Search fails to find man

A 19-YEAR-OLD man was missing presumed dead after he fell into the water while working on board a barge in Tsing Yi yesterday.

Police said Kwan Tin-chung was standing on a container about six metres high when he slipped and fell into the sea just before 2.30 am near the United Shipyard. His brother-in-law, aged 27, alerted police, who also called in Fire Services divers to help search for the teenager.

But there was no sign of him when rescuers stood down the search at 7.15 am.
