An unidentified Filipina who fell from the Mong Kok apartment in Hong Kong was declared dead on arrival by a hospital after she was rushed by medics.
The event took place on Wednesday, May 17, at around 10 pm and was declared dead at the Kwong Wah Hospital.
Her Palestinian husband was devastated with the news. Police investigation has not found any evidence of foul play or other suspicious circumstances.
at least 11 people, majority of which are domestic helpers, have fallen to their deaths while cleaning windows or doing renovation work on high-rise buildings according to a Chinese publisher.
This has prompted some countries to call for a ban on window cleaning among their domestic helpers. Months of negotiation eventually led to the passing of a safety clause which prohibits cleaning windows with no safety grills.
However, employment contracts signed on or before December 31, 2016 were not affected by the clause.
