KOTA KINABALU: Resource Development and Information Technology Minister Datuk Siringan Gubat is responding to treatment at the intensive care unit of Queen Elizabeth Hospital after he suffered a heart attack on Saturday.

He is in stable condition and showing signs of improving, his aide Larry Ralon said when contacted Monday.

According to Larry, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman visited Sirigan, who is Upko deputy president, and was briefed on his condition by the cardiologist at the hospital.

Also present was Upko acting president Datuk Seri Madius Tangau, who is Science Technology and Innovation Minister.

Larry said Musa also met Siringan’s wife Rozelind Gubat and other family members at the hospital.

Siringan, who is Paginatan assemblyman, suffered breathing difficulties and was coughing badly at around 8.20pm Saturday while he was with his family in Ranau town about 110km from here.

Family members rushed him to Ranau district hospital before he was transferred by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital here early Sunday.

Prior to the heart attack, Siringan had attended three functions in various parts of his constituency and in Ranau town.
