-He trained frmo 7am-9am, including stomach, flexibility, and running from 11am-12pm he would lift weights and cycle. Typical exercise for him consisted of running a distance of 6 miles in 15-45 minutes. On a stationary bike he would ride the equivalent of 10 miles.

According to Linda Emery, Lee met a Golden Harvest producer named Raymond Chow at 2pm to discuss the making of a movie called Game of Death. They worked until 4pm and then drove together to the home of Lee's colleague, a Taiwanese actress named Betty Ting Pei.
-Later on, Lee complained of a headache, and Ting gave him an analgesic, or painkiller called Equagesic. This contained both aspirin and a muscle relaxant called meprobamate. Around 7:30 pm, he went to lie down for a nap. When Lee didn't show up for dinner, Chow came to the apartment but could not wake up Lee. A doctor was called and he spent 10 minutes trying to revive him before eventually sending him by ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Lee was declared dead on arrival to the hospital.
-There were no visible external injuries; unfortunately, according to autopsy results, his brain had swollen from 1,400-1,575 grams(13% increase). He was only 32 years old. The only substance found in his system was the Equagesic given to him to relieve a headache. Chow stated later that Lee died from an allergic reaction to it.
