Heartbroken teen in underwear rescued from a cave at Tai Mo Shan

An 18-year-old teen in only underwear was rescued after a four-hour search on Saturday. He took off his clothes and left behind his belongings before walking into a cave at Tai Mo Shan in Tsuen Wan, suspectedly because he was troubled by relationship issues.
The case was reported to police at around 7.19am as hikers passing Tai Mo Shan Road found valuables near the trail, including a jacket, a tablet, and some food, and worried that someone might have fallen off from the mountain.

Firefighters and officers from the Government Flying Service and the Civil Aid Service soon arrived to initiate a manhunt near the slope where the items were found.

Firefighters found some other clothes on a 50-meter slope opposite the scene. Officers also attempted to contact the valuables owner and the owner’s family.

It was understood that the owner was an 18-year-old male student surnamed Lam. He was thin and stood at about 170 cm. Ha also had golden blonde hair.

At around 11am, rescuers finally located Lam, in only his underwear, in a cave by a slope about 200 meters away from a road.

Lam sustained minor injuries to his limbs and chin and was put on a Civil Aid Service uniform by rescuers to keep him warm. Rescuers also retrieved his pants nearby.

Still, blood stains soon appeared on his pants, and Lam, seemingly without any focus, boarded an ambulance with the help of rescuers.

It was understood that Lam had his mind troubled by relationship issues recently and walked in the woods almost naked as he was in a low mood after texting with a female friend.
