HELICOPTERS EXPECTED TO TAKE TO THE SKIES AGAIN The Government Flying Service (GFS) expects its fleet of Eurocopter C155 B1 helicopters to re-enter service later today. The helicopters were grounded on Tuesday as a precaution after a pilot reported a broken oil cooling fan in the main gearbox on one of the four aircraft during a flight test. But detailed checks of their gearboxes turned up no further problems. The flying service has had a string of problems with the B1s, bought late last year. Early in August, a door fell off one of the helicopters and was lost in Victoria Harbour. The same month, two GFS pilots were killed when their B1 crashed into a secluded hillside on Lantau. SUICIDE BID BY NEAR-NAKED WOMAN THWARTED AT BEACH A 22-year-old woman stripped down to her underwear and bound her legs with her bra before hopping into the sea in a suicide attempt at Shek O beach. The woman had left a note on the beach which said she wanted to kill herself because of love problems. A life guard pulled her out of the water. She did not suffer any injuries, but was taken to Eastern Hospital for observation. SECOND SUSPECT IN MEAT-SHOP MURDER BAILED A second suspect arrested over the murder of the co-owner of a roast-meat shop in Sheung Shui was released on bail. The 42-year-old man was detained at the Lowu checkpoint on Tuesday when he returned from Shenzhen. The other suspect, the former employer of the victim, Tse Yiu-yuen, has also been released on bail after being arrested on Monday night. Tse was shot dead inside a toilet in the Sheung Shui Centre on Monday. BOY HIT BY TRUCK CRITICAL A six-year-old boy was fighting for his life after being hit by a truck in Mongkok.
