MALAYSIA: The sudden passing of actress and singer Queenzy Cheng (莊群施) on Tuesday (28 Nov) sent shockwaves through the Malaysian entertainment industry and online community.
Her official Facebook page, presumably managed by her team, announced the unexpected news of Ms Cheng’s passing at the age of 37.
As a member of the renowned Malaysian girl group M-Girls, the actress captured the hearts of many with her captivating voice, notably through her enchanting Chinese New Year songs that resonated with joy and tradition.
“Her musical legacy will forever echo in our hearts, serving as a comforting reminder of the joy she brought to countless lives, “ the final Facebook post on Ms Cheng’s page expressed.
Chai Zi, the actor working alongside her, expressed shock over Ms. Cheng’s sudden passing. He explained to the media that he had picked her up to go to the filming location that day.
“We arrived at Damansara around 8 a.m. After having breakfast, we commenced shooting at around 8:30 a.m. She didn’t appear to have any issues at that point.”
After completing the first shoot, Ms Cheng changed her makeup around 10:30 a.m. in preparation for filming the second scene.
“The second scene revolved around the costumes of Malaysia’s major ethnic groups, so she changed into a cheongsam.”
“While she was standing and blow-drying her hair, she suddenly sat down, complaining of feeling dizzy, experiencing a severe headache, and having nausea.”
Two staff members promptly assisted her, ensuring continuous airflow by fanning her.
“There were on-site personnel trained in first aid. Although she was unconscious, she was still breathing. However, her heartbeat was very rapid. Shortly after, her lips and extremities turned purple.”
It was reported that before losing consciousness, Ms Cheng unlocked her phone. Her colleagues urgently contacted her boyfriend to inquire about her medical history. Her boyfriend stated that she had always been healthy, except for her father’s ear imbalance.
An ambulance arrived within 5 minutes, and paramedics immediately initiated emergency procedures, but sadly, she couldn’t be saved.
“From when she mentioned feeling dizzy until she passed away, it was only about 30 to 40 minutes,” said Mr Chai.
