Tragic Deaths in Neighboring MP

In a recent incident in the neighboring state of Madhya Pradesh, a 17-year-old teenager died on Monday morning while running in the Science College sports ground in Ratlam. The teenager suddenly collapsed while running, and friends rushed him to the hospital, where doctors declared him dead. The family members requested no post-mortem. Doctors are considering it as a silent attack.

This marked the second death due to a sudden heart attack in Ratlam district in the last five days. The initial case occurred in Tal tehsil of the district. 

In Ratlam, Civil Surgeon Dr. MS Sagar mentioned that there has been a recent increase in heart attack cases among the youth, with no initial symptoms. Patients experience sudden pain relief, leading to unexpected deaths. Such cases are on the rise across the country, and conclusive statements are challenging to make at this point.
