A 45-year-old Filipino domestic worker in Hong Kong has died after being found unconscious in her employer’s bathroom.

On January 9, Erlinda Diego Cabulong, who had worked in Hong Kong for 15 years, was found unconscious in the bathroom by her employer Josephine Ngan in her Tuen Mun apartment, sunwebhk.com reported.

Ngan rushed Cabulong to Tuen Mun Hospital but she was pronounced dead on arrival at 8:15am. The cause of Cabulong’s death is not known.

Mercedes Jasmin Diego, Cabulong’s sister, said she could not believe her sister died so suddenly as she was not suffering from any illnesses.

Cabulong’s family had communicated with her the night before she died.

Diego said their family was waiting for the autopsy results before Cabulong’s body can be sent back to the Philippines. Ngan had agreed to send Cabulong’s body back to Manila but her family has to transport it back to their province in Quirino.
