RIP Alien Huang

Taiwanese singer-actor Alien Huang was found dead in his Taipei apartment on Wednesday after what is believed to have been a freak accident.

Huang, who is best-known for co-hosting Taiwan’s long-running TV variety show 100% Entertainment with singer Show Lo, was discovered lying unresponsive with head injuries outside his bathroom by his father.

Taiwanese media reports said Huang was wearing a top but no underwear at the time, and the bathtub was filled with water, leading paramedics to believe that he died after slipping on the floor.

The cause of Alien Huang's sudden death was revealed to be an aortic dissection, said his manager Dino on Friday (Sep 18) to reporters.

The life-threatening condition occurs when the inner layer of the aorta (the large blood vessel in the heart) tears, according to the Mayo Clinic. When that happens, the blood-filled aorta ruptures. The website noted that an aortic dissection is often fatal but relatively uncommon.

Chronic high blood pressure may stress the aortic tissue, making it susceptible to tearing, noted the Mayo Clinic website. However, Dino said that the 36-year-old had no prior cardiovascular diseases and appeared to be in good health during his medical check-ups.

Speculations that Huang’s death at home was a freak accident were dispelled by the autopsy report, which did not uncover external injuries.

The popular host-actor's three-day wake reportedly started today, according to Taiwanese media reports. His body was brought to the funeral parlour Lung Yen Mourning Hall in the Banqiao district yesterday at 1.34pm, with the star’s father and younger sister arriving shortly after.

The wake is open only to Huang’s relatives, friends and colleagues. For fans, his label Rock Records said that they are in the midst of planning a memorial concert, with more details to come.
