An elderly worker slipped and fell while working on the ceiling of New Century Plaza in Mongkok, injuring a passerby. The accident happened at 10.30am when the man, 60, was working about three metres up on a decorative ceiling when he lost his balance and stepped on a loose metal plate before falling off. The plate hit a man, 53, who was going up an escalator. The worker suffered bruises to his back, neck, hands and legs and the passerby to his hands. Both men were taken to hospital.
