At 10.24am this morning, an unemployed man sat on the ledge of a rooftop belonging to a walk-up apartment located on Shan Tung Street, Mongkok. Bystanders spotted the man who was attempting to commit suicide before notifying the police and firemen. A safety air cushion was set up by firemen below the apartment to standby for any mishaps.
After negotiating with the man for 1 hour, he finally returned to a safe location. He didn’t sustain any injuries in the incident.
