Hong Kong veteran actor Wong Chun, who recently fell overboard, regained consciousness and is now in stable condition, an actor who was vacationing with Wong Chun in Cheung Chau Island was quoted as saying by a sina.com.cn's entertainment report.

Dickson Lee Ka Sing, the actor who was vacationing with Wong Chun, witnessed his fall into sea. Dickson Lee visited him at Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital in Hong Kong on Sunday afternoon. After the visit, Lee said Wong Chun is still in intensive care while the fluid is drained from his lungs.

Hong Kong-based Chinese language newspaper Wen Wei Po reports that Wong was at a banquet with his friends in Cheung Chau Island, and was drunk when he left. He accidentally stepped off the deck and fell into the water as he was preparing to cruise back to Hong Kong with his friends.

The report said he remained conscious during his rescue by mariners and firefighters, but fell into a coma at Cheung Chau hospital. He was in critical condition when flown in by a helicopter to Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital Sunday morning.

Wong Chun, 60, has played many parts in television series based on novels written by Louis Cha, a renowned kung fu writer. He is best known for playing the naughty old Zhou Botong in adaptations of Louis Cha's novel "The Legend of the Condor Heroes."
