HK college student dies after auto park fall: hospital

At the root of the protest is what demonstrators see as Chinese meddling with Hong Kong's promised freedoms At the root of the protest is what demonstrators see as Chinese meddling with Hong Kong's promised freedoms

The student was believed to have fallen in the early hours of Monday in the New Territories district of Tseung Kwan O, while police were trying to disperse the protesters with rounds of tear gas.

"His death is a reminder to us that we can not give up", one protester said on local television.

Students and young people have been at the forefront of the hundreds of thousands who have taken to the streets against perceived meddling by Beijing.

Students swarmed the hospital in support of the man, surnamed Chow, to hold prayers and gatherings and at universities across the former British colony.

Activists have thrown petrol bombs and vandalising shop fronts and subway stations, while police respond with rubber bullets, tear gas, water cannon, and even live ammunition. Qiu said violence in Hong Kong is intensifying from vandalism to murder, and some rioters are trying to push Hong Kong into an abyss with those who manipulated behind.

In June, Marco Leung, 35, fell to his death from construction scaffolding after unfurling banners against the extradition bill.

At the University of Science and Technology, Chow's schoolmates staged rallies this week and on Thursday disrupted a graduation ceremony.

"The police have stated earlier that they attach great importance to the incident and the crime unit is now conducting a comprehensive investigation with a view to finding out what happened", it said in a statement. The movement has since expanded to include other demands, including direct elections for the city's leaders.

Desperately sad to hear Alex Chow has passed away.

Chow's death is expected to spark fresh protests and fuel anger and resentment against the police, who are already under enormous pressure amid accusations of excessive force as the city grapples with its worst political crisis in decades.

Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule in 1997 under a "one country, two systems" formula, allowing it colonial freedoms not enjoyed on the mainland, including an independent judiciary and right to protest.

Riot police had been firing tear gas moments earlier, and although the nature of his fall is unclear, his death has sparked further anger at alleged police brutality.
