23rd September 2023 – (Hong Kong) At around 11pm yesterday, a 14-year-old girl fell from the third-floor platform of Tai Wing House, located in Tai Yuen Estate on Ting Kok Road, Tai Po. Miraculously, she landed on a nearby park bench, sustaining injuries to her hands and buttocks. The girl remained conscious and was promptly transported to the hospital for treatment. The police have initiated an investigation into the incident, classifying it as a “suicide attempt.”
According to sources, the girl had a history of emotional issues and had recently been in a relationship with a 16-year-old boy. However, their relationship had encountered turbulence in recent times.
