A Doctor who conducted KK’s autopsy revealed he could have been saved if CPR was given to him on time
Popular Bollywood singer Krishnakumar Kunnath, popularly known as KK, breathed his last on May 31 due to a massive cardiac arrest after a live performance in Kolkata. The singer was performing live on his blockbuster songs at Nazrul Mancha when he suddenly left unwell. KK was declared 'brought dead' by doctors. Now as per the latest reports, a doctor who conducted his autopsy revealed that KK had several heart blockages and he could have been saved if CPR was given on time.
The doctor revealed that KK died due to a massive cardiac arrest. He had prolonged cardiac problems that remained unaddressed. He 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 percent blockage in the left main coronary artery and small blockages in various other arteries and sub-arteries.
The doctor added, "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.”
KK’s funeral was held at Versova Hindu Cemetry on 2nd June. His son led the funeral procession, which was attended by KK’s fans and industry colleagues. Filmmaker Vishal Bharadwaj with his wife Rekha, Alka Yagnik, Shreya Ghoshal and others were spotted paying their final respects. The late singer was cremated at Mumbai's Versova Hindu Cemetery.
