TVB veteran actor Chun Wong, now 60, had a brush with death on his birthday the past Saturday July 12th, 2008 when he fell overboard on a cruise back to Hong Kong from Cheung Chau Island. Chun was reportedly drunk after celebrating his birthday with friends and fell off the deck accidentally. Chun was in critical condition at one point as water had to be drained from his lungs but is now in stable condition at Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Hong Kong.
Chun Wong is a long-time TVB actor and played numerous supporting characters. He’s probably best known for his role in the 1982 Jin Yong adaptation of “Legend of the Condor Heroes” as the impish Zhou Ba Tong.
