A British man plunged to his death from a Mid-Levels high rise early on Thursday — just hours after being discharged from hospital. Thomas Dudley Nelson, 31, was found unconscious on a slope at the rear of St Joan Court, MacDonnell Road, by his girlfriend and a security guard whom she alerted after discovering he had disappeared from their 13th-floor rented flat around 11am. He was declared dead at the scene by paramedics. Police said Nelson, who recently left a job with a head-hunting company and was due to take up a new job in December, went to Queen Mary Hospital for treatment on Wednesday (October 21) after he “felt dizzy” following a rugby match. He was admitted and spent one night in hospital before being discharged Thursday morning. There appeared to be no suspicious circumstances, police said, adding that no suicide note was found and a search of the apartment uncovered nothing untoward. According to police, Nelson, who is understood to have lived in Hong Kong for about eight years, went to take a bath in the flat on his return from hospital. His girlfriend, from Singapore, took a nap but Nelson had disappeared by the time she woke up. She then sought help from a security guard who checked cctv footage which showed Nelson going to the 20th floor roof from his 13th floor rented apartment. Later they found him lying unconscious on a slope behind the building. The guard then called police.
