On December 26, 1968, a 27-year old man with mental illness attempted to assault his mother and three police officers with a chopper at Block 28 of the Shek Kip Mei resettlement estate (where is Mei Sang House today). A team of riot police was sent later and a round of teargas was fired in order to capture him for hospital for further examination.
