A 46-year-old Macanese woman, who was found impaled by steel reinforcing bars at a Taipa construction site yesterday morning, was certified dead during rescue. Police at present ruled out the possibility of foul-play.
The woman, surnamed Rosario, was found injured at around 8am in the construction site opposite to the Macau Jockey Club in Estrada Governador Albano de Oliveira when the site workers went to work.

Fire Brigade was called in to cut the four steel reinforcing bars impaled through the woman’s head and legs using an electric saw.

The 46-year-old was unconscious and had no responses during the rescue. She was certified dead at the scene by 10am.

The body was seen face-down and the Judiciary Police is investigating the cause of death. Police spokesman said it was initially believed that she jumped from a high point and killed herself.

The site workers said the woman was not their co-workers. The police, however, refused to reveal her occupation but said she was married with children.

A car was found on a slope near the construction site and police are now investigating whether it belonged to the woman.

No suicide note was recovered either from the body or inside the car.
