North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il died from a heart attack sparked by a “fit of rage” over a shoddy construction at a hydroelectric power plant, a South Korea newspaper is reporting.
According to the report, the late North Korea leader died shortly after being briefed about a leak at the plant.
“After being briefed about the leak, Kim Jong-il lambasted officials and ordered them to repair it,” the anonymous source told ChosunMedia. “He rushed to make an on-site inspection of the facility unable to contain his anger and died suddenly.”
North Korea announced on Dec. 19, 2011 he died of a heart attack caused by “stress and overwork” while on his way to a field inspection.
The Huichon power plant was one of the poster projects of the reclusive state’s hopes to become a “powerful and prosperous nation,” according to the report.
