From The Guardian:

Michael Jackson, the American pop legend, died of a heart attack in a Los Angeles hospital last night, just weeks before he hoped to resurrect his four-decade long career with a series of sold-out shows in London.

Jackson was taken to the University of California at Los Angeles medical centre last night, and paramedics administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation in the ambulance. He did not regain consciousness and was reported dead about three hours later.

Earlier his father, Joe Jackson, had told the TMZ.com website: “He is not doing well.”

The site reported that a 911 call came in to emergency services at 12.21pm local time from his Holmby Hills home in Los Angeles. Once at the hospital, staff tried to resuscitate him but Jackson did not respond, the website said.

The website said his sister, La Toya, was seen running into the hospital sobbing.

本地居民为露宿马国客工送暖心包

上周起,就有不少马来西亚客工受到“锁国令”影响,只得手忙脚乱连夜赶回新加坡工作,由于过于仓促,有者无处可待而露宿街头,本地居民为他们送上一套“暖心露宿包”,令网民纷纷按赞。 自上周马来西亚锁国开始,不少马国居民越堤到我国来工作,然而却有人无处过夜,被迫露宿街头。 社交媒体上流传了一组照片和视频,有数十名在本地居住的人民,包括马国籍人民准备了暖心露宿包,连夜出动送给这些露宿人士。 暖心露宿包中,有一个睡袋、一套盥洗用品和一个充气枕头。 署名INa EliNa网友于本月20日,在脸书上发帖文指出,他们对于有舒适的地方过夜表示感恩,有人的遭遇比自己糟糕,因此他们谢谢新加坡给予的温暖照顾,而他们也要去帮助有需要的马国籍员工和无家可归的人士。 上传的视频中只见十余人,带着小孩搬运数车的大小箱子,穿过走廊,似乎朝向电梯走去。一组的照片中也可见到人们将大小箱子分别装入两至三辆车子中,然后不同的人们开始进行分发暖心露宿包,有的甚至只是放在已经睡着的露宿者身旁。 有关帖文也在Instagram群组sgfollowsall内传开,获得将近4000个赞。   View this post…
