The slope was unfortunately somewhat unstable, like almost all slopes in Hong Kong. A major landslide occurred in, I think, the late 1960s or early 1970s which inundated the car-park in a block of flats at the lower end of the slope, on Stubbs Road.  This block of flats was a local Government officers’ co-operative scheme. An Assistant Director of Education was tragically killed as he left his car when the landslide occurred – he was one of just a few senior local officers at the time.

The rainstorm happened on 12 June 1966, as noted in the book "When hillsides collapse".
