“He Sang Until He Died”-Singer KK Is No More.
The demise of Bollywood singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, has saddened the entire nation. PM Narendra Modi, his fans and colleagues from the industry expressed grief and shock over his sudden demise. KK felt uneasy while performing at a concert in Kolkata. Post that, he was rushed to the hospital but he was declared brought dead by doctors.
The doctor has now revealed that the late singer had several heart blockages. The doctor even said that he could have been saved if CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) was given to him on time.
The doctor, who conducted his post-mortem, said that KK had prolonged cardiac problems that remained unaddressed. The doctor told PTI, “He had a major blockage in the left main coronary artery and small blockages in various other arteries and sub-arteries. Excessive excitement during the live show caused stoppage of blood flow leading to cardiac arrest that claimed his life. The vocalist had 80 per cent blockage in the left main coronary artery and small blockages in various other arteries and sub-arteries. None of the blockades were 100 per cent. During Tuesday’s performance, the singer was walking around and at times dancing with the crowd which created excessive excitement that caused stoppage of blood flow leading to cardiac arrest. As a result, KK fell unconscious and had a cardiac arrest. If CPR had been given immediately, the artiste could have been saved.”
Meanwhile, a lot of celebs were seen arriving at his Mumbai residence on Thursday to pay their last respects. Celebs like Javed Akhtar, Abhijeet Bhattacharya, Salim Merchant, Harshdeep Kaur, Shilpa Rao, Rahul Vaidya, Javed Ali and others were spotted outside his house.
