How terrible. 20 years old is far too young to die. I never paid much attention to Anna Nicole, but I definitely feel sad for her. Having to bury your own child must be one of the worst heartbreaks anyone can go through.
What’s even more horrifying is that he apparently just had a massive heart attack right in front of her. Preliminary reports are that no drugs or alcohol were involved, just one of those freak young-person-has-heart-failure-out-of-the-blue deaths. I can’t even imagine.
It’s very sad and very spooky in a way. The saddest thing is, he was in the hospital visiting and someone might have saved him if it happened in some other way, like while they were awake and talking. I wonder if the new baby will make her sad.
While it’s possible for an otherwise healthy 20 year old person to have an “out of the blue” heart attack type death occur, given the context of being the son of someone whose lifestyle seemed to have revolved around being more of less continuously drunk or drugged up, I don’t think I’d be betting on natural causes as the cause of death. But… anything can happen.
I’m not a big Anna Nicole fan, but this is heartbreaking.
Personally, I’m wondering if he developed a blood clot in his leg during the plane flight and it traveled to his heart. The reason I say that is we have a co-worker who was on a plane trip and developed clots in her legs. She was put on strict bed rest and blood thinners and advised that if she flies again she is to wear compression stockings. Granted, she’s older than 20, but hey it could happen.
