she suddenly stumbled and collapsed.
Two tragic incidents occurred in India during two separate weddings where a bride and a 23-year-old guest had fatal heart attacks.
On December 4, 2022, a bride named Shivangi was set to get married in Uttar Pradesh’s Lucknow.
She walked to the stage and seemed fine but after exchanging garlands with the groom, she felt dizzy and collapsed.
The young woman was rushed to the hospital, however, she died by the time she arrived.
According to the doctor, Shivangi suffered a fatal heart attack.
While she appeared fine, it is reported that her health was not the best in the days leading up to the wedding.
She had a fever and went to the doctor.
The doctor told her that her blood pressure was low.
She was given medicine and her blood pressure returned to normal prior to her wedding.
But on her wedding day, Shivangi suffered a heart attack and tragically passed away.
In a separate incident, a 23-year-old woman died at her friend’s wedding after suffering a heart attack.
The incident happened on November 25, 2022, in the city of Udupi, Karnataka.
The young woman, named Josna Cotha, had been dancing with other guests.
But as guests watched, she suddenly stumbled and collapsed.
Josna was taken to hospital and later died.
It was reported that she suffered a heart attack.
These are two instances of young people having fatal heart attacks and it has led to it trending on Twitter.
Social media users have been sharing instances of young, seemingly healthy people collapsing due to heart attacks.
According to reports, the number of heart attacks in India has spiked.
In recent years, heart attack-related deaths among individuals aged 35-50 has increased in the country.
A report by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) said that cardiovascular ailments account for nearly 17% of all deaths in India. On average, around 10 million people die in India every year.
The report stated: “The occurrence of heart-related issues has increased by more than 50% from 1990 to 2016.
“Another worrying trend in India is that heart attack incidents are rapidly increasing among youths (aged between 25-40).
“This is happening because of the unhealthy lifestyle habits among young adults.”
This has led to some people theorising what they believe might be behind the increase in heart attacks.
One theory circulating on Twitter is that the Covid-19 vaccine may be the reason, even though there is no scientific proof or evidence.
Journalist Akanksha Arora tweeted about the theory. She wrote:
“#heartattack trends on Twitter after cases in India see a massive spike. People are losing their lives to it.
“The worst part – there are no signs or symptoms. The reason, however, is still unknown. Many are speculating if this has anything to do with Covid-19 vaccine.
“What are the odds? A vaccine usually takes 5+ years to develop with at least 2 years of testing.
“Here, it took a few months to develop a vaccine for a newly emerged disease, nobody had the basic knowledge of.”
“In no way I’m implying that this is the reason but it does need an investigation. People deserve to know better, it can save lives.”
The increase in heart attacks in India has prompted concern and it has led to the belief that it is due to the Covid-19 vaccine.
And while many people believe this is the case, there is no proof.
