A woman who came to McDonald’s, was found dead after sitting at a table for 24 hours.
The woman who worked as a street cleaner, was found dead inside the McDonald’s, 24 hours after entering the establishment.
Police said that the woman, who was found in a McDonald’s in Kowloon Bay, Hong Kong, did not have any ID on her and she is believed to be homeless.
The woman entered the 24-hour McDonald’s at 8:30 a.m. and was found dead the next morning. Surveillance video showed that at 1:20 a.m., the woman suddenly slumped over the table.
Customers ate their late night meals at the tables around the woman, but nobody paid attention to her.
It was not until later that morning around 8:30 a.m., that an employee of McDonald’s called emergency services after finding the unconscious woman at the table. She was confirmed dead at the scene.
The restaurant was busy as police arrived at the scene. The area where the woman was sitting, was cordoned off, and customers continued to eat inside the restaurant.
Police said that the woman is between 50 and 60 years old.
McDonald’s released a statement saying: “In order to provide a pleasant dining environment, we would not disturb our customers, but our service will be offered promptly upon request.”
They also said that the woman did not order any food, but she was given water when she asked for it.
