Earlier in June, Steven Ma (馬浚偉) suffered two nose fractures while filming new TVB drama, Property Protector <守業者>. In another mishap, Steven was hospitalized due to his heart condition and over-exertion in the hot weather. After a day of rest, he was back at work.
Originally scheduled to attend a TVB conference in Beijing, Steven’s heart condition suddenly took a turn for the worse due to the hectic filming and blazing temperatures in Guangdong’s Yingde and Xijiao cities. He was immediately sent to the hospital where he was administered three packets of saline water. Earlier, Steven revealed that he was suffering from a chronic heart condition where two nerves in his heart behave abnormally when they come into contact, resulting in his heart to beat rapidly, reaching over 170 beats per minute at a time. As a result, he had to take medication regularly.
Merely after a day of rest, Steven was back at work after his hospitalization. Understanding that they have to rush the filming, Steven preferred to go back to work to make sure filming is on schedule.
While filming on location, the crew encountered a flood resulting from a typhoon while filming a war scene near a dam. With only five minutes to vacate from the area, Steven remarked that it was a terrifying experience. He recounted, “Fortunately we already finished filming before the water drainage began. Producer Leung Choi Yuen (梁材遠) also thought it was a stroke of good luck.”
