Police were last night questioning an acupuncturist following the death of an elderly woman who is believed to have taken tablets she prescribed. Chong Lai-wah, 67, had flu and went to see the acupuncturist in Boundary Street, Shamshuipo. She was reportedly given tablets on Wednesday. Chong complained of feeling unwell after dinner and a bath in her Pei Ho Street home. She was taken unconscious to Caritas Medical Centre where she was declared dead at 8.30pm on Thursday. Chong, who also suffered diabetes, high blood pressure and a heart problem, regularly visited Caritas Medical Centre. Medicine prescribed by the hospital and the acupuncturist was found in her home. Police raided the unlicensed acupuncture clinic and seized a large quantity of controlled drugs, medical instruments and patient records on Thursday. The acupuncturist was then arrested.
