The young copywriter died after suffering heart failure as a result of a combination of long hours and drinking too many energy drinks
INDONESIA — A young copywriter working for advertising agency Y&R in Jakarta has died as a result of overwork, according to reports.
Mita Diran, who joined Y&R just over a year and a half ago, passed away after suffering heart failure as a result of a combination of long hours and drinking too much Kratingdaeng, a strong energy drink, a colleague of hers has said.
Her father, Yani Sharizal, who works as an executive creative director at local agency Fortune, has said that his daughter had slipped into a coma after working continuously for three days, and that she had been working over the limit. The young copywriter’s last tweet read: “30 hours of working and still going strooong.”
