The death of KK (Krishnakumar Kunnath) at the age of 53 came as a shocker to the entire nation. The talented singer was in Kolkata to perform at a college fest. He began feeling unwell while performing and soon after reaching his hotel, he collapsed. Doctors declared him ‘brought dead’ as he suffered a heart attack. The latest reports suggest that the demise of the singer was due to an underlying heart condition. It is also reported that KK was taking antacids as he believed he had digestion issues.
A doctor has now claimed that KK could have been saved. After completing the procedure, the doctor was quoted saying, “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 was 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 a stoppage of blood flow leading to cardiac arrest.”
The doctor further added that if KK was given CPR at the right time he could have been saved. He also told that the deceased took antacids as he possibly assumed that the pain was due to digestion issues.
KK passed away on the night of May 31. His mortal remains were brought to Mumbai the next evening and on June 3, he was cremated in Versova in the presence of family members and well-wishers.
