    Eight people were injured when corrosive liquid dripped from the ceiling of a shopping mall in Tsuen Wan, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports. The black liquid was found dripping from lamp shades attached to a false ceiling at AEON department store at Skyline Plaza on Sunday, according to Apple Daily.

    Two males and six females aged between 11 and 60 suffered burns on their heads, arms, and necks. Small burn holes were seen in the victims’ clothing. One of the victims, a housewife surnamed Lam, said the liquid dripped on her while she was taking the escalator up to the second floor. Her husband was also injured, although their daughter was unscathed. The couple received treatment before being taken to Yan Chai Hospital. Another victim said he was on the phone when he felt something dripping on his arm, causing a burning sensation and immense pain. He said he also found holes in the sleeves of his shirt.

    The victims were all taken to Yan Chai Hospital, although four of them were later transferred to Kwong Wah Hospital for further treatment. The affected area in the mall was cordoned off for public safety. A spokesperson for the Tsuen Wan police district said a maintenance team hired by the mall had used a high pressure pump to clean the drainage with corrosive liquid following a complaint earlier in the week about a clogged pipe on the third floor. It is suspected that several sewage pipes had burst due to wear and tear from frequent use. No one was arrested while police investigation continued.

    Joey Meng attended a Mooncake charity event the other day. She revealed that she is  currently resting after finishing a stage play earlier. She has no plan for vacation due to the hot weather: "It has been 18 months since I see my friends and need some time to see them. I will be working for the next 6 months and may venture in stage play direction."

    Asking if she falls in love in stage play, Joey replied that she has sufficient time for rehearsal: "I prefer slower pace and have enough sleep when returning home at 12 plus. I hope to perform better and increase everyone's understanding about stage play." She pointed out that she has collaborated with 60 people with disabilities in stage play and has got very positive feedback.  She is hoping she will perform stage play with them again in the future.

    A young Hong Kong man is fighting for his life after he was critically injured in a plane crash in Melbourne yesterday morning.

    Trainee pilot Nicholas Cheung and his flying instructor were carrying out a training flight in a two-seater Bristell ultralight plane when the aircraft suddenly crashed at 10:40am local time. Estimates from Australian press accounts put Cheung’s age from 19 to his early 20s.

    A spokesperson for the Civil Aviation Safety Authority told

     that the plane broadcast a mayday message before slamming into a paddock on Hardys Road, on the outskirts of Melbourne.

    The instructor, an unidentified 28-year-old man, was airlifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in critical condition. Cheung, who was trapped in the wreckage, was freed by emergency workers more than an hour later. He sustained injuries to his face, chest, and spine and was sent to The Alfred Hospital. While Cheung’s condition was initially given as “serious but stable”, a spokesperson for the hospital said it had later been upgraded to critical.

    The reason for the crash is still to be determined pending investigations by Recreational Aviation Australia, the national governing body for ultralight aircraft and pilots. The Bristell FG, which was manufactured in 2011, was registered to the Learn to Fly school based at Moorabbin Airport. Learn to Fly acknowledged the accident in a statement on

    A university student from the mainland, who reportedly “went missing” after taking a solo trip to Hong Kong on Saturday, was revealed yesterday to be safe and sound — but behind bars.

    Luo Wanlu, an information engineering student at Shenzhen University, caused a frenzy among Chinese netizens after her family and friends appealed for her whereabouts online. Last night, Hong Kong police told

    that the 21-year-old student was in fact serving a 14-day jail term after admitting she stole thousands of dollars’ worth of cosmetics.

    Luo told her university hallmate at around 1pm on Saturday that she was coming to Hong Kong for a shopping trip and would return home in the evening. The 21-year-old stayed in touch with friends by asking them whether they wanted various snacks and beauty products via WeChat for a few hours,Oriental Daily

    , but abruptly stopped responding to messages at around 5pm that day.

    After about 24 hours, Luo’s classmates filed a missing persons report with the Shenzhen police, who confirmed the student had not crossed the border back into mainland China. Several of Luo’s classmates then rushed to Hong Kong in an attempt to search for the missing student, while her parents filed a report with local police. Later, Hong Kong police told reporters that Luo was arrested on Saturday afternoon when she was caught shoplifting in a Tuen Mun store.

    The young woman had reportedly stolen face masks, cleansing products, and other cosmetics worth a combined HKD2,400 from three shops in Trend Plaza Shopping Arcade and Tuen Mun Town Plaza.

    Luo pleaded guilty to three counts of theft at Tuen Mun Magistrates’ Court on Monday afternoon, and said she was spurred by “momentary greed”. She is currently serving a 14-day jail term at Lo Wu Correctional Institution and will be repatriated back to the mainland after the sentence. After learning of their daughter’s arrest, Luo’s parents broke down in tears and insisted to reporters that their daughter had never done anything like this before. “I know my daughter!” Luo’s father said to Apple Daily
