Hong Kong student who fell during weekend protests dies

Protest at Chinese University of Hong Kong

A graduate wears a Guy Fawkes mask during a ceremony to pay tribute to Chow Tsz-lok, 22, a university student who fell during protests at the weekend and died early on Friday morning, at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, in Hong Kong.

Last weekend anti-government protesters crowded a shopping mall in running clashes with police that saw a man slash people with a knife and bite off part of the ear of a local politician.

"We are very sad about the incident, we do not know what's the next step", said a 31-year-old bank employee who asked to be identified by the surname Tam as she protested in centrally located Chater Garden.

Police officials acknowledge that tear gas had been used to disperse protesters near the vehicle park, but say there was only a small amount of gas in the air when emergency responders found Chow.

A police spokesperson confirmed that tear gas had been fired near the auto park where protesters and officers clashed. Police didn't rule out the possibility he was fleeing from tear gas but noted officers fired from a distance. You can sign up to receive it directly here.

Protesters have claimed that police blocked an ambulance from reaching Chow, and in doing so delayed the emergency medical response. "I think the whole of Hong Kong is very disappointed in the police, and does not have any expectation towards them", Lai says.

Her black 2017 Honda CRV was later found abandoned at an apartment complex more than 50 miles away, in Montgomery. A reward of more than $105,000 is being offered for information on Blanchard's location, according to the report.

He was a student at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and was on a two-year undergraduate course at the computer science department.

A moment of silence for Chow was held during the university's second day of commencement ceremonies Friday and a flashmob broke out over lunchtime in the city's center.

Chow was a student at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

The long-running protests were triggered by a now-shelved extradition bill to mainland China, but have extended todemands for direct elections and an independent investigation into alleged police brutality.

Fellow students had been holding a vigil round the clock for Chow as doctors battled to save his life.

She said the midday rally was about showing that Hong Kong people "have not let go" of grievances that have fueled months of protest.
