In Hong Kong, a doctor killed his wife and their daughter near a bus stop by using a yoga ball filled with poison gas, according to the Washington Post. In fact, the killer admitted that ‘last thing’ he wanted was for his daughter to die in the plot.
Court records have revealed that the pair died of carbon monoxide poisoning but the gas did not come from the vehicle itself. Rather, “it apparently came from a yoga ball in the trunk” which was placed there on purpose by Mrs. Wong’s husband, Khaw Kim-sun. Police actually found the deflated ball resting in the back of the mini-cooper.
It all started at a bus stop in Ma On Shan back in 2015. It had been raining, and even though it had stopped, the window wipers of a yellow vehicle caught the attention of someone passing by.
It appeared to the person that “Wong Siew-fung and her 16-year-old daughter” were simply asleep, but 45-minutes later when they had not moved, this person feared the worst. She was correct, and once “rushed to the hospital,” both mother and daughter were “pronounced dead” there, the South China Morning Post confirmed.
Khaw, according to what prosecutor Andrew Bruce told the court, is “a 53-year-old anesthesiologist” who “pumped carbon monoxide into the ball, unplugged it and put it into the vehicle in May 2015.”
He also said that “the last thing the accused wanted was for his 16-year-old to die,” however.
It seems that the father did not know that his daughter was going to be in the car.
That won’t help as case much, as Bruce proved when he added, “if that person knew what was in the car was carbon monoxide and knew it was a dangerous gas likely to kill you, you can confirm this person had homicide on his mind.”
Khaw faces to charges of murder and the bereft man has chosen to “plead guilty,” the BBC has reported.
Aside from the fact that some people have been shocked by how Dr. Khaw seems to have been perfectly fine with killing his wife, but not his daughter, playing with toxic compounds in public can lead to a serious outcome.
In theory, no one knows how many people could have been hurt.
