    Yesterday a man left his home, Kwong Yuen Estate, in Sha Tin to play chess with neighbors in a nearby park, suddenly found his home caught on fire. His daughter waved a towel for help at home, and he ran eleven floors desperately in one breath to return home to save his daughter. His daughter escaped the flame, only slightly injured, but he, the good father was in critical condition because he was suspected of inhaling smoke. There was a female neighbor who also was sick. Fire was probably caused by leak electricity current from a computer which was turned on 24 hours a day in The man's newly wed son's room.

     

    Loving father Chan × Wei (52 years old), currently in hospital in intensive care unit, and has not come out from critical condition; The daughter rescued by dad was Chan × Shan (22 years old). After being sent to hospital for emergency treatment, she had been in stable condition. She was trapped in the room asleep when fire started. Woman, Lau (age 44), inhaling smoke when escaping, had been treated and discharged effectively.

     

    Fire happened in Kwong Yuen Kwong Yeung House on the eleventh floor where a family of 5 lived in a flat, including the head of the household and his wife, two children and a daughter-in-law. The wife was a janitor. Sources at the scene said the fire started in the eldest son's room, in which there were three computers, and one computer was never shut down, turning on 24 hours a day. Firefighters suspected the fire started due to wear and tear of wired-connector that leaked electricity, and since junks were nearby, the fire got out of hand. As to rumor of fire explosion happening many times at fire scene, firefighters in charge said after an investigation, the unit did not have any dangerous goods or compressed gas cylinder. They believed the heated glass window made an audible "bursting" sound that scared people, and the cause of fire had no suspicious circumstances.

     

    The head of household of the fire unit was a cement maker, and he temporarily did not have to work yesterday. When the fire started, everyone in the apartment had left for work, only the daughter was asleep, and the male head of household went to the nearest open park to play chess with neighbors to pass time. To 9:26am, neighbors exclaimed fire started upstairs, and someone trapped inside seeking help. The head of the household, father Chan, looked above, and found smoke continually came out of the window, but he failed to detect his home was on fire. Soon after, Chan, vaguely recognized person in distress was his own daughter, so he ran into the building, running eleven floors forcibly entering into the home passing over flames using his body to cover his daughter in order to prevent her from burns. He then led the way to save his daughter from the flames.

     

    Housing management and neighbors called the police. But due to the premise was constantly emitting smoke and flames, even the upstairs unit was almost affected. When fire was extremely intense, there was a constant "bang" "bang", such "explosion" noises coming from the unit that frightened neighbors, leading the neighbors to carry young and old to evacuate immediately.

     

    Firefighters rushed to the unit immediately and met the father and daughter who were escaping from the fire scene, so firefighters immediately led the two to safety and took them to ambulance staff, after which the two were send to hospital for treatment. The high temperature at the fire scene caused unit's window frames in twisted shape. Firefighters in ladder, sprayed water both inside and outside, and the fire was quickly put out. However, the unit had been severely damaged that looked like the ruins.

     

    After both father and daughter were hospitalized, the daughter suffered only minor injuries, but the father was in critical condition due to smoke inhalation.

    In Wan Chai, yesterday a full queue of people for "Villain Hitting" under the Canal Road Flyover

    Because of economic downturn, employees/citizens resentment grow as companies have to reduce employee benefits, but they have no place to vent. Some employees in the catering industry, forced to furloughs 2 days per month, taking advantage of the Lunar New Year's "JingZhe Day" yesterday by carrying photos of their bosses to Wan Chai's Ngo Keng Kiu to "hit Villain" in order to pray for success in work. Seeing the market situation is bad, some "professional villian hitters" also launch a fiancial crisis price reducing price from 50 dollars from last year to charging 40 dollars in order to to attract customers.

     

    Yesterday, perhaps due to the impact of rain, under Canal Road Flyover packed a queue of citizens waiting for "Villain hitting" despite turnout isn't as good as last year. Mr. Wu from catering industry is a novice in "Villain Hitting", and he frankly admits that he comes to "hit his boss". He says due to bad market situation, his company earlier has layoffs to reduce expenses, and the remaining staff benefits are reduced by boss, that they are forced to take furlough taking two upaid days off per month. In order to vent his resentment, he takes his boss' photo here, "Bring it here, want him dead", he laughs,"which stall is most popular, and I'll be that stall's customer".

     

    And for the sake of "financial crisis price cut", "fat girl" especially charges from last year's 50 dollars to 40 dollars. Although promoting the price cut, she frankly admits that business is still unsatisfactory saying "only get to hit about a dozen". At the same time, citizens' wishes are to have a booming stock market, job stability, good health and excellent opportunity in work.

    sn08030502_big.jpg

     

    Six o'clock yesterday morning, SPCA volunteer surnamed Wong and two male citizens who love cats, bring cat food to feed stray cats in Wan Chai during which they see a black stray cat, appearing in pain when lying on the ground licking water at Sharp Street West in a rare lane behind a Building. They carefully look at the cat and finds its right abdomen with scars that look like a burn scar because skin falls off and its right front foot is suspected to be beaten that the cat is limping. It is possible the cat is abused by a cold-blooded killer, so volunteers call the police.

     

    Police investigate at the scene, transferring the injured black cat to SPCA for test, and the case is classified as "suspected of cruelty to animals."

     

    According to cat lover, with a surname Mi, he and Sze are cat lovers, and they would feed stray cats both morning and evening under any weather. Just cat food expenditure alone, he spends as high as several thousand dollars per month. He says that he just sees that black cat on last Friday and it seems to have no injury. However, a few days later, it has plenty of bruises, so they are deeply suspicious since there are 16 stray cats in the rear lane, but recently one after another showing up less and less, leaving only about 10 cats, so he's afraid the missing cats have been slaughtered.

     

    Prevention of Cruelty to Animals spokesman says the black cat has been neutered, scars on right abdomen is old and could be injured by a hard object, right foot wound has been inflammed, perhaps it has to be amputated. And as to the cause of the injuries, PCA still pending for further examinations.
