'Taiwan too nice to leave', says caught Vietnamese worker

Taipei, May 13 (CNA) A Vietnamese woman caught hiding in a ceiling partition at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Wednesday said she was attempting to illegally overstay in Taiwan because she felt the country is "too nice to leave." Duty free shop staff at Taiwan's main gateway first detected something strange after part of the ceiling in a women's restroom near boarding gate A6 collapsed. Police later found the Vietnamese woman, who has been serving as a migrant worker for the past few years, hiding in the false ceiling. The woman said she was scheduled to depart Taiwan that afternoon but changed her mind at the last minute because she "felt Taiwan is a good place," according to the police. The woman climbed into the ceiling space, only to realize that it led nowhere, leaving her stuck there until the ceiling eventually collapsed, the police said. (By Chiu Chun-chin and Lee Hsin-Yin)
