Sai Kung Tang Shiu Kin Sport Ground
A policeman was declared dead before he reached Tseung Kwan O Hospital today after being found unconscious at Sai Kung Tang Shiu Kin Sport Ground.
The 45-year-old policeman was off-duty and was jogging during lunchtime with a colleague in the hottest day of the year, at 34 degrees Celsius, reports the SCMP.
The colleague said that the policeman felt dizzy while jogging and took a break, but collapsed as he started jogging again – that’s when he called for help immediately.
The Hong Kong Observatory advises everyone to avoid strenuous outdoor work or activity as the hot weather heightens the risks of heatstroke.
