A model slipped into a coma and died after suffering a brain bleed while singing karaoke.

Karen Stella Wong was rushed to Singapore General Hospital after feeling numbness down one side of her body while out with friends.

The 28-year-old slipped into a coma and died three days after collapsing on December 12, local media reported.

Ms Wong had suffered an intracerebral haemorrhage a bleed to her brain, which caused her to have a stroke.

She had no known medical conditions, her family said.

Father Laurence Wong, 60, told local media: “Once in a while she got a headache like normal people do.

“The doctor said that even a common headache could be a symptom, but no doctor would ask a normal guy with a headache to go for a scan.”

Ms Wong donated both her kidneys and her liver after her death.

Her father said: “I heard they managed to do transplants on three patients and I feel it’s a blessing that at least she can save three people.”

But he added that he was worried how his wife, who was extremely close to their daughter, would react to the news.

He said: “My main worry now is my wife. They were like sisters. How is she going to handle it? I put her up in a relative’s house for the time being.

“It’s very difficult for me. I cried for two days. No matter what, I told myself I must be strong for my wife and my mother.”

The UN however warns the death toll could be higher. But there seems to be conflicting death tolls for the violence.

Britain, UN worry over Internet shutdown in Zimbabwe.

Published

on

In the wake of deadly protests against a fuel price hike, and an ongoing internet shutdown in Zimbabwe, the United Nations has urged the government to stop “excessive use of force” by security forces including firing live ammunition.

The government has said three people died during demonstrations that broke out on Monday after President Emmerson Mnangagwa raised fuel prices by 150 percent.

Lawyers and activists say the toll was much higher and that security forces used violence and carried out mass arrests to quell the unrest.



The internet was cut off earlier this week, with critics saying the government sought to prevent images of its heavy-handedness in dealing with protesters from being broadcast around the world.

Leading mobile operator Econet Wireless said the government had ordered it to shut down services.

“We were served with another directive for total shutdown of the internet until further notice,” Econet said in a statement.

“Our lawyers advised that we are required to comply with the directive pending the court’s decision on its legality.”

Friday’s fuller internet shutdown also affected emails.

Due to the shutdown, Harare banks were providing only partial services and no cash machines were working, a witness said, while long queues formed at petrol stations and shops.
