According to Cacdac, the male Filipino sustained wounds from broken glass while the Filipina inhaled smoke.

“Both are safe [and] out of harm’s way. That is the report that we have so far. Of course, we are constantly monitoring the situation together with our migrant workers office and our Philippine Consulate General in Hong Kong,” he added.
