We are all aware that processed meats such as hot dogs can pose a health risk, but most of us never expect those harmful effects to be instantaneous.
A nine-year-old Turkish boy was enjoying a hot dog, but after taking a big bite he suddenly collapsed. People around him assumed he was choking, but it was much, much worse.
Thankfully, paramedics got to the scene in time to resuscitate the young lad before transporting him to the hospital. He was immediately admitted and doctors ran tests to determine what could have caused him to lose consciousness out of nowhere.
It turned out that the boy had suffered a cardiac arrest. However, it was what the doctors discovered about the cause of the heart attack that has this story going viral.
So what really happened?
