In Surat, girl (13) dies of suspected heart attack in classroom | Surat News – Times of India

SURAT: A 13-year-old schoolgirl collapsed in the class and died of suspected heart attack in the city, further deepening the mystery shrouding the sudden deaths of young people across the state over the last few months.
The girl, Riddhi Mewada, was one of the twin sisters and both were studying in class 8 at Gitanjali School located in Godadara area.
Riddhi was sitting on the first bench in the middle row. While attending the last lecture at around 11:30am, she suddenly collapsed and fell down from the bench. The school staff called 108 emergency ambulance, but as she was not responding, they rushed her to a nearby private hospital in the car of one of the parents. The doctors there declared her dead on admission.
School director Parag Vaghadiya told TOI: “Her parents said that Riddhi had breakfast at home, and also had her lunch at the school. They told us that she had no serious illness and seldom fell ill.”
Riddhi’s father Mukesh Mewada is a textile trader and the family hails from Rajasthan. They took her to their native place for final rites.
“The postmortem of the body was done and we have registered a case of accidental death. The histopathology report will reveal the exact reason for the sudden death,” said JC Jadav, inspector, Godadara police station.
Students and teachers of the school plunged into mourning. On Wednesday, they paid a tearful homage to Riddhi and performed a pooja.
This is the seventh death of a youngster in the state since September 20 with six of these reported from Saurashtra cities of Rajkot, Jamnagar, Junagadh, and Morbi.
On September 25, a 19-year-old first-year engineering student died of a heart attack while practicing garba steps at a dance class in Jamnagar. A 24-year-old garba enthusiast in Junagadh had met the same fate on September 24.
While many blame severe Covid-19 infection which necessitated prolonged hospitalization, steroids, and vaccines, there is no such study or data to substantiate this hypothesis.
Cardiologists blame poor lifestyle and undetected underlying illnesses.
