Gujarat teen suffers cardiac arrest while playing Garba, dies

PTC News Desk: In a tragic incident, a 17-year-old boy died after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest while playing Garba in Gujarat's Kapadvanj Kheda district. The incident took place on the sixth day of Navratri celebrations.

"A 17-year-old boy, Veer Shah, was playing Garba at the Garba ground in Kapadvanj when he complained of dizziness and became unresponsive. A team of volunteers at the scene immediately attended on him and performed a cardio-respiratory resuscitation. We monitored his vitals but found no pulse. There was no response and signs of respiration. He was given three cycles of Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We shifted him to a hospital by ambulance. However, he was declared dead at the hospital," Dr Aayush Patel, MD Medicine, said while sharing details of the incident.


As word of the 17-year-old's death spread, a pall of gloom descended on his village.

Ripal Shah, Veer's father, who was unaware of the incident, was informed of his son's death.

When tragedy struck, Ripal Shah and his wife were immersed in Navratri celebrations at a second Garba venue in Kapadwanj.

According to sources, his parents were in shock after learning of his death.

Between cries, an inconsolable Ripal Shah cautioned revellers, saying, "Be careful playing Garba, do not continue playing it without rest." I lost my child tonight and hope that no one else suffers the same tragedy."
