Philippines Seeks to Stop Filipino Maids From Cleaning Skyscraper Windows in HK

A Filipino maid was cleaning the windows of her employer’s apartment in Tseung Kwan O when she lost her balance and fell to her death. The 35-year-old was the fourth helper in Hong Kong to have died washing windows this year alone.

Alex Vallespin, Philippines’ Vice-consul in Hong Kong, said he plans to ask the Hong Kong government to stop employers from ­forcing Filipino maids to clean skyscraper windows, according to South China Morning Post.
