KUALA LUMPUR: Veteran actor Datuk Jalaluddin Hassan was rushed to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital this morning when he appeared ill and out of breath.

He had just completed filming TV AlHijrah’s talk show Assalamualaikum at the TV channel’s headquarters located at Kompleks Pusat Islam, Jalan Perdana here.

“He drove to the TV station by himself and it was about 10.30am when he said he wanted to return home,” said his son-in law Mohd Hafiz Mohd Seth to Harian Metro.

“While walking towards his car, however, he suddenly experienced shortness of breath so he managed to make a telephone call to one of his children, who immediately called for an ambulance,” he said.

Hafiz added that his father-in-law is currently being treated at HKL’s emergency ward as his family wait for further report from his doctor.

The esteemed actor was invited as guest of the talk show to share his experiences and tips in building a happy and stable family.
