Yes. Doctors would have dove everything possible to keep him alive for fear of being wacked themselves if they failed.
According to the news story he was in the bathroom when it happened, his son found him and eventually called the front desk. Hotel workers than came to the room and said workers tried to revive him. When that failed then and only then was he taken to the hospital.
Have you ever tried to mail a letter over there, Robin? The mail system is non-existent. It takes two weeks!
No, if you have a massive heart attack even in a hospital or in front of a doctor when it's your time to go you are done.
They couldn't save Chris farley
Reports are that he was alive in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, have to suspect the internal damage was too severe to be helped.
In the States he might have made it to life support, but it probably would have been very ugly.
Like Gigi Cestone?
Jeez, Gandolfini's son is 13. . . .
depends on the cause of the attack. Bathroom indicates he was either taking a massive dump or doing a line. Both of those would have killed him in the USA too
The following is the summary of Dr Sikirov's article "Cardio-vascular Events at Defecation: Are They Unavoidable?" [Medical Hypotheses, Jul 1990; 32(3):231-3]:
"Heart attacks which occur during defecation are, in many cases, the result of using the (unnatural) sitting posture for waste elimination.
"Excessive straining, through the use of repeated Valsalva Maneuvers, is needed for emptying the bowels in the sitting position. The Valsalva Maneuver adversely affects the cardio-vascular system, and can cause fainting and death.
"The cardio-vascular system of a healthy man can cope with intensive and repeated straining on a sitting toilet. But with a weakened vascular system, straining on a sitting toilet may result in fainting or even death.
"By squatting for waste elimination, the straining required, if any, is much reduced, which would help prevent many of these tragic (heart attack) cases."
Okay, but how the hell do you squat to defecate in a standard bathroom? Lay down a wee-wee pad on the floor? Build a small squatting tower above the toilet?
I was thinking the same thing as I read it. I had posted the islamic rules to shitting before. My daughter read it and said she had read studies that proved they were right, squatting is much faster, cleaner, and healthier than sitting. In france, all they had in the restaurants was a hole in the floor with a hand rail on the wall. I never tried it but it did make pissing a lot more fun
If he'd been reading Sarno's book on the shitter he'd be just fine.
they make a device called natures table hat goes over the toilet so u can squat
You can just lean forward on the stool and raise your feet so just the toes are touching.
So Ive heard, of course Im not a huge fat fuck so I have no problems shitting.
Fuck.... I'm on my third shit of the day!!!
Nobody has ever died from a heart attack in the U.S.
Thanks to Vashier for rescuing this thread from the shitter.
There was actually a Sopranos episode where a capo died on the toilet from straining too hard while taking a dump. They found him slumped over in the bathroom and eventually Tony replaced the dead capo with Ralph. Very weird if Gandolfini died the same way....
