Wang Zhendong, a 41-year-old occupational therapist, fainted during barbell gravity training at the "24/7 Fitness" gym at Tianping Mall in Sheung Shui last Tuesday (27th). He died 6 days later.

One week after the incident, the fitness room involved turned a deaf ear to media inquiries and has not responded to any questions so far.

Caritas Hong Kong Rehabilitation Service responded to the "Hong Kong 01" inquiry, stating that Wang Zhendong served as a first-level occupational therapist before his death.

It is reported that Wang Zhendong had been vaccinated with Fubitai vaccine. Caritas stated that no employees of any grade were required to be vaccinated against the new crown. The employees decided whether to vaccinate or not according to their personal circumstances and wishes.

The 24-hour "24/7 Fitness" fitness room in Tianping Shopping Mall in Sheung Shui suffered a coma accident with a customer last Tuesday (27th). Wang Zhendong, a 41-year-old injured, was hospitalized and died 6 days later.

Looking at the information, Wang graduated from the Chinese University of Hong Kong with a master's degree in health sciences. Before his death, he worked as a first-level occupational therapist at Caritas Hong Kong Rehabilitation Services, providing occupational therapy services for people with intellectual disabilities, autism and physical disabilities.

A few minutes later, other customers found out and reported the crime

According to the scene, Wang Zhendong opened the door with facial recognition in the early hours of last Tuesday morning and went to the Shang site to exercise alone.

The fitness room has no staff on duty at this time, and only relies on closed-circuit television to connect to the head office to monitor the situation in the venue. There are other customers in the same venue.

At the time of the incident, Wang was performing weight training with a barbell in the fitness room. During this time, he was suspected of being pressed by the barbell to his chest. A few minutes later, other guests discovered that he was in a coma near the weight training equipment of the "Smif Machine".

The guests immediately reported the case, and the ambulancemen arrived at the scene and sent Wang to the North District Hospital for rescue. His condition has been critical. He was certified dead at 12:41 noon on Sunday (2nd) 6 days after the rescue.

On the day of the incident, many media asked at the scene. "Hong Kong 01" also inquired with the "24/7 Fitness" fitness room via email and telephone to find out whether there were staff on duty at the time of the incident and whether the venue provided safety measures or guidelines. As well as accidents, etc., the staff only indicated that they would wait for a reply from the head office.

However, a week after the incident, the fitness room in question turned a deaf ear to media inquiries, and has not responded yet.

"Hong Kong 01" today (4th) asked the fitness room involved in the incident again and is awaiting a response.

Insurance industry: Liability insurance can be purchased in places

Luo Shaoxiong, president of the International Professional Insurance Consulting Association, said that general premises can voluntarily purchase liability insurance such as third-party casualty insurance or property insurance, and when an accident occurs, the complainant can claim compensation.

However, even if you buy insurance at the venue, you need to provide adequate safety instructions. "There is a chance that someone feels that you are negligent and an accident occurs."
