Barbie Hsu gave her husband Wang Xiaofei a big fright when she suddenly lost consciousness at home last month.
At a promotional event held in Taipei last Sunday (March 5), the 40-year-old Taiwanese actress said: "My husband saved my life. Fortunately, he was there (when I fainted)."
After she blacked out, the Chinese businessman took her to a hospital.
According to Apple Daily Taiwan, Hsu had overexerted herself which caused a relapse of her heart condition - mitral valve prolapse.
Some symptoms of the disorder include irregular heartbeat, dizziness, difficulty breathing, fatigue, and chest pain.
Hsu recounted how her worried husband held on to her hands with tears in his eyes when she regained consciousness in hospital.
He also insisted that she undergo a full medical checkup before they returned home, Chung Tien Television reported.
