A mentally ill patient, 41, leapt to his death from his public housing flat in Hau Tak Estate, Tseung Kwan O. He was later declared dead in hospital. Elsewhere, a 27-year-old woman was talked down from the roof of a multi-storey car park in Hing Tin Estate after a three-hour stand-off with police and fire officers. In Aberdeen, another woman, also 27, was stopped by her male neighbour when she tried to jump from the 16th-floor staircase of Wah Lai House, Wah Kwai Estate at 8.30am.
