my x g/fs brother only 19yrs old. him and i were still friends even though his sister and i weren't together. he was at a concert ... friends said he smoked alot of pot and was jumping all around sweating, and getting way too excited. he then passed out and stopped breathing. we later realized it was a heart-attack. 19yrs old! even though this has nothing to do with us bikerz...i just thought i'd share it with you. if you know friends and/or family that are a bit over weight... help them out. i never thought a 19yr old could have a heart-attack. maybe the heart-attack was caused by smoking weed?...i doubt it but still. he's gone and it really sucks. everyone be safe, ride safe and live life to its fullest. thanks

dude, sorry for your loss. its never easy. 19 yrs old and overweight shouldn't lead to a heart attack unless he was severly overweight. I'm 30 and overweight and I do more strenuous stuff than i probably should but I know when to stop as well. and more often than not, your legs will give out from lack of stamina and you'll drop to the floor before your heart gives out. perhaps he was on X or something? its been known to cause exactly this kind of situation. no trying to say he was doing something he wasn't or anything like that but, that might be the real reason for the heart attack. were they going to do a toxicology report?

my condolences to his family during this difficult time and to you as well. head up and if you need to talk, we are always more then willing to listen.

ya, regardless, its sucks and I'm sure its hard as hell on his sister. best thing you can do is just be there for her and let her deal with this in her own time and in her own way. just be supportive and be the shoulder to lean on when she needs it cuz she most definitely will, especially around the holidays and stuff.

My condolences man. I can't see how him being overweight could have caused a heart attack at his young age. Heart attacks are caused by blocked arteries and he just wasn't around long enough to have blocked arteries. I'm betting it was some sort of chemical in his system or an undetected heart defect.

man that sucks to hear, my condolences to all who know him.

as for a heart attack at 19 it would take a heart defect and that amount of strain he was puttin on it by smokin and jumpin around. its becoming more common these days with all the stress out there. be safe people

RIP! sucks to hear of anyone passing on, especially that young.


He wasnt by chance into extacy or meth was he? Those are some nasty drugs, especially meth, and a heartattach is very common among them.
