Mediacorp actor Benjamin Tan’s 51-year-old mother has been on life support after slipping into a coma on July 4. The 27-year-old, who recently starred in Mandarin drama My Guardian Angels, told 8days.sg in an email interview that his mum was admitted to the Accident and Emergency department on the same day after experiencing blurry vision and giddiness when she got up to go to the bathroom.

According to Ben, the doctors told him that his mum had “developed a blood clot that is pressing against her brain stem”. She was unconscious when she was admitted and had to depend on life support machines to assist her with breathing, added Benjamin.
