Netizens scorch women who risked their lives for a fruit

Two women are facing a social media backlash after they were shown picking fruit from a longan tree on a Mong Kok flyover, endangering public safety.

Netizens tore into the women after a Facebook post showing them leaning out of a barrier went viral on Tuesday.

The clip, uploaded by Ivan Wong, shows them trying to reach the tree near the side of the bridge in Luen Wan Street.

It drew a storm of comments from netizens mostly critical of the women, according to Headline Daily.

They said the women were not only endangering their own safety but also that of pedestrians and motorists.
