A 40-year-old domestic worker shielded her employer’s four-year-old son from serious injury when they were hit by a driver backing up car in Hung Hom in Kowloon on Tuesday.
The maid, whose nationality was not disclosed by the police, and the boy surnamed Lau went out for lunch about noon. They walked to the intersection of Bulkeley and Ming On streets, when a private car on Bulkeley Street began backing up – without the driver being aware of the pair behind the car, Oriental Daily reported.
The maid immediately grabbed the boy and held him tight. Both were hit by the vehicle and fell on the ground before the 28-year-old driver surnamed Chow stopped his car.
The maid injured her legs but the boy was only scratched. Both were sent to hospital by ambulance.
Police arrived and investigated the accident. Chow passed a breath test for drugs or alcohol, Ta Kung Pao reported.
It is not known if police planned to charge the driver.
Those heartless employers should read this article
That is why maids are called superheroes…
What was maid nationality ? Everytime first thing hk news does that why not on this one?
what? ur headline! the maid injured her legs?
i agree..esp when a foreigner did something wrong,the nationality was alwys on top..
regardless of nationality, its good to know that helpers(to be sound more friendly&valuable) rather than simply saying "maids" (sounds more like a slave)…is being recognized for this heroism acts anywhere in the world but sad to say that "ONLY a FEW" employers can see that..or they simply ignored that for a thought that theyre paying for the service…ah lets say… 24/7 instead of 8~10hrs.. …the worst thing is most helpers are still deprived with enough food and salary….SALUtE to those employers who have given enough..and SHAME for those who are still paying helpers below minimum and expecting the BEST service…
#treathelpersgoodAndThey will treat u good
Thanks God both of them saved…
if this was a celebrity, this would have been big news, detailed revealed, reporters making a fuss.. is it becasue society deems her as "just a maid" that no proper media coverage is done here? and what happened to the driver of the car? What is the police report on this one?
It doesn’t matter what country she came from for us we do only are job.
ayan f good deeds di nila ilalagay nationality.,hehe pansit q lang
Why disclose the nationality of the helper..if negative news you can read every details of the offense the helper made. Now a hero to the family nobody wants to tell..just curious!!!
Nhe Jean …you can say that again…they love their pets more than the one helping them most ..
The article is always like these when the helper did a good job. BUT IF THE HELPER DID/SUSPECTED ON DOING SOMETHING’S WRONG, IT’S IN FULL INFO.
the driver must penalty to his careless backdrive with out paying attention justice to house maid who save the boy .. and paid to her bill out till she get well soon …
That’s so true.
Very well said ma’am,
The maid had no choice. If she did not protect the boy her employer might accuse her of negligence.
What Nationality???? If the maid did bad things, the nationality is so big or headlines..if the maid did something good…the nationality is disclosed! Why???
Silly post. racism must stop right here!
I hope this news can touch the heart of many heartless employers towards thier Maids.
Dear employers you should love ❤️ your employee after all what you showed to them they will give it back to you our duty is to take care only but because of love we give it to you as an extra with out any payments
I would do the same if i am in that situation too…cos it’s my responsibility to look after him other wise it would be an offense for me..negligence…..and we came here for work but not to be threaten..hopefully it would be an eye opener for some stubborn employers treating thier helpers badly….
BS journalism…didn’t bother to ask the heroine’s name
whats the identity or nationality of the Maid?. is the driver not responsible for his RECKLESS DRIVING?… THE RACE OF THE MAID WASN’T DISCLOSED BUT NEVER MENTION WHO THE MAID IS OR WHAT THE RACE OF THE SOCALLED MAID. IF SHE RAISE HER LIFE HER NAME OR RACE NEVER MENTION BUT IF THE MAID DONE EVEN A SIMPLE MISTAKE FLASHING HEADLINES ALL THE NEWSPAPERS EVEN A VERY SMALL DETAILS.
Looks like Pillipino i guess
If the maid do good towards the employer, the news always disclosed the nationality. But if they did bad, they are shouting their country. Medias are biased
