There was absolute bedlam as pedestrians pushed and jostled one another in their bid to grab money ‘falling from the sky’ as a man rains down tons of 100 Hong Kong dollar notes from the roof of a residential block
A video of the event posted on Facebook shows hundreds of HK$100 notes fluttering through the sky to the ground.
Police later whisked away a 24-year-old man, Wong Ching-kit, believed to be behind the money rain on Saturday
According to Ching-kit, he pulled off the stunt in a bid to help the poor by robbing the rich.
The hail of banknotes rained down onto the streets of a working-class neighbourhood in Hong Kong, sending bystanders into a frenzy.
The notes were tossed from the top of a residential building in Sham Shui Po district as eager citizens grabbed the notes while others filmed the dramatic moment.
Watch the clip below.
Ching-kit is known online as Coin Young Master and runs Epoch Cryptocurrency, a company that promotes investment in digital currencies.
The money rain stunt was live-streamed on the firm’s Facebook page.
“I wonder if any of you believe money could fall from the sky?” he said, before the camera panned to the top of a nearby building which saw flurries of HK$100 bills flying down like confetti.
