Boy, 9, dies after fall from window of 15th-floor Hong Kong flat

A nine-year-old Hong Kong boy died on Monday (March 1) after falling from the window of his family’s 15th-floor flat in Lam Tin, according to police. He was believed to have been trying to open a ventilation window in his room at the Laguna City housing estate on South Laguna Street when he lost his balance and fell, a police source said. The source said the window was next to the upper deck of the bunk bed where the boy slept. The tragedy came to light when his father realised his son was not in his bedroom shortly before 7.30am. He then went down to the ground floor to make a fruitless search. After returning to the home, he found the ventilation window in the child’s bedroom was open, then saw him lying on the building’s first-floor canopy below. Emergency personnel were called in after receiving a report from his wife at 7.45am.
