25/05/2021

Her name was Nueng Pimporn, an influencer from Bangkok, Thailand.

One day at her house's kitchen, Pimporn was live on social media, to stream her cooking activity. Pimporn was known as a chef, and had been providing online cooking classes to her followers.

But just two minutes into the video, the woman who just simmered her cooking started to look pale.

Despite that, she continued streaming.

She made it seem like nothing happened, and continued talking and even laughing in front of the camera.

That, until she lost consciousness and collapsed.

Nueng Pimporn who was wearing a white overall and a pink apron, fell to her stove, head first, before landing on the floor.

Her husband who heard something out of the ordinary from the kitchen, rushed to the scene and saw his wife right there on the kitchen floor.

He dragged his wife out of the kitchen, and then rushed her to the hospital, where she was declared dead on arrival.

It was reported that the 40-year-old woman was a teacher, who usually likes to open live broadcasts to interact with her fans.

She had an enlarged heart, and the official cause of death is a myocardial infarction, which is a heart attack caused by the irreversible death (necrosis) of heart muscle secondary to prolonged lack of oxygen supply.

Family members said that she did not have any illnesses during her lifetime, and that she usually looks very healthy.

Because of the rare incident, in which she died while livestreaming, and also because she was an influencer herself, the news spread rapidly.

While some publications said that her death was caused by a heart attack, others used the incident to spread fake news.

A number of websites and posts on social media networks suggested that she died because she was vaccinated for 'COVID-19' coronavirus.

"Vaxxed cooking teacher drops dead live on stream graphic warning," wrote one of the posts.

Following the spread of the fake news, her family members tried to straighten things up, and said that Pimporn died because of a heart attack, and was nothing related to COVID-19 or its vaccine.

As a matter of fact, Pimporn had not yet received her dose of vaccine at the time.

The fake news was debunked by fact-checking organization in Thailand.

In a later post, another of her relative posted a separate post on Facebook, asking the public to stop sharing the video clip and images of Pimporn, and stop sharing the disinformation on the death of the vlogger, saying that family was still struggling to cope with Pimporn’s passing.
