Sudden death is embarrassing. A man in Singapore slept on his stomach at a table in a food court for a day, during which time people came and went, and no one noticed anything different. At night, when the cleaners were washing the floor, they saw the man was still asleep and tried to wake him up, only to find that the man had already passed away. For this, the cleaning worker blamed himself: “If I had called him earlier, I might have been rescued.”

Based on local media reports, the incident happened at the North Bridge Market and Cooked Food Center in Singapore. A vendor said that the man came in at about 3:00 am on Sunday (19th). When I came to open the stall at 3 o’clock in the morning, I saw him lying there; when I came in the morning, I also saw a bowl of noodles on his table.”
Liu Zhenguang, a 66-year-old cleaner, found the man lying on the table when he went to work at 9:00 in the morning. There are often elderly or drunk people lying on chairs or lying on the table to sleep, so everyone is used to it. Liu Zhenguang said that because drunken people sometimes make a lot of noise after being woken up, he usually doesn’t shake the other party up.
Until 8 o’clock in the evening, when Liu Zhenguang was about to wash the floor, he found that the man was still lying on the table without moving. After being reminded by the customer, he went to wake up the other party. Unexpectedly, he pushed and called for 3 minutes, but the other party did not respond, and felt that something was wrong. Xia hurriedly called the police for help, “At that time, the operator asked me to check whether he was breathing. I found that his lower abdomen was hard, and he seemed to be out of breath.”
After the medical staff arrived at the scene, they confirmed that the man had passed away, and Liu Zhenguang also blamed himself for this. “I feel a little guilty. If I had called him earlier, maybe he was still awake and could be rescued.” The police arrived at the scene to investigate About 4 hours later, the body was not removed until 11:00 pm. The police said that the 56-year-old man was pronounced dead by medical staff at the scene, and preliminary investigations showed that there was no crime in the case.
Doctor: Sudden death is mostly related to heart disease
Sudden death seems impossible to prevent, but in fact there are traces to be found. Gao Yaojun, a Hong Kong cardiologist, once interviewed by “Sky Post” pointed out that most of the sudden death cases are related to heart disease, and the cause of most sudden death is acute myocardial infarction. At the onset of the disease, the “golden emergency time” is usually within 5 minutes. The longer the heart stops, the higher the mortality rate.

In addition, most heart disease patients are more likely to develop diseases in winter, because the blood vessels will constrict in winter, resulting in increased vascular resistance and increased blood pressure, increasing the load on the heart. Dr. Gao said that some patients may experience dizziness, fainting, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, etc., but there are also patients who have symptoms without warning. Therefore, he recommends regular physical examinations to understand their physical conditions:
