    Indonesian woman was suspected to be distraught over family problem that she unexpectedly stabbed herself in the stomach first with a fruit knife then with a butcher knife in her home in Kwai Chung last night. Her husband, witnessing this act, hurried to pull out the knife, which got her wife to bleed more. The Indonesian woman's life was critical after being taken to hospital, and her husband also needed treatment for cuts on hand.

     

    Indonesian woman (thirty-years-old) married to husband by last name Lau (46 years old) to Hong Kong a few years ago. They both lived in Hong Yam House. At eight pm last night, the victim suddenly became emotional, grabbing a fruit knife from the table to stab at her abdomin, to which Lau pulled out the knife quickly from her. Yet, the victim immediately ran to the kitchen with her stab wounds, and took out a 30cm long butcher knife to pierce through her stomach. Lau followed her, and pulled out the knife as well, and called the police. At this point, blood was pouring out from victim's wounds, and victim lost consciousness. Ambulance staff arrived to stop her bleeding and rushed her to hospital. Lau was also taken to hospital for treatment because he cut his right finger when pulling out the knives.

     

    A & E specialist Pang Gei-Mao said that Lau indiscriminately removing knives for the victims could cause excessive bleeding which can lead to death. The best way to manage persons with self inflicted stab wounds was to have the victim laid flat, and applied pressure to stop bleeding. Ensure breathing and listen for pulse for the victim, and finally called the police as soon as possible to send the victim to hospital.

In Bun Festival, bun-snatching is the main competition and this year an improved version of the imitated buns will be adopted for the bun-snatching competition to facilitate a speedy competition for athletes. Cheung Chau Bun Festival Council says people are getting lax on vegetarian diet during the festival. Last year, restaurants even sold non-vegetarian diet, therefore Council calls for fast food establishments on the island to strictly adhere to the rule of vegetarian diet during the Festival.

     

    Lo Tung-Wah, Acting Police of Divisional Commander of Cheung Chau estimates that together with 3 days holidays of "51" Labor Day, there would be 50000 to 60000 visitors to Cheung Chau. The number of visitors would be 5,000 more than last year's 40000 people, to which bungalows and hotels vacancy on the island have already been full. And on the 2nd of next month, visitor will reach its peak flow and is expected nearly 20,000 people will come to the island. Police will deploy 360 mobile forces to maintain order, the Government Flying Service and Civil Aid Service will simutaneously be present to maintain order.

     

    Snatching-bun Competition is the main display of Bun Festival. This week, a competition to select athletes will be conducted, and the first 12 players leading in the competition can enter into final. Leisure and Cultural Services Department says they will reserve 1500 seats for tourists to view the snatching-bun competition, and 80 standing space is also reserved outside of the arena. Admission tickets will be distributed at the Firefighter Department next month on the 2nd, and people can enter through Pak Tai Temple at 10:30am to watch the competition. The competition will commence at 11:30, and is expected to end at midnight 1:40.

     

    This year, there are 9000 imitated buns for athletes to use. In order to facilitate the athletes to grab more, improved version of imitated buns will be introduced in particular for the competition. Tang Man-wah, LCSD's Chief Leisure Manager (New Territories West) says the result of using imitated buns in the past years is successful, but some people complain the buns material to be hard and buns' size to be small, so this year they will use softer material for the imitation buns. In the past, up to 70 to 80 old buns can be placed in a bag, if the improved version is used, capacity can increase 10 percent, accomodating for 80 to 90. She adds that people can go to Cheung Chau Sports Center or Central Office with their admission tickets to exchange for a imitated bun for souvenir. On the other hand, Authentic "Safety Bun" will be distributed at 9:00 am on May 3 in Pak Tai Temple Square. EAch person can receive 4 to 6 buns, and 20,000 buns is expected to be distributed. President of Cheung Chau Bun Festival Council, Yong Chi-ming says people seem to have ignored the traditional value of vegetarian diet because last year some restaurants sold non-vegetariann diet. After a warning was issued from the Council, the restaurants did stop selling, but he still calls on restaurants to observe meat fasting.

     

    Due to scaffolding workers injury last year, The Labor Department demands actors from "color float" to buy insurance this year. Earlier, the press reports purchasing insurance has affected Bun building projects. In response to this insurance issue, Yong Chi-ming says everyone has bought insurance, and has received letters from the solicitor on the accident, but so far no injured scaffolding workers has asked for compensation. However, he admits that the project has been slightly affected because they have to take into account of security, but the stent structure is in progress and is expected to be completed by next Monday or Tuesday.

     

    At 1:15am on May 3, Transport Department will add one more line from Cheung Chau to Central, people can take ferry back to urban areas. The bus companies will be providing additional buses to and from Central Pier to Mong Kok, Siu Sai Wan, Sha Tin and Shun Lee Tsuen as well.
