Shortness of breath, vomiting, sweating, foaming at mouth, bloating. CPR done by paramedics. Cause of death heart attack?

My sister died suddenly. She was having shortness of breath, vomiting , sweating. She collapsed and then had foam from the mouth. We have no official cod at this time, not even a preliminary. CPR was done by paramedics all the way to the hospital. (10 mins). In the space of 40 minutes, she had become very bloated and we have no idea why. That occurred between her house and them calling it. What would cause those symptoms ( Heart attack?) and also cause her to bloat so quickly?

Thanks for writing to us.
The cause of death is difficult to determine without a physical examination. Right now the best way to find out the cause is to wait for her postmortem examination. There are many things which need to be evaluated before commenting on the cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
