A man’s lung collapsed after he attempted to belt out a high note during an intense karaoke session.
According to the Daily Mail, the 65-year-old man, known as Wang, sang ten high-pitched songs in a row before the incident. He said he didn’t hold back because he felt excited while singing his favourite songs…

However, Wang became breathless and started suffering from chest pain.
Doctors at a hospital’s emergency department found his lung had collapsed due to the pressure created in the chest from singing.
He told reporters: “I was very excited in the heat of the moment and after singing a few songs with very high notes, I found myself having breathing difficulties.”
He also added that he sung the same set of songs many times before so his symptoms were unusual. He decided to ignore the discomfort at that time, but the pain worsened after he went back home.
When he visited the emergency room the next day, tests including a chest X-ray revealed that the mishap occurred due to ‘the high lung pressure caused by singing high notes.’
Alamak! Scary nya… We hope that he is okay!
