A Filipina domestic helper acquired injury after she was bumped by a moving car in a carpark as she was cleaning her employer’s own car.
The incident which happened on Oct 16, at a carpark on Broadwood Road, Happy Valley, injured a Filipina identified only as Midriano.
She was immediately taken to the Queen Mary hospital by officers who responded to an accident report around 9:18 in the morning, says a spokesperson of the Police Public Relations Branch.
While taken to the hospital, the victim remained conscious but couldn’t confirm if the driver of the car was arrested or not. An investigation is currently taking place. However, the Philippine Consulate is yet to receive any information regarding the incident.
But according to eyewitnesses, the car who hit the Filipina is a Jaguar sports utility vehicle. It was said that the Jaguar vehicle was on its way out of the carpark when it hit the car of Midriano’s employer. The domestic helper, who was cleaning the car was also injured.
Images of the said incident instantly became viral online as it is posted by a certain “Jeffrey”. Basing on his post, Jeffrey is an eyewitness who was able to see the entire incident.
“This Kabayan is very pitiful. She was just washing the car of her employer when the Jaguar malfunctioned. Happened (on) Broadwood Road, Happy Valley. You can never really determine the life of a person. Please pray for our fellow kababayan,” says Jeffrey in his Facebook post.
In one of the photos which were first posted online, it can be seen that a woman is lying on the carpark lot, as dark liquid spills on beside her. In another post, a red Jaguar SUV is seen and a white car.- SunWebHK
