HONG KONG (AFP) - A foreign domestic helper aged 28 died on Thursday after falling from a residential building in Hong Kong, police said.

They said the helper, whose name and nationality were not given, fell from a building in the Wong Tai Sin district onto a concrete canopy and was certified dead when officers arrived.

"It is understood that she fell off while cleaning windows in a flat," a police statement said, adding the death was not being treated as suspicious.

There have been a series of such deaths over the years in Hong Kong, where most people live in high-rise apartment blocks.
