No emergency was reported in their department. All three decided to go to dinner in turn. It was about 9 pm, according to our cross-checking, that the body of Shonasoodhun Runghen was found lying on the floor in the Operation Theater 1. Those present at the scene quickly called for reinforcements. Two doctors have responded immediately.

They carried him to another room to provide him first aid. Intubation was performed and heart massage did not work either. All means used to revive the nurse were unsuccessful. Death was found around 10 pm. The victim died of a myocardial infarction (heart attack).

The nursing staff of the hospital Dr. A.G. Jeetoo, especially colleagues around Shonasoodhun Runghen are in shock. Some bemoan the sudden disappearance of an outstanding colleague.
