Hong Kong singer and Grasshopper member Edmond So had to be rushed to the hospital recently after suddenly collapsing at the “AXA Hong Kong Streetathon @ Kowloon East 2016” event.

As reported on On CC, the singer, who appeared alongside his group mates Calvin and Remus to host the launch of the event on 10 April, also participated in the 10k marathon before the incident occurred.

Wife Winnie Lau, who accompanied Edmond to the United Christian Hospital in Kwun Tong for further inspection, later assured that the singer is fine and thanked everybody for their concern.
In a later interview, Edmond revealed that he fainted due to a lack of proper preparation for the marathon.
“I didn’t eat anything in the morning before the event. I thought about buying something to eat there, but there was nothing to buy,” he said.
He also stated that he started feeling dizzy at around the eighth to ninth kilometre, and eventually collapsed. However, Edmond assured that he is now okay.
