KUALA LUMPUR, May 14 — Malay Mail’s editor-in-chief Datuk Wong Sai Wan died this morning after being admitted to Subang Jaya Medical Centre for heart-related issues.

His son Wong Chee Mun confirmed to Malay Mail that he had suffered heart failure.

“He came into the hospital at 5.30am and was admitted to the emergency room at 6am. His heart stopped beating.

“They tried CPR on him but they couldn’t revive him,” Chee Mun told Malay Mail.

A wake will be held from 11am to 6pm on May 15 and 16 at Xiao En Centre on 1 Jalan Kuari in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.

Due to current movement control order (MCO) standard operating procedures (SOP), only 50 people will be allowed at one time.

However, there will be a waiting area should those present exceed the permitted number.

A funeral service is set for 10am on May 17, with a restriction of 15 people.
