A 35-year-old Filipina domestic worker was found dead at her employer’s home in Shatin in Hong Kong’s New Territories on Friday.
At around 7:30am, the 41-year-old male employer surnamed Mok discovered his employee had hung herself in an apartment at Carado Garden in Shatin, Oriental Daily reported.
When he found her she was unconscious and the employer immediately called the police. Firemen and police officers arrived but the worker was pronounced dead at the scene. No suicide note was found.
After an initial investigation, police understand that the worker was recently unhappy about family matters, and that there was nothing suspicious about the death. The incident is being treated as a “person found hanging” case.
