Kuala Lumpur – A Singaporean man was found dead in his car parked at a Petronas gas station in Kuala Lumpur after completing a 336 kilometre trip from Johor.

Based on a viral video uploaded in YouTube by a bystander commenting on the incident, the man was initially thought to have passed away due to suffocation from sleeping in a non-ventilated car.

The autopsy report, however, revealed that the 62-year-old died of a heart attack on May 20. The man was doing his friend a favour and drove for over three hours to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), reported AsiaOne.

After his trip to KLIA, the man immediately began his return trip to Johor but made a quick stop at a nearby petrol station.
