A mainland boy, who was reportedly unwell, was seen defecating in the public area of the MTR’s Tsim Sha Tsui Station on Saturday, according to Apple Daily.
A video uploaded to a Facebook group by a netizen called Unique Cheung showed white tissues on the floor, covering up the faeces.
The video also showed a man and five boys being challenged by the maker of the video, questioning why the boy defecated in a public area, and saying: “This is Hong Kong, not mainland China, don’t you understand?”
The group was said to be from mainland China on a summer visit to Hong Kong, and the group leader explained that the boy was feeling unwell.
Netizens slammed the man for letting a child do that in a public area, commenting that the group’s behaviour was uncivilized.
A spokesperson from the MTR said that they received a report at 1:30pm and had arranged for a member of staff to clean up the area.
The MTR also reminded commuters that toilets are available in most MTR stations, and that passengers can always request assistance from MTR station staff.
