MANILA – The family of an overseas Filipino worker who fell off from a 12-storey building in Hong Kong has accepted her death.

Melanie Nobleza, 45-years old, was employed as a household service worker in Hong Kong.

Nobleza's death was relayed to her family almost after a week.

The OFW was reportedly cleaning a window of her employer's home when she accidentally fell to her death.

Nobleza had been working in Hong Kong for almost 25 years and had been treated well by her employer, her family said.

The family said they will not request for an investigation into her death. They only want her remains repatriated to her hometown in Barotac Nuevo, Iloilo as soon as possible. Report from Jenel Baclay, ABS-CBN News
