Alot of things can cause you to go into a coma. And a heart attack is one of them. If you have a severe heart attack with a period of reduced blood flow to the brain this can cause coma. A number of other affects of poor blood flow to other organs can cause problems in the brain and coma. eg renal failure secondary to heart attack
