Heart-op man dies watching porn

By JAMES CLOTHIER
Published: 31 Oct 2008

A YOUNG man born with a heart problem died while watching a porn film.

Chris Nicholls, 23, collapsed after getting over-excited as he viewed the blue movie in his bedroom, an inquest heard.

He died of a cardiac arrest weeks after having open-heart surgery.

His body was found by his mum Clare at the family home in Redhill, Surrey. At the inquest she asked pathologist Dr Mary Sheppard, who examined Chris after his death, whether the heart attack was brought on by the film.

She said: “Christopher was watching a blue movie when I found him.

“Later I told my husband, ‘I know what’s happened. It’s got to be a rush of adrenaline because he’s got excited.’ Could that have caused cardiac arrest?”

Dr Sheppard responded: “Any kind of excessive stress or excitement could have brought on serious erratic heartbeat. So, yes, that could have been a factor.”

Chris was born with a congenital heart defect which could never be completely cured.

He had open-heart surgery when he was 15 months old and again following a heart attack in April.

He also suffered from a form of autism. Clare hit out at London’s Royal Brompton Hospital, where Chris had his latest operation.

She said: “No one there told me how imminent death could be. When I asked for guidelines on how to care for Chris at home they looked at me like I was mad.”

A natural causes verdict was recorded at the inquest in Woking, Surrey.

Sorry to say but I've wondered about that myself....

I've had 2 open heart surgeries... 1st was in '92 when I was almost 12, had my aortic valve replaced.... then the 2nd was in '06, I had a 7" diameter anyurism on my ascending aorta.... that should have killed me.. I'll just say on that I've got someone watching over me...:innocent:

Now that I'm 28 and I have a daughter thats almost 2, I can't go yet.....
