Woman in Hong Kong found on ground after window cleaning fall

The tragic incident comes months after a woman fell to her death from the sixth storey while cleaning windows in Hong Kong. 

According to Hong Kong News, a passerby found the woman on the ground after the fall in January. 

Officers confirmed she had died at the scene and after an initial investigation, ruled her death as an accident. 

Investigators added she had been cleaning the windowpane of an apartment when she fell. 

In 2019, two workers fell to their deaths in Central Delhi, India, while cleaning windows.

The Hindustan Times reports the two men were cleaning windows on the 13th storey of the building when they plunged to their death. 

It is understood the pair had been hired by a private company and had not been wearing any safety gear at the time of the fall. 

“The private firm was given a contract to clean the glass. When their bodies were found, the two were not wearing any safety gear,” a police officer told the Hindustan Times.
