Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd., discounted reports Tuesday that its founder and chairman, Morris Chang, was recovering from a fall at his home’s swimming pool in Hawaii.

Chang, 85, is one of Taiwan’s highest-profile business leaders, and is often consulted by the media to speak on economic or political issues.

Chinese-language Next TV reported on Tuesday that he had fallen near his swimming pool at his Hawaii home and suffered an injury near his eyes. Preparations were being made to transfer the businessman to Taiwan for further medical care, the report said.

The accident was the reason why Chang did not appear at a dinner hosted by Taiwan’s chief representative in Hawaii, Wallace Chow, on January 30, the TV station reported.
