The death of a resident of the northern Israeli town of Kiryat Ata is being investigated, after he keeled over and suffered an apparent heart attack as police handed him a traffic ticket. The 64-year-old man died on the spot Saturday evening. His funeral was set for Monday. The man suffered the attack as he was speaking to a female traffic police officer, who stopped him for an alleged driving offense. The policewoman said that the man had shown no signs of panic, nor had he indicated that he had any health problems. The two talked as she wrote up the ticket. She then handed it him, and the man then fainted, and apparently died on the spot. The policewoman immediately summoned rescue teams, which arrived on the scene within minutes, and tried for 40 minutes to revive him but to no avail.

How much was the fine?
What did the cop look like?
Isn’t the frist and will not be the last time someone keels over on a traffic stop.
I can feel my arteries getting hard already...
The “dead before you hit the ground” type heart attack is much less common these days because of Omega-3 fish oil.
The AMA conducts huge, long term studies of doctors and nurses, about 30,000 each in this case, and discovered that those who ate fish once a week had at least a third lower incidence of that type of heart attack.
Statistically, this is huge, because the other types of heart attack at least give some warning, so have better outcomes.
I hate getting tickets also.
And you thought LAPD cops were bad.
Probably already having the heart attack when the police officer stopped him; maybe erratic driving caused the stop?
Men being men, he probably would have passed the chest pain/discomfort off as indigestion even if he thought something as wrong.
