A 59-year-old woman was in critical condition in Eastern Hospital last night after she was allegedly beaten by her 38-year-old mentally ill son in their flat on Tsui Wan Estate, Chai Wan. A social worker found the woman unconscious inside the flat after the son answered her knock on the door at about 3.30pm. She called the police, who arrested the man.
