Police were looking into the death of a Hong Kong nightclub hostess whose body was found outside her public housing flat on Friday.

Her boyfriend was helping police after investigations showed the pair had a heated row before the 34-year-old woman fell from her 14th-floor flat in Sha Tin soon after 10.30am.

The mother of two boys aged eight and 11 was found lying unconscious on the first-floor podium of Ho Chuen House at Shui Chuen O Estate on Pok Chuen Street. A security guard found her body and called police.

The woman was taken to Prince of Wales Hospital where she was declared dead before 11.30am.

Her two sons were at school at the time of the incident.

Nearby, officers found her 41-year-old boyfriend. Police believed he had drunk half a bottle of red wine.

Officers said the death involved no suspicious circumstances.

“Initial investigation showed the woman jumped out of the window from her flat in the middle of the dispute with her boyfriend,” a police source said.

“It was messy with broken furniture and domestic items scattered around the flat,” the source said, adding that no blood was found inside. He said there was no evidence to suggest the woman was murdered.

The source added that an autopsy would be carried out to establish the cause of death and find out if the woman had been drinking.

Police said there were previous reports of the pair being involved in domestic disputes.

It was understood the woman worked as a nightclub hostess in Jordan and her boyfriend as a clerical worker at a law firm.
