A 50-year-old woman committed suicide by hanging herself from a tree in Aberdeen Country Park - the same site where her daughter hanged herself from a metal stand last week. Poon Siu-yin was found hanging from the tree in Aberdeen Reservoir Road by a male hiker at about 7am. He called police and Poon was declared dead at the scene by ambulance crew. Her 26-year-old daughter, Cheung So-man, committed suicide on Thursday.
