Passenger suffers head, neck injuries as police investigate high-rise suicide at busy Causeway Bay
A man who plunged to his death from a high-rise in the busy shopping area of Causeway Bay hit a van inflicting head and neck injuries on a passenger.
Police believe the 24-year man, surnamed Lam, committed suicide yesterday because of problems at work.
The driver of the delivery van, 43, and a second male passenger, 45, escaped unscathed in the incident, which occurred on Yee Wo Street at about 10.30am. The site is just a short distance from the Sogo department store.
The van was heading towards Central when Lam hit the roof of the vehicle, denting it, before bouncing onto the road, police said.
A police spokesman said he was taken unconscious to Ruttonjee Hospital in Wan Chai, where he was later declared dead.
Surveillance cameras showed Lam alone on the rooftop of 22 Yee Woo Street where he left his rucksack before jumping. Police believe he committed suicide because of problems in his job as a salesman at a shop in nearby Times Square. A source with knowledge of the case said he had
recently received a warning from his supervisor for his poor performance.
The injured passenger, 31, was treated for minor head and neck injuries at Ruttonjee Hospital.
Police said initial investigations found nothing suspicious.
At least two similar incidents have occurred in the city in recent years.
In April 2012, a woman, 55, leapt to her death from the roof of a block of flats in Taikoo Shing and landed on a domestic helper, 49,, killing her.
In February 2010, a woman, 51, died when her female neighbour, 74, landed on her after falling 27 floors in Yiu On Estate, Ma On Shan, in an accident. The elderly woman who fell while collecting clothes from a rack outside her flat also died.
