This is the moment the CEO of a Chinese health company dies of a heart attack on stage after delaying having a pacemaker fitted so he could deliver a speech about healthy living and longevity.
According to local media, Chen Pei Wen of the Guangdong Zhongyi Health Technology Company, based in the south-eastern Chinese coastal province of Guangdong, died on stage of a sudden heart attack.

The CEO, whose age was not specified, reportedly underwent heart bypass surgery 20 years ago and planned to go to hospital after the speech to be fitted with a new pacemaker.
However, the health expert passed away hours before the appointment while delivering a speech about healthy living and longevity.
In the video footage, Chen is seen addressing the crowd on stage while holding a microphone.
He then turns and walks towards the centre of the stage, but energy appears to drain from his legs and he stumbles before accidentally head-butting the podium.
The health firm CEO then collapses on the ground as concerned helpers rush to his aid.
A company spokesperson confirmed that Chen was due to attend an appointment for a pacemaker hours after he collapsed and died on stage.
