What was the cause of my sisters death?

What was the cause of my sisters death? I was told it was her heart but can anyone tell me anything specific.? Sorry if my question doesn t make sense. Basically my sister just collapsed and died straight away. I have been told two different things by my parents. My step mum said it was down to her heart being weak. And my dad said it had something to do with her heart needing a rest and that they didn t catch it in time. Does anyone have any idea as to what exactly could have caused her death as I just want to know and have no idea as to what any of this means. I was also told that this problem presented itself as an everyday flu type symptoms. And the day before she felt ill. She is my step mothers daughter, and me and my other sister have been completly cut out of anything involving her. we wasnt even told when her funeral was. I doubt i d be allowed to look at the coroners report

There are many causes of sudden adult death. Far to many to go into here. Many are complicated so your parents may not be withholding the truth from you, simply explaining it to you the way they understand it. There is a wonderful organization, I haven't the website to hand but if you put sudden adult death into google it will come up, its something like SAD's. They have a detailed explanation of all the different causes of sudden death. I hope knowing helps you find some peace.
