The woman was asleep in her apartment in Sham Shui Po when she was awakened by thick smoke in her bedroom. She managed to overcome her shock and look for a way to escape, but not before dashing into another room and 'rescuing' three Louis Vuitton and Gucci handbags that belonged to her and her daughter.

The paper said the woman decided to save the handbags because she and her daughter cherished them so much. Please enable JavaScript to view the comments...
