British dad, Filipina mom nabbed after daughter falls to her death in HK
LONDON (Web Desk/APP) - The British father and Filipina mother of a teenager in Hong Kong have been arrested after she plunged to her death from an upmarket apartment block.

Police said there was "no suspicious element" in the 15-year-old girl's fatal fall, but arrested both her parents on suspicion of "ill-treatment or neglect of a child or a young person" without giving further detail.

The teenager plunged from the 21-storey apartment block in Repulse Bay in the early hours of Tuesday morning, police said.

Her father, 58-year-old Nick Cousins, is the managing director of the Hong Kong office of British multinational Jardine Lloyd Thompson (JLT), one of the world's leading insurance brokers.

The girl's mother is a 53-year-old former helper from the Philippines, according to local media.

Cousins has been released on bail while his partner was still in custody Wednesday, police told AFP.

The mother was also accused of overstaying her visa, while Cousins was accused of aiding or abetting the overstay. The couple were not married, police said.


It said that their mother had been working as a domestic helper in Hong Kong from 1990 and had begun living with Cousins in 1994.
