Bruce Lee's death
At 19:30 hrs that evening Bruce complained of having a headache. Betty gave him one of her own pain killers (Equagesic), that she had been prescribed from her doctor. Bruce went to lie down for a while on her bed.
Most probably was Bruce hyper sensitive to the ingredients Equagesic, Doloxene and Dilantin that are found in the pain killers. He used the medicine Doloxene after he had back injury during his training in 1970.

Later Lee complained of a headache, and Ting gave him an analgesic (painkiller), Equagesic, which contained both aspirin and the muscle relaxant meprobamate. Around 7:30 pm, he went to lie down for a nap. When Lee did not turn up for dinner, Chow came to the apartment but could not wake Lee up. A doctor was summoned, who spent ten minutes attempting to revive him before sending him by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Lee was dead by the time he reached the hospital.
