Naked hospital worker dies of heart attack while watching porn on his laptop

A hospital worker suffered a fatal heart attack while watching porn on his laptop in New York.

The 48-year-old man, who has not been named, was found dead at North Central Bronx Hospital on Tuesday morning.

Police sources told the New York Post a colleague found the man dead with his laptop open and porn playing on it.

He was naked and had apparently been pleasuring himself at the time.

In 2008 Chris Nicholls, 23, died in Croydon, England, from a heart attack while watching porn.

Mr Nicholls, who was born with a heart abnormality, died just weeks after open-heart surgery.

His mother Clare Else was reported in the Croydon Advertiser telling an inquest: 'Christopher was watching a blue movie when I found him.

'I said to my husband 'I know what's happened. It's got to be a rush of adrenaline because he's got excited'.'

There is a widely held belief among medical researchers that sexual activity can bring on a heart attack among those who are over 50 or overweight.
