Drowned in sea,life in danger

TVB veteran artiste Chun Wong experienced pleasure followed by sorrow yesterday. After he had his heavy dinner and became drunk,he lost his balance and fell into the sea. Chun Wong weighing almost 200 pounds was having a feast with TVB artiste Lee Ka Sing and several other best friends at Cheung Chau yesterday.

During late night when he was already full and drunk,he was accompanied by a friend to the ferry terminal,to ride a ferry back to Hong Kong island. While he was walking on the gangplank preparing to board the ferry,he lost his balance and tripped himself,causing him to fall into the sea. He was already unconscious after he was rescued by the sailors,police and firemens. Because of the urgent situation,his friend had to call in the goverment flying service to transport him quickly to the nearest hospital for emergency rescue.

The accident

According to his friend and passer-bys,Chun Wong's leg was wobbly after he was drunk,his body also has strong smells of alcohol,he departed the restaurant at about 11pm. Because that he was drunk,his friend walked to the ferry terminal with him.

While Chun Wong and his friends were walking at the gangplank preparing to board the ferry,he suddenly lost his balance,tripped and fell into the sea. His friend only weighing 130 pounds was unable to support his body which was about 200 pounds.

The rescue

The sailors was also unable to rescue such a heavy person,they attempted to throw a life buoy to keep him afloat but was unable to get the attention of the drunk man. The captain of the ferry also requested the nearby ships to stop moving,to avoid colliding with him. Helpless to retrieve him back to shore,his friend called the fireman and police for help.

The police and firemen arrived together after a couple of minutes to pool efforts to save him,after being saved to shore he was already unconscious. He was immediately sent to the nearest clinic in Cheung Chau at first but the clinic has insufficient facilities to save him. As the situation is critical,his friend had to call in the goverment flying service to transport him to the nearest hospital for emergency rescue.

More about him

According to the latest news,Chun Wong's current situation was not optimistic. He was being sent to the Intensive Care Unit after the emergency treatment and was still currently in coma. Apart from being drowned,he had suffered serious injuries from falling down from a 2-storey height,the temperature in the water was below 10 degrees yesterday,which had also caused him to suffer from Hypothermia.

Chun Wong,original name Leung Yat Sing,married,60 years old this year was a veteran actor and had worked in the media industry for almost 32 years,with about 20 years serving TVB.He was often given a role in dramas as someone that is fat but have a good attitude.

Yikes, that was a close one. I hope Chun Wong will be alright. He's one of my favorite TVB veterans...very funny and entertaining. I absolutely loved him in LOCH. To this day, I don't think anyone can play the role better than him.

Glad the Lo Wan Tung is ok lol. Is he only 200 pounds? Seems like he would be more, but I haven't seen him in a while, he was pretty overweight in HSDS 2000.
