(Boy) Leung

Name: (Mr.) Leung.
Died: August 23, 2016.
Age at death: 14.
Cause of death: Accident (Fall from window).
Location: Hong Kong, China.

Details:
Young Mr. Leung, whose first name is not known, was staying in a rehabilitation facility. The facility had a questionable history; its director had been twice accused and then acquitted of indecent assault on the patients.

Leung had called his father and begged to come home, but his father could not take him home. He was becoming more and more depressed.

The fourteen-year-old sneaked into a vacant room on the fourth floor of the building and removed the window grille. Then he climbed out the window, possibly trying to escape or to commit suicide. He slipped and fell out the window to his death.
