22 February 2013 / 3 years 8 months ago

In the early hours of February 12, Bobby Au Yeung (歐陽震華) was rushed to the hospital. Fortunately, his friends reacted quickly to Bobby’s condition, which led to him receiving proper medical attention and averting possible brain damage. Michael Tao (陶大宇) found Bobby lying on the sofa at their friend’s house party. Since a doctor and police man were among the house guests, Bobby’s vital signs were considered to be in danger and he was sent to the hospital. On the way to the hospital, Bobby was already unconscious and has lost his ability to breathe on his own.After 4 days in ICU and another 4 days in the acute comprehensive medical ward at the Ruttonjee Hospital, Bobby sounds alert and cheerful, even though he coughs occasionally between conversations. Bobby revealed that he had no recollection of what had happened that fateful day. He recalled, “All I could remember was having a good time taking photographs at a friend’s house. Whatever happened after, I had no idea.‘According to his wife, Rosanna Fu (傅潔嫻), Bobby had retreated to a corner at one point during the party, settling down onto a sofa. Thinking that Bobby was drunk, Michael Tao had shaken him, intending to wake him up. It was only then that Michael found Bobby with his eyes rolling and suffering cramps.The doctors spent 12 hours to revive Bobby and his strong willpower managed to pull him through. Apparently, the longer he remained unconscious, the higher his chances of suffering brain damage. Even though the nightmare is behind him now, Bobby is still petrified at his near-death experience and is ever so grateful to his wife and friends.
