Kim Jong Un may be dead or at the very least brain dead if alive, according to speculations going round, further reportd suggest him being in a “vegetative state” after he underwent heart surgery earlier this month.
A vice director of HKSTV Hong Kong Satellite Television, a Beijing-backed broadcast network in Hong Kong, claimed that Kim was dead, citing a “very solid source.” Her post on theChinese messaging app Weibo has been shared widely on social media, according to a report in the International Business Times.
Other unconfirmed reports, attributed to senior party sources in Beijing, said an operation to insert a stent went wrong because the surgeon’s hands were shaking so badly.
I would imagine anyone's hands to be shaky,considering the fear the North Korean dictator generates.
Curiously,no North Korean media has mentioned or reported anything about their leader's health or whereabouts, even though reports by other media have sparked international speculation about his well-being.
According to a Feuters report,The weekly Shukan Gendai reported on Friday that a Chinese medic sent to North Korea as part of a team to treat Kim believed a delay in a simple procedure left the leader severely ill.
The Chinese expert told the magazine that Jong Un clutched his chest and fell to the ground on a visit to the countryside earlier this month. A doctor accompanying Kim performed CPR and took him to a nearby hospital.
Kim, believed to be 36, needed a stent procedure, which calls for placing a tube into a congested blood vessel to allow blood to keep flowing to the heart, according to Shukan Gendai.
