The body of Cheung Hai-yan, who was killed in a car accident in Tibet, was returned to Hong Kong last night, accompanied by her surviving husband. The 29-year-old was killed when she was thrown out of the jeep they were travelling in. Her husband, Fong Yun-nang, an RTHK radio journalist who was injured in the same accident, said: 'I would like to thank the care and help given by both the mainland and Hong Kong governments, my friends and the media.' A funeral car from the Universal Funeral Parlour in Hunghom was sent at about 8pm to escort the body from the airport. Under Tibetan custom, the dead are normally cremated before the ashes are allowed to leave the region. The body was returned to Hong Kong with the assistance of the Hong Kong government. Mr Fong had remained in Tibet after the accident to arrange the funeral. The other Hong Kong people injured in the accident returned to the city last week. The couple's vehicle, carrying six people, overturned and rolled down a 20-metre slope last Wednesday. Their jeep was part of a five-vehicle convoy carrying 19 Hong Kong tourists and their guides on a 10-day trip to Tibet. A funeral will be held in the next two weeks.
