Most people tend to live mundane lives. However, occasionally, surprising things do happen. For instance, people passing by an apartment building in Tsin Sha Tsui, Hong Kong got quite a scare yesterday (22nd September, Thursday). Apparently, a foreign lady was trying to escape the police by climbing down the building!
Passerby first noticed the lady when she was crouched outside a window on a small ledge. She was peering into an apartment and seemed to be hiding. However, they soon realised something was up when she tried making her dangerous descent down.
The lady was dressed in a pink nightdress with an auburn bob cut. When she was spotted, she seemed frightened by something and was constantly looking back into the apartment. At the time, she was crouching on a ledge on the second floor. The lady was clearly trying to decide what to do next as she kept glancing between the apartment and the ground. At one point, she attempted to go down, but changed her mind.
Another video later showed her already halfway down the building. She was clutching at an air conditioner’s condenser above a local 7-Eleven. However, she was struggling to find her footing for her next step down. Onlookers were gathered underneath her, clearly worried she would fall. It’s a good thing they did, because she suddenly dropped, startling many, before she caught herself on the condenser’s shelf.
The lady finally used a stop sign to clamber her way down before those at the scene helped her the rest of the way. People could be hear commenting on her stunt in the background. However, it was later reported that police officers arrived and detained the lady after she had reached the ground.
It was later discovered that the lady was actually a 30-year-old man from Thailand. They had apparently overstayed their visit in the country and was afraid of being deported. As such, the foreigner had panicked when the police conducted a raid on their apartment building.
According to news reports, police had apparently been searching for pornographic materials at the building. However, after detaining the person in question, the Thai was sent to a hospital for a check-up. Police reported that the lady had not suffered superficial injuries. Their case was also listed as “someone in an unsafe location”.
