A 22-year-old man reportedly suffered a sudden cardiac arrest after watching a cricket match and died in Hyderabad, India on Sunday, Sept. 25.

The deceased man, a 22-year-old identified only as Abhijit, a recent engineering graduate, reportedly fell asleep while he was watching the India-Australia T20 cricket match with his family. When Abhijit woke up hours later, he complained of severe chest pain, the New Indian Express reported.

Following this, Abhijit's family members immediately rushed him to Apollo Hospital in Hyderguda for treatment. However, the doctors at the facility declared him dead upon arrival.

Abhijit was the son of Chandrashekhar Reddy, MD of Telangana State Medical Services Infrastructure Development Corporation. Abhijit had recently secured a job in a Dubai-based oil company with a salary package of around US$61,402 (50,00,000 Indian Rupees) per annum and was preparing to join the company next month, the Siasat Daily reported.

According to the deceased man's family members, Abhijit was healthy and never had any major health issues.

In a similar but unrelated incident, a 28-year-old man reportedly died of a cardiac arrest while he was having sexual intercourse with his girlfriend in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India on Sunday, July 3, Latin Times reported.

The deceased, identified as Ajay Parteki, 28, and his 23-year-old girlfriend met each other at a hotel located in Saoner, Nagpur on Sunday, July 3. They arrived at the lodge at around 4 in the evening and about half an hour later, while the couple was reportedly engaging in sexual intercourse, Parteki suddenly suffered a cardiac arrest and fell unconscious.

Parteki was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. However, physicians at the health facility declared Parteki dead upon arrival.

Parteki's autopsy report pointed to a possible heart attack as the reason for his death. Following this, the officers registered a case of accidental death and sent Parteki's blood sample to the lab for chemical analysis.

According to cardiologist Doctor Anand Sancheti, untreated coronary artery disease can prove to be fatal during strenuous activities like sex. During such physical activities, a greater amount of blood and oxygen is required by the heart and when the requirement is not met, it can lead to dire consequences such as death.
