Family members of the Filipina domestic helper who died after being crushed by a wooden cabinet in a Hong Kong apartment are filing charges against the employers, citing negligence.

In 2014, Espinar Raquel Fortes was killed in her sleep after a cabinet supposedly bolted to the wall fell and hit her on the head.

Fortes, 45, was rushed to Tseung Kwan O Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival.

Espinar Anita, the victim’s dependent, filed a writ to the High Court on Tuesday, September 26, claiming that Fortes died due to the employers’ negligence and is asking them to pay an unspecified amount in damages.

The defendants, Ip Ka-man and Cheung Yat-ki, are being sued for damages in accordance with the Fatal Accidents Ordinance and the Law Amendment and Reform (Consolidation) Ordinance, South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported.

During the incident, the couple’s five-year-old son, who was sleeping beside Fortes, escaped unscathed.

The review hearing is scheduled on February next year.
