Found dead in a grey BMW

According to Lianhe Wanbao, a resident in her 70s said she had seen the passenger door of a grey BMW open, and a man lying motionless in the front passenger seat.

Wanbao also reported that another man attempted to resuscitate the unconscious man by performing CPR, but the attempt was unsuccessful.

In addition, a woman was spotted kneeling anxiously beside the car.

When a Wanbao reporter arrived on the scene, the windshield and the passenger door of a grey BMW were covered by a white cloth, and police officers were present and investigating.

Another resident, 29, told Wanbao that officers removed a mobile phone and brown handbag from the car.
