On October 28, Wu Bimei suddenly started experiencing severe headaches and vomiting, as reported by Sin Chew Daily.
After that, the 37-year-old was identified as having a cerebral aneurysm. This is a condition that can enlarge blood vessels and bleed into the surrounding brain tissue.
Wu was first admitted to Kuantan General Hospital and then sent for additional care to a Sungai Buloh neurology hospital. Regretfully, she suffered a heart attack during her treatment.
Wu’s heartbeat was recovered by cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), but oxygen deprivation led to Wu’s eventual brain death.

Wu may have saved the lives of six individuals when she donated a liver, two kidneys, and a pair of corneas, according to the Chinese Daily. The organ donation is said to take place on November 2 between 2am and 7am.
