Enuff bullshit already. What is causing all these relatively young men to have fatal heart attacks? Are they just unlucky or is it drugs or performance enhancers?

Jumping to conclusions aren't you? You know nothing about this guy. Maybe he was obese. Maybe he's had heart problems for a few years. Maybe, all sorts of possibilities.

This is 1 in a long line of sudden heart attacks ( not to mention suicide dives out of second and third floor windows)that have been reported in here and, while this guy may be genuine and so may many of the others its getting to the point of statistical improbability without a contributory factor somewhere.

No, it's due to a lack of a proper postmortem. (In some countries) postmortems are not necessary when it's clear that the heart has stopped.

One day in the future when proper procedures are in place to determine the real cause of death, I'm sure the number of deaths by heart attack will reduce.

Why did this 52 year old guy die? I have no idea and neither do you.

I agree with everything Username Taken said. This guy wasn't that young, he was 52 and a lot can happen to a person's constitution in a half century. The cases that bother me more, and I'm guessing other people, is when you have all these 25-32 year old guys dying of heart attacks. Twenty years ago people were dying of dizziness a whole lot, it gradually progressed to "wind" or "too much hot in body" and now "heart attack" is the most common prognosis. It's impossible to say what has happened to any of these people. The mind boggles.

Not knowing the deceased , not knowing his life style, but if, and that’s just IF, this guy has been living a Haram and/or Hedonistick lifestyle, 52 seems fair then, the thing is no one knows...
I actually don't give a flying fuck, furthermore nice to meet you all here! :thumb:

if the cause of death wasnt Murder, Suicide or Drowning, then the cause of death is always Heart Attack... its just the way things go here, no postmortems
