Ng Man-tat hospitalised for heart problems

A bacterial infection triggered heart problems for the veteran Hong Kong actor

Veteran Hong Kong actor Ng Man-tat, who was once Stephen Chow’s golden partner, was recently hospitalised after feeling severely unwell. The 62-year-old was diagnosed with heart failure caused by a bacterial infection. His condition was reportedly so serious that he had to be transferred to the ICU (intensive care unit) at one point.

Fortunately, Man-tat’s condition stabilised after one week of treatment at the hospital and he has since been recuperating at home.

The actor’s ill-health is believed to have resulted from his hectic schedule and lack of rest. Though Man-tat recently caught a cold while filming in China, he plunged straight into promotional work for his new movie Overheard 3, after returning to Hong Kong.

According to media reports, Man-tat agreed to star in this Hong Kong film after 16 years, because of the lucrative offer and suitable schedule. His fans were elated when he took up a role in another Hong Kong movie Aberdeen, which happened to commence filming at the same time.
