Robert Rowen, MD: People Dropping Like Flies

I know you have seen deaths in the movies. Of course, these are acted. But, have you ever seen people actually keeling over and dropping dead for real?  I just saw a jaw dropping video that tore me up. Young people simply collapsing in the midst of talking or competing. You might want to take a look at this video. But I warn you, it is graphic and horrifying: People dropping like flies and smashing their heads on stoves, on the floor, desks, more. We don’t have the video of the airline captain who keeled over while piloting his jet. I presume it exists at Delta, according to information from a personal friend/patient, who is an airline captain.
