughter of Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying with cuts on the wrist and a bloody hand sparked speculation she may have committed suicide.

In it, Leung Chai-yan writes “Will I bleed to death?” above a photo showing a wrist with two cuts, with the rest of the forearm submerged in what looks like bath water.

About an hour later, another post shows a bloodied right hand below an “I love blood” comment.

Leung Chun-ying’s office said it had no comment when asked by the media if his daughter has depression and whether his ongoing leave might have something to do with the problem.

In recent months, the younger Leung was severely criticized by netizens for saying a knife attack on former Ming Pao chief editor Kevin Lau was unrelated to freedom of the press.
