2nd October 2023 – (Hong Kong) A lifeless body was discovered by passersby on the roadside in Tseung Kwan O. The incident unfolded at approximately 1.05pm today (2nd), along Wan Po Road, near Chun Wang Street in the Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate.

Concerned pedestrians stumbled upon an unconscious man amidst the bushes adjacent to the road and promptly alerted the authorities for assistance.
