KUALA LUMPUR: A 63-year-old part-time professor of anthropology at Open University Malaysia collapsed and died while delivering a lecture at its campus in Jalan Tun Ismail yesterday.
Professor Dr Mohamed Yusoff Ismail was halfway through the anthropology class when he collapsed.
Dang Wangi police chief Assistant Commissioner Zainuddin Ahmad said Yusoff was rushed to Kuala Lumpur Hospital, but was pronounced dead on arrival at 10.30am.
He said the deceased's family, however, did not agree to a post-mortem examination, as they strongly suspected the 63-year-old had died from complications arising from diabetes.
A police report was lodged by Yusoff's son, Ahmad Mazlan, at the Dang Wangi police headquarters.
