Sacred Heart Sarabha Nagar class V girl Harshita Bansal dies of probable heart attack

The Hush Post: In a rare and a shockingly unfortunate incident,  a Class V student of Sacred Heart Convent School, Sarabha Nagar, Ludhiana, Harshita Bansal died on Wednesday evening.

Ten-year-old Harishita reached home from school yesterday, played, did her homework after which her mother asked her to go to sleep for an hour at about 5pm.

After sleep, she was supposed to go for her dance class. However, when her mother tried to wake her up at about 6 pm for a dance class, she would normally attend, Harshita wouldn’t respond. When she was taken to the doctor, he said that she had already expired at least half-an-hour ago.

Her brother studies in Class X in the same school, while another of her siblings died of diarrhoea when he was one-year-old, which was before Harshita was born. Her father is a businessman and the  family lives in Phase 1, Dugri.

As the school turned up for the morning assembly, Harshita’s classmates to whom she had said goodbye yesterday wouldn’t believe that Harishita was no more. All were shocked to know that their dearest friend Harshita will never be able to be with them again as children, began remembering her birthday party she had thrown up last year. Her classmates wrote messages for Harshita which were displayed on the class display board.

Dr Tilak Suvarna, Senior Interventional Cardiologist, Head Department of Cardiology, Asian Heart Institute, Mumbai says, even kids can suffer a heart attack, but rarely. And if they suffer, either there is a congenital deformity or a genetic predisposition with accumulation of high cholesterol.
