A homeless woman lay dead at a Hong Kong McDonald’s restaurant for hours surrounded by diners who failed to notice her, sparking concern over the city’s “McRefugees”. The woman, who police say was between 50 and 60, was found dead Saturday morning and has been held up as an example of the growing number of homeless people who seek shelter in 24-hour restaurants. There are concerns over the plight of the homeless population in the affluent southern Chinese financial hub: concerned groups say that most of these homeless people are employed, but because their salaries are incredibly low and the housing prices are skyrocketing, they're forced to live on the streets and put first the basic need to feed themselves.
