Ming Kunpeng started working at ASM Pacific Technology, a longtime Apple chip supplier, when he was 19 years old. He was required to handle benzene on a daily basis, without adequate training or protective gear. In 2009, at age 22, Ming Kunpeng fell ill and was eventually diagnosed with leukemia. Much more time, tests, and effort finally proved Ming Kunpeng's illness was occupational in nature. Requests to ASM to pay for Ming Kunpeng’s treatment were responded to too late and did not cover the care he needed.
On December 28th 2013, despite the supportive efforts of his entire family to get him ongoing care and medication, Ming Kunpeng committed suicide by jumping from the roof of his building. His fight is one that is fought by thousands of benzene-poisoned leukemia patients. Read more about this case at Good Electronics.
