UPDATE: Lee Kuan Yew’s heart attack rumor a hoax

08Mar10

A rumour is doing the rounds that Lee Kuan Yew suffered a “massive” heart attack late on Friday, March 5 and is presently hospitalized at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Cardiac Unit of the Singapore General Hospital (SGH).

Singapore Dissident: Singapore strongman 87 year old Lee Kuan Yew suffers massive heart attack

The origin of the rumor appears to be Gopalan Nair’s personal blog (above) and LEEWATCH has no independent confirmation at this time, although there is very vague anecdotal “evidence” that police were seen at Oxley Road and SGH.   The blog entry is factually incorrect and outright delusional in parts: for example, Lee’s wife is warded at Tan Tock Seng, not SGH, and there are certainly no “Down With the Dictator” demonstrators on Orchard Road!  The choice of hospital also seems odd, as SGH is a public hospital (and not a particularly good one) and not very convenient to Lee’s office or residence — although apparently Lee does use SGH for checkups on occasion.  The mainstream media has kept silent, but this is to be expected as they will not report on any health issues until the PMO gives the go-ahead, and have censored some news completely (such as Lee’s bicycle accident).   We will keep tracking the issue as it develops.

UPDATE: Gopalan’s blog has been updated to state that “this is a hoax”.

    Well, what a rude blog. I know many are dissatisfied with the curent political party, but hey, without them, things would be worse than now. LKY did a great job advancing Singapore such that we are able to lead lives of acceptable quality and we should be thankful for that. Look at the millions in other parts of the world who are still suffering from hunger and who lack proper nutrition. No doubt Singapore has become a country not belonging to Singaporeans, but without LKY, we wouldn’t even be able to call Sg home!!

    Thankfull
    To have a Minster like Lee Kuan Yew to pull us through all the year round is remarkable. I belive he was not so well at recent times, but hope to see him at the Nationap Day Celebration.
    Glory goes to him.

    Without Mr Lee , could you imagine if our daughters were at the red light area trying to earn to feed our family? Still don’t understand go down to Geylang as see !

    Glad to read all the above comments. All of us are on the same page, denouncing the guy who started the rumour and about Spore.

    We have all matured and able to differentiate what is right and wrong.
    Compare to other parts of the world, east or west or north or south we are much better of.

    We will succeed and do well!

    To Those who wants to wait for curry function, go home to eat your own curry…

    Just simply show how low class these people are, who cannot win by the election way…

    Man when enter old age will sure die 1 day but no need to curse and swear, especially at this birthday time, despite all the political differences…

    Simply low class

  12. 12 Vincent

    The idiot mama & that no class ex NTUC dog must be jailed for spreading the inhuman rumours!
    Mr. Lee Kuan Yew is priceless to our beloved Singapore! He sacrificed & put his life & family at great danger in the late 50s & 60s and fought for independence for Singapore.
    Don’t let them off lightly, they committed treason against the state by spreading malicious rumours.
    Inmagin if the rumours have racial under tones, history of dark days will reoccurs!
    Book them! and make them spend the rest of their lives in jail!

    Yes, everyone has to leave this world. If life is so bad for us we shouldn’t blame others. We should learn how to accept our fate. Mr LKY had done and contribute a lot to our nation. Let us be graceful and not pass such rumour.

    Was indeed very very glad to see OUR GOD FATHER MM Mr Lee Kwan Yew at the NDP 2012 this evening. :):):) We are honored to have a leader of such a high caliber. Without him, Singapore will not be what it is today. We wish him many more happy & healthy years ahead. may our father Lord Ganesha bless & grant him good health, wealth, prosperity, progress, happiness & a long, fabulous life. Praise the Lord! My family, my friends & myself, are very thankful to you for a peaceful singapore. We love you, our Godfather! ;)

    The very first person I wish to see on this National Day is the founding father of modern Singapore, our Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. Only then can I enjoy the show.

    Although I cannot be at Marina Bay, having seen him on TV is good enough.
    Happy Birthday Singapore, I love you Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.

    God bless.

    I was with my friends having dinner at Toa Payoh Lor 8, last Tuesday. One friend who went to a nearby shop to buy something came back in a hurry and told that the people near the shop were saying in a local dialect that Mr LKY has passed away. The same evening and the following day, more talks were heard about it. My friends from KL also called me to find out. I told them its all rumours and you will see him at the parade. Mr LKY’s presence had brought great relief to all Singaporeans. Sir, you are the best father we have. We love you so deeply and we, who are your children bless you with good health always. Sir without you, there is no Singapore. We are proud of you and when overseas, i walk with my head held high and its because of you, my dear father.

  27. 27 vincent

    one apple rot does not mean the whole basket of apples are rot too. please leave him alone. my generation will remenber him as a founding father, without him we will not be what we are today. so the rumours should stops here.

    Mr. Nair, you’re just being bitter, utterly bitter! This is what you want for yourself; don’t blame others. Spreading a rumor like this, with NDP just around the corner, is no gentlemen and it didn’t well of your integrity. We are immensely glad to have MM Lee giving his all to bring Singapore to what it is today and we are eternally grateful to him.

  31. 31 Vivienne

    No words can describe how much I appreciate what Mr Lee has done for us, I have travelled to many countries only to realise again and again how fortunate we are to be Singaporeans. For those who keep complaining, i wish you will wake up one day in one of those countries, stay there for a year or so and you will realise how lucky you are. When I heard the rumour yesterday, I was terribly upset, When I saw LKY on TV, I was so happy and relieved! I Love you, Mr Lee KY from the bottom of my heart and I wish you long life and good health!

    When I got the malicious rumours, my heart miss a beat! Whoever that start the rumour has to be ashamed of himself. When NDP starts, I waited for MM Lee appearance anxiously. When I saw him, i was very happy and relieved. He had done so much for Singapore, he is a gem to Singapore. I love him and wish him long life and good health

    if the uk…it say “long live the king” but in singapore, i say “long live lky”..
    without lky, singapore will be like malaysia, thailand etc etc…..a ulu and kampong place, no doubt some of the policy might make singaporeans fed up but on the other hands…..we must look at the big picture and think out from the box, same as our lky……once again “long live lky”.

    I really love our Singapore leader MM Lee & appreciate his love for our country. I hope he can really live to 130 years old if there’s such a good Made in Singapore Doctor. I only found some information that this Dr Yap comes from Annie Tiang Tcm.

  57. 57 Affable Citizen

    The inability to retire gracefully shows LKY has led a dismal life.

  58. I breath with relief when I saw our founding father on NDP! He has done so much for all of us and Singapore wouldn’t be what it is today without him. Gopalan Nair, what the hell is wrong with you? Are you deprived of attention or something? Please do us a favour and shut up, lock yourself up and throw away the keys! Somebody please give him something to do as I am thingking that he is too free with nothing to do and so decided to be a full time idiot!!

    LKY’S panel of doctors are damn powerful & intelligent. LKY really knows how to use them.I think he only uses Prof Dr or 3-4th generation Tcm Dr. I heard my friend says one of them is from Dr Annie Tiang’s son. Dr. Yap. I’ll try to check whether got such a power Dr.
