Has anyone else ever experienced someone passing away so sudden ?

Massive Heart Attack Has anyone ever had someone die from that ? My friend had heart problems and had suffered a heart attack before. Her family found her dead on Sunday laying on the couch. They believe she was there for a day and a half because she lived alone. When they found her, she was sitting on her couch slumped over. I blame myself for not being up there, I was suppose to be hanging out with her that weekend. My friends say if I was there , I couldn t have done anything if she dropped dead like that. If she would have been feeling bad, she would have called 911 herself, she has before. I feel guilty. Has anyone else ever experienced someone passing away so sudden ?

Since your friend had heart problems, she should not have lived alone. Heart disease is an umbrella term for a variety for different diseases affecting the heart. As of 2007, it is the leading cause of death in the United States, England, Canada and Wales, killing one person every 34 seconds in the United States alone The most common cause of heart disease is a narrowing of or blockage in the coronary arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle (coronary artery disease). Some heart diseases are present at birth (congenital heart disease). Other causes include: * Abnormal heart rhythm * Abnormal heart valve function * High blood pressure (hypertension) * Weakening of the heart's pumping ability, often caused by infection or toxins (cardiomyopathy)
