A gambling addict owed 80, 000 dollars debt to loan sharks, and he requested his ex-wife to sell their house to get the money to pay the debt. But ex-wife sternly reprimanded and refused, the gambling addict then climbed out of his apartment onto the canopies threatened to jump off the building, however he was scared and was trapped on the canopy, unable to move. Neighbors found him instead so they called the police. Firefighters rushed to help him return to the house, to which his left foot was injured and sent to hospital for medical treatment.

 

Man threatened to jump from a height was Chuk X Shen (49 years old). Sources said Chuk is a new immigrant who moves back to Dad's place living with dad after he and his wife divorce, but he has a gambling addiction that he loses more than wins. In addition to asking family members for money, he also lives his life by stretch, relying on by borrowing to make ends meet who earlier borrows money from loan sharks owing 80,000 in debt. Due to his inability to repay money and fear of being chopped up at any time, he looks for his ex-wife requesting to sell the house for cash. However, his ex-wife is ballistic after hearing his request and yells at him to "Go to hell".

 

Three o'clock yesterday afternoon, in To Kwa Wan Han, there was a old building on Chun Fat Street where Chuk was despair inside his dad's home on fifth floor. When his father wasn't looking, Chuk climbed out of the window and stood on dangerous canopies threatening to commit suicide by jumping off the building. However, he had acrophobia who held onto clothes rack and couldn't move. Some passersby witnessed the incident and called the police. Firefighters immediately rushed to the scene and after half an hour, Chuk surrendered because of acrophobia and allowed firefighters to take him inside the home. Afterward, he was sent to the hospital for examination.
