A bereaved family that lost two children in the 2012 Lamma ferry collision has settled two of its four compensation claims with the owner of one of the boats, the High Court heard on Friday. Kwok Yin-tang and his wife Wong Yee-yi, who both survived the disaster that claimed 39 lives, reached an unspecified settlement with Hongkong Electric in respect of their personal injury claims. But future loss claims relating to their daughter Laura Kwok Leung-ying, 4, and son Matthew Kwok Man-hei, 3, who were both killed in the crash, remain to be settled.
