Mr. Ho is still wearing bandage gauze on his feet and is admitted to Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he was interviewed in a wheelchair today, and it can be seen that the exposed toes of his left foot have been significantly blackened, and because the muscles of his feet and the heel of his right foot have been necrosis, half of the soles of his left foot and the entire part below the ankle of his right foot must be amputated tomorrow.

Mr. Ho recalled that the iron gate involved had been hit by a car and had been broken for more than a month, and it was suspected that the iron gate was tilted due to wind and rain, and the new supervisor of the control room, who was not familiar with the process, asked He Sheng and other security guards to assist in repairing. Mr. Ho once refused, "It belongs to my work, it belongs to mechanical and electrical work, and it belongs to my local security guard." It also refers to how to use machinery to maintain the sluice, "Why use machinery to get to it first." But the control room still insisted that they "move back up and down, deal with it, deal with it." Who expected that in less than two minutes, the iron gate would fall directly, and he sighed: "The good color people walk fast, but the people are buried dead, there is no slag left, the barrier is 3 or 4 thousand pounds heavy... it is pressed to a foot."

Mr. Ho believes that the company should seal the iron gate involved, "Well, you can ask someone to help the next gate!" He also said that although he fled immediately, it was too late, and his left and right feet were pressed, "all the positions were purple, the lower layer of skin was thrown out, and the toes were all shattered!" Later, the security company and the cruise terminal sent representatives to visit, and the representative said, "Don't worry, I (the company) will handle any trouble." However, when asked about compensation, He Sheng pointed out that the company has no other support for the time being, "all begging."

Mr. Ho's wife and son both live in the Mainland, and his son has just graduated, and as the breadwinner of the family, Mr. Ho said that he could not afford the family expenses at present, and sighed: "Even if you have to wait two or three years for compensation, why two or three years?" And his wife is in a lot of physical pain, and his son has just finished his education, he said, "There is no plan, see the walking!" In terms of surgery and medical expenses, He Sheng said that he was not too worried, and he thought that public hospitals would not charge too much.

He Xian's sister pointed out that his brother's mood fluctuated greatly, "Sometimes he had nightmares in the middle of the night, and everyone died." Hospitals have to prescribe drugs to control their emotions when needed. She said that after her brother was sent to the hospital that day, the four toes of her right foot and the big finger of her left foot had been immediately removed, and now more necrotic parts will be removed. Ms Ho believes that both the cruise terminal and the security company are responsible, adding that "this interview hopes that the public will pay attention to the work-related injury incident and hope that it will happen again in the future."
