MANILA - A 39-year-old mentally distressed Filipina allegedly stripped naked and wore nothing but her panties at the Mongkok Mass Transit Railway (MTR) station in Hong Kong.

In a video posted by website Apple Daily, the woman identified only as "Liza" took off her clothes and started screaming in front of ATMs at the train station. 

The woman allegedly had a mental breakdown. She wailed and spoke incoherent words, scaring people.

The incident happened July 23, according to Coconuts Hong Kong

"In typical Hong Kong fashion, no one came to the clearly distressed woman’s aid but instead ensured her continued humiliation by forming a crowd and filming her with their mobile devices," the Coconuts Hong Kong report said.

Someone tried to give her clothes but the woman refused to wear them.

The situation lasted for about half an hour until MTR officers came and wrapped her in a towel.

The police later came and brought the Filipina to a hospital.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has yet to give a statement on the issue.
