Filipino woman falls to death while cleaning window

A 30-year-old Filipino woman was found dead after falling from a building in Mong Kok on Wednesday night.

The woman’s boyfriend called the police after learning she had fallen from the seventh floor, news website hk01.com reports.

The Fire Department arrived at the scene and found the woman on a second-floor balcony.

She was rushed to the Kwong Wah Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Sources said the woman was cleaning the windows of her flat when she lost her balance and fell. Police have classified the case as a person falling from a height.

The woman was a holder of a temporary ID (Form of Recognizance) and was said to be living with her Pakistani boyfriend in a unit on the seventh floor, according to Headline Daily.

A resident, surnamed Ho, said there are plenty of Southeast Asians in the building but he was unsure if the woman was employed as a domestic helper.
