die from a heart attack during a dobutamine stress test

Has anyone had a family member die from a heart attack during a dobutamine stress test? My father died in 2005 during a doubutamine stress test. It s an non-invasive test used to eval CAD ( coronary artery disease ) for people who can t exercise on a treadmill. There is only a 1% chance of the test actually causing a heart attack that results in death. I just want to know if someone else has had this experience?

I used to assist with the stress tests at a hospital that I worked and I have never seen that happen. That is very rare, but I'm sure it makes it no less bearable for you. I'm sorry for your loss.
