Rajasthan: Young teacher suffers fatal heart attack in Kota while riding on bike

Young people are increasingly falling victim to heart attacks, striking them unexpectedly during their daily routines. A recent incident on Dadabari Main Road in Kota city, Rajasthan, underscored this concerning trend. 

Saurabh Saxena, a young teacher, suffered a fatal heart attack while riding his bike. Despite swift efforts by passersby to rush him to the hospital, the attending doctor pronounced him dead upon arrival.

Across the country and the state, there is a noticeable surge in reported cases of heart attacks, with the numbers rising since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Alarmingly, even individuals in their youth are succumbing to heart-related issues. In Madhya Pradesh, a young MBA student in his early 20s suffered a fatal heart attack while cooking in the kitchen.

Saurabh Saxena, a physics teacher at a coaching institute in Kunhadi Land Mark City, Kota, was on his way to work when the tragic incident occurred. After experiencing a heart attack while riding his bike, he managed to park safely before seeking help. 

Despite immediate transportation to the hospital, medical professionals declared him dead. Saxena, a resident of Mahavir Nagar Third in Kota, left behind a shocked family and colleagues at the coaching institute.

The news of Saxena's demise due to a heart attack has left his family and the coaching institute staff in disbelief. Such incidents, where individuals suffer heart attacks during routine activities, have become more commonplace after the pandemic. Instances include bus drivers experiencing attacks or individuals fatally tripping and falling while dancing.

Young doctor had died a day earlier

A day earlier, Dr. Nitin Pandey of Sawai Mansingh Hospital, Jaipur died of cardiac arrest. Dr. Pandey was a professor in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in the Medical College and had a keen interest in sports. He died after suffering an attack in Ratlam, Madhya Pradesh. He was with his family during winter vacation at his in-laws house in Ratlam.

Reports indicate a rise in heart attack cases during colder weather. Dr. Dilip Vijay, speaking to the media, explained that hormone levels tend to increase in winter, causing blood to thicken. This thickening, coupled with elevated blood pressure and narrowed arteries, heightens the risk of heart attacks. Doctors are cautioning against excessive exercise during winter months to mitigate these risks.
