Pedestrian escapes serious injury after elderly woman leaps to death and lands on her at coronavirus-hit Hong Kong estate

A pedestrian escaped serious injuries in Hong Kong on Tuesday (Feb 23) when an elderly woman who had leapt to her death from a public housing block landed on her. The two women, aged 46 and 72, were residents of Luen Yan House of Kwai Luen Estate in Kwai Chung, which was among six buildings issued with compulsory testing notices on Monday after confirmed cases of Covid-19 were found in the blocks. The 49-year-old woman, surnamed Cao, had just completed her coronavirus test at a mobile unit at the estate soon after 10.15am, and had reached the outside Luen Yan House when the elderly woman, surnamed Chan, jumped out of the window from an 18th-floor flat and hit her. According to police, Chan first fell onto the roof of another truck, and one of her limbs hit Cao when she tumbled off to the ground. Police said this vehicle was also used as a mobile testing centre, but it was on standby at the time of the incident.
