A Filipino domestic helper was found hanging by her 90-year-old employer in Kimberley Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, yesterday morning.
Her suicide broke the heart of her employer, who now has no one to take care of her.
The 90-year-old woman found Brenda hanging from a scarf at 7:46 a.m. Sunday and called the security guard for help.
The maid’s death was not suspicious, police said.
They said they believed she had been suffering from financial distress for some time.
Her employer’s sons and daughters emigrated to the United States long ago.
Brenda had taken care of her for the past 10 years.
The elderly woman’s friends from church came to visit and offer her a helping hand after hearing about the incident.
