15th April 2019 – (Hong Kong) Just like a scene from a drama, two men in their twenties who were friends became emotional abruptly and attempted to commit suicide at Yee Kui House, Tsing Yi Estate, 10 Fung Shue Wo Road, Tsing Yi at noon today.
One of the men called the police to inform them that both of them had taken some pills to end their lives jointly inside the apartment. When police and firefighters arrived at the scene, both of them who were still conscious refused to open the door and proceeded to sit on the window ledge. Air mattress was inflated on ground level as a precautionary measure.
After negotiating for over 3 hours, one of them told the police that he was hungry and police put a lunchbox outside the main door. Officers immediately stormed into the apartment as soon as one of them opened the door to take the lunchbox.
Police then tied both of them to separate stretchers before sending them to hospital.
