The woman’s family members reported the tragedy to the emergency services this morning at around 8.40am, after they found the unconscious 59-year-old woman, surnamed Tse, buried by the clothing.

Ambulancemen later arrived at the flat at Flora Garden on Cloud View Road and certified her dead at the scene.

Police’s initial investigation did not reveal anything suspicious and has listed the case as a dead body found. An autopsy will confirm the cause of death.
