A couple is suing MTR Corp. for damages after their Choi Hung flat was flooded with sewage on New Year’s Day. The couple, surnamed Hung, are seeking HK$430,000 (US$55,480) in compensation and repair costs from the Hong Kong mass transit operator.

 

MTRC is accused of negligence resulting in sewage overflowing a toilet in the couple’s Clearwater Bay Road apartment. The incident left a stench that lasted a month, according to a writ cited by Apple Daily. A maid said her employers were injured while trying to scoop sewage from a washroom. The couple were forced to move into a hotel during the two months the flat underwent repairs and renovation. They said they had complained about seeping sewage to the company which sent a security guard and a cleaner instead of repairmen.

 

The company told them it was not responsible for incidents that happen inside a flat, the Hungs said. They said that when MTRC finally sent a plumber, the pipes were not checked and no effort was made to find the source of the leak. And by the time plumber decided to open a suspected obstruction five hours later, the flat had been flooded with sewage.

 

MTRC later blamed the incident on a clogged pipe which had been stuffed with trash and refused the couple’s demand for compensation.
