After the Afthermath

On 12 Sep 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut stroked Hong Kong. Public beaches were damaged, where four rafts from Shek O Public Beach were either washed to the shore or reported missing.  

Seven months after the storm, Leisure and Cultural Services Department decided not reinstall the 4 rafts in Shek O Public Beach. News finally came out on 2 May 2019, breaking the hearts of every enthusiastic swimmer. Despite critics such as media and general public targeted the ruthless play by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, they could only claim that a ‘raft-less’ beach seemed safer for swimmers... /








‘If we count back to the day where everything started, what after the aftermath still haunts every heart of hongkonger.’
