Veteran TVB artist Raymond Tsang Sau Ming yesterday passed away in Guangzhou at the age of 58.

Tsang Sau Ming two nights ago suddenly fainted while performing in Guangzhou, despite the emergency medical team's effort he passed away. Fellow artist Cheng Ka Sang who went with him said that he, Tsang Sau Mng and others two days ago went to perform in Guangzhou. On the way they were still talking and laughing without nothing appearing to be unusual. During the concert, he performed first, then he introduced Tsang Sau Ming. After performing a part he suddenly fainted. He immediately rushed to the stage with the drive and carried Tsang backstage. The emergency medical team arrived very quickly and performed CPR and emergency treatment but Tsang was unconscious throughout. Finally their effort was ineffective and he passed away. Cheng Ka Sang felt that Tsang passed so suddenly probably due to his heart problem.

You even drove me home and we were chatting and laughing, you even told me to hurry up and buy a car......I thought you were already all better, why can it be so sudden......it's very hard to accept, very hard to take......Sau Ming, RIP......" His 13th TVB artist training class classmate Brian Wong Chak Fung posted on facebook, "Classmate Sau Ming! Amitabha! May you reach Nirvana soon."
