Ha Ping Hospitalized After Falling At Home; Recovering Well

TVB veteran actress Ha Ping (夏萍), also known as Apple, was taken to a hospital after falling in her home on Saturday morning. But the 78-year-old is still very energetic, and assured the press that she is fine, expressing that she should be able to attend a TVB event on November 9. Joking with the doctors and nurses, Apple professed, “I’m already the best!”

After slipping and falling in her home on Saturday morning, Apple struggled in her home for over ten hours before a TVB manager called her to extend greetings. Upon knowing that she fell and is unable to move, the manager immediately contacted actor Leung Kin Ping (梁建平), the student of Apple’s husband, who told Apple to dial 999. Apple was immediately taken to a local hospital.

According to the results from her full body scans, Apple has not broken any bones in her body. However, Apple’s tailbone area is swollen, and she is currently seeing a physical therapist.

Leung Kin Ping said, “She still has to lie on a bed, so I am still quite worried.” How is Apple’s health? “Going through the common health concerns that the elderly have. She is a little diabetic. She doesn’t even know how she fell.”

Although Leung Kin Ping does not live with Apple, they contact each other everyday. Asking if he would be hiring a social worker or a home care nurse to take care of Apple, Leung Kin Ping said, “I’ll talk to her about it. It really depends on what she wants.”

Leung Kin Ping said Apple does have children, but he rarely hears her talk about them. “She doesn’t contact her family very much. Hopefully they’ll know about what happened to her through the news.”

Apple’s godson Gordon Lam (林家棟) is extremely worried about Apple. He said, “She lives at home alone. I once suggested her to live in a nursing home, but I would feel much better if we could hire someone to take care of her.”

      Glad she is OK! I like her but didn’t know she is that old already. Hopefully her children could take better care of her after this incident. Once an elderly person have a bad fall, it’s hard to recover so hopefully she will really be OK.

      Hope she has a speedy recovery.

      Am I missing something? Why didn’t the TVB mgt call 999??? Instead they called another person who then called the emergency line??? How irresponsible. The mgt probably called to ck up on her bc she didn’t show up to work lol. Where’s her husband in all of this? Assuming he’s still alive bc the article didn’t say ‘late’ husband. ..

        @jjwong I had the same feeling. Why didn’t Apple dial 999 herself, or even the one who called Apple to call 999 in the first place? If it was a heart attack, Apple would have passed away already after waiting for so long.

        @jjwong There are actually some errors with the translation. First, her husband passed away back in the early 90s, so that’s why there’s no husband in the picture (the original article in Chinese does mention “late husband”). Second, it was NOT TVB management who called. The person who called Apple Jeh was a TVB actor who is also her neighbor – when he found out she had fallen, he went and got Leung Kin Ping (her husband’s apprentice-student) and went over to check on her…turns out she had actually fallen several days ago and was fine at that time, but they insisted she go to the hospital to make sure everything was ok. TVB management didn’t find out until afterwards when she was already in the hospital.

      Rather worrisome but she looks fine. She lives alone? Children? How come got god children to supposedly care for her but not her own family?

        @funnlim I recall reading somewhere that she and her late husband didn’t have any children but who knows…she does have god-children though. Not surprised that she insists on living alone, as she does have a strong personality and is the type who doesn’t like to bother other people– when she had fallen, she was actually on the ground for seve ral hours, but after she was able to get back up and everything seemed ok, she just went about her business. It wasn’t until her neighbor (the unnamed TVB actor) called and they talked awhile that she said she had fallen…she even didn’t want to go to the hospital but he and Leung Kin Ping persuaded her to…

        I’m also glad that she is ok though.
