A 49-year-old man was found dead in a Flushing karaoke bar late Saturday night after he dozed off and never woke up, police said.

Jimmy Yu, of Flushing, who was a patron of Alibarbar, at 41-06 College Point Blvd,, fell asleep and could not be roused, according to cops.

Authorities responded to a 9-1-1 call at around 11:20 p.m. and declared Yu dead at the scene, the NYPD said.

Police said Yu’s death appeared to be from natural causes, but officials were waiting for the medical examiner’s office to confirm the cause and manner of death.
