According to The Blaze, the incident happened at a busy, 24-hour McDonald’s outlet located at Hong Kong’s Ping Shek Estate. People and the employees there were so busy, they didn’t notice the woman slumped and lying dead for an entire day. She was sitting in a quiet corner of the McDonald’s, which could be one of the reasons she was not noticed by either fellow diners or the employees at the restaurant. Upon examining the CCTV footage from the restaurant, she was seen entering the outlet more than 24 hours before she was found dead.

The woman was described as being between 50 and 60 years of age. She was around 1.6 meters tall, had short hair, and was wearing black rimmed spectacles at the time of her death. Officials did not find any documents that would have established her identity. They are hoping to reach out to her relatives by describing her outfit. She was dressed in a grey overcoat under which she wore a white t-shirt, black trousers, and sleepers. She also had a bag and a wallet with her. Primary speculation is that the woman was a homeless street-sleeper and used to spend her nights sleeping over or staying inside 24/7 restaurants like this McDonald’s outlet.
