Chow Tsz-lok is the first reported death from the anti-government protests in China. Chow was a student of computer science at the University of Science and Technology in Hong Kong.
During the protest between protestors and police, Chow fell from a third floor parking bay to the second floor where he was found laying in blood and unconscious. Several sources claim that Chow was trying to escape the tear gas used by the police.
Students have called for an investigation as to why it took paramedics nearly 20 minutes to arrive at the scene and what the police did before and after the tragic fatality of Alex Chow.
This call for an investigation has also been echoed by Amnesty International.
There must be an urgent investigation into the events which led up to Chow Tsz-lok’s fall, including into allegations that officers delayed an ambulance crew who were attempting to reach him .t.co/A9X0MXRvy3#HongKongProtest
