Praying for Yasmin Ahmad’s recoveryPosted: July 24, 2009
From Malaysian Insider HERE:
PETALING JAYA, July 23 – Filmmaker Yasmin Ahmad is in critical but stable condition after underging emergency surgery at Damansara Specialist Hospital here following a stroke.She collapsed earlier this afternoon while presenting a working paper at Sri Pentas, the headquarters of the TV3 television station.
Bernama quoted her brother-in-law, Datuk Dr Zakaria Zahari, as saying that Yasmin had suffered a stroke and haemorrhaging in the brain.
“Her heart is being supported by drugs to control blood pressure … the next few hours are extremely important but she is now stable even though she is still unconscious,” he said.
She’s one of my favourite Malaysian directors so far. I hope Kak Yasmin has a speedy recovery.
