There was was still lingering fear as he described it, he said he was cycling in the village when he heard a loud bang outside of the village, so he immediately went to the entrance of the village and saw an overturned truck crushing a taxi. The damaged taxi was packed with people inside, and probably because the driver's neck was snapped, Lau misconstrued the taxi driver to have "lost his head".
The 50-years-old Lau added that in addition of mistaking the taxi driver losing his head, he once had eye contact with one of the passengers in the rear compartment of the taxi. At that time, that passenger was conscious and looked at him helplessly, and not long after the passenger closed his eyes who no longer had movement in the taxi. Therefore, Lau quickly reported the police, and rode his bike away until rescue workers arrived at the scene one after another. Later, after watching television news, Lau learned that the 6 people in the taxi were all dead, and Lau felt uneasy with a devastated and depressing mood.

A bribery scandal broke out in Fu Shan Mortuary in Sha Tin
A staff of Sha Ta Kung Fu Shan mortuary was bribed by a funeral company to help facilitate the funeral company to garner business in the mortuary. Originally, the staff pleaded not guilty, but he suddenly pleaded guilty before the case. Yesterday, the staff was sentenced to 150 hours of community service in Sha Tin Magistracy. In response to case, the Department of Health spokesman stressed that the mortuary management had reminded staff to take a zero-tolerance attitude to illegal activities.
The magistrate judge said the defendant as a public servant to accept interest is a very serious crime that involves a breach of good faith. In general, he should be sentenced to imprisonment, but taking into account the defendant would lose pension being remanded in custody for several days, and the amounts of money involved in bribery was not huge, so the magistrate gave the defendant an opportunity. On the other hand, the defendant appeared to be simple during the trial, even "quite stupid" to say the least, so the magistrate believed he had repented after the crime, therefore he sentenced the defendant to community service instead of imprisonment. Mortuary staff Cheung chi-hung (58 years old) was taken to the court to accept ruling yesterday. After he heard the judgment to be community service, he obviously "breathe a sigh of relief", and did not forget to thank the magistrate.
The defendant was a I level Fu Shan Mortuary worker who was responsible for cleaning and processing documents and other tasks. In April 2006 to April 2007, he was transferred to the mortuary as attendant helping forensic with autopsy, and had authority to check the deceased information and sent to room. The defense pleaded that the defendant was originally scheduled to retire in two years, this conviction will definitely lose years of pension, that is, a big punishment to the defendant, so the defense pleaded the magistrate to give a light sentence.
In October 2006 before the Mid-Autumn Festival, in February 2007 before the New Year and in September before Mid-Autumn Festival, Cheung accepted bribery from a funeral company owner of 300 dollars "lai-see" (red pocket) and a moon cake coupon as exchange for allowing him to wait outside of the mortuary in advance for the family of the deceased to hawk business.
The prosecution earlier showed a video of the defendant with the police, who said he regularly disclosed receiving a deceased body to the funeral company owner 8 to 10 times each month. When the other party heard the information, he would send staff to the mortuary "touting for business." The defendant also said that the owner gave him "red pocket" in holidays, to which he received a total of 300 dollars and a moon cake coupon in one year, during which he had free breakfast many times.

Each shop had closed circuit televisions and alarms such that the company will regularly review the security procedures.
