It is not the number of heart attacks but the severity of the attack, the promptness of treatment, and the degree of recovery that would most determine death. One person may have a series of small attacks and recover well someone else may have one major attack and be dead in seconds. If there is a question as to the health of your heart or that of someone you care about or if someone is claiming heart attacks and you question it a doctor visit is in order. Even if someone has faked before one never knows when it could be real so if they claim the symptoms of a heart attack dial 911.
