Thai 'woman' in Zouk cardiac arrest dies

SINGAPORE: A young Thai man who collapsed after suffering a cardiac arrest at nightclub Zouk's New Year Countdown bash has died.

Mr Anan Tunsuwan, 26, was in a coma for ten days before passing away on Thursday morning at Singapore General Hospital, reported Lianhe Wanbao.

His mother, aunt, two friends and a representative from the Thai Embassy were present.

One of the friends is appealing for eyewitnesses to come forward so that they can understand what exactly happened that night, reported the Chinese evening daily.

Mr Tunsuwan, who was a make-up artist, was dressed in women's clothes while partying with friends at the popular club on Jiak Kim Street early on New Year's Eve.

The New Paper reported that there was redness on his hands, neck and face when he was carried out, unconscious.

Two people were performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the unresponsive clubber when the ambulance arrived.

Singapore Civil Defence Force paramedics continued to perform CPR all the way to the hospital. Three other clubbers were also taken to the same hospital with minor injuries, a result of a possible crush within Zouk.

But Zouk's management has said that there was no stampede and there was enough staff members spread evenly throughout the entire complex that night.

Partygoers were there for its star-studded New Year Countdown bash, which featured The Trouse Brothers and Australian-born singer and songwriter Emma Hewitt.
