Murtaza Hassan Bangash, a 58-year-old Pakistani taekwondo referee who is in Da Nang to officiate at the 2024 Asian Taekwondo Championships, suffered an acute myocardial infarction but was saved by coronary stent placement, Da Nang Family Hospital said on Thursday.

The referee suffered from left chest and shoulder pain, shortness of breath, and sweating at the time he was hospitalized.

He was rushed to Da Nang Family Hospital by his Vietnamese colleagues.

He was diagnosed with an acute myocardial infarction while he was suffering underlying illnesses of high blood pressure and dyslipidemia.

The hospital held an urgent consultation with the Da Nang Department of Health and the Pakistani Embassy in Vietnam to work out the optimal treatment regime.

After a week of treatment, he has recovered and has been ready to fly back to Pakistan.
