A guy who was only married eighteen months ago chose to end his life due to the pressure of keeping up with monthly expenses. The newly wed plumber used 60% of his take home pay on rent as well as paying all other out going expenses, he couldn't make ends meet every month. Recently, he asked his wife to move back to his parents' "public housing" unit, but his parents didn't want to spend money to renovate the house to make room for them. His wife also didn't want to leave their "love nest". He was in a dilemma and found himself being "sandwiched" in situation beyond his control and felt he couldn't provide a comfortable home for his wife. Yesterday morning, his car was found on the road side in Kowloon City, with a hosepipe attached from the exhaust to the car window. He left three suicide notes at home.
The deceased was named Wong Tin Chi, (age 31). He worked as a plumber and electrician for a property management company. He took home over $10,000 a month. He has a brother and a sister. His parents live in a small public housing unit measuring 300 ft in Sha Tin Lung Hang Estate. Wong never finished his high school, through his brother, he started working for the property company after he successfully obtained his license to work as a plumber and electrician. In January last year, he married his long time girl friend, and they rented a flat in Wong Tai Sin as they could not afford to buy their own property. The monthly rent is $7,800. Wong's wife is a co-owner of a private tuition centre in Tsim Sha Tsui, but the business has been losing money and Wong has been helping her as well as paying off the installment for his car. His owed the credit card company a lot of money.
According to Wong's parents, he mentioned to them about the amount of expenses he had to pay every month, and suggested to his wife that they should move back to live with them. To do that, they have to reorganize the living room space to make a 50ft room for them. Wong's wife thought the toilet is too narrow and a lot of work has to be done to accommodate them, but Wong's parents was against the "renovation". His wife and the in-law had an argument over that, and Wong sensed his marriage was in the brink of breaking down. Wong's father said he told his mother about his worries, and said he would move back to the parents' unit by himself. He also told his mother that his father-in-law had questioned him "Are you able to provide a home for my daughter?".
Two evenings ago, Wong had dinner with his parents in Lung Hang Estate as usual. He left just after midnight. At around 6 am yesterday morning, an old man called Lai was having his morning walk along Inverness Road in Kowloon City, he found a car with its engine still on. He took a closer look and discovered there was a hosepipe attached to the exhaust of the car on one end, and the other end was put inside the left back passenger window which was sealed with duck tape. He also found a man slumped over steering wheel. Lai called the police. When the emergency team arrived, they broke the window and took Wong to hospital, he was certified dead on arrival in hospital. Upon hearing the news of his death, his wife, parents and relatives all rushed to hospital. Wong's father later found three suicide notes in his bedroom.
