Brittany Murphy’s death is no hoax. She died from a cardiac arrest on Sunday morning. She was only 32 years old. For months there have been rumors of celebrity death that usually start on Sundays. Unfortunately, this rumor came true for actress Brittany Murphy.
Usually, when someone who is young and in good health goes into cardiac arrest, it is because of some event or some foreign substance that enters the body and gets into the bloodstream. For example, a bullet can cause cardiac arrest – and a lot of bleeding. A traumatic event can cause a heart attack and be fatal. And, yes, drugs taken improperly can also result in cardiac arrest.We may never know just what caused Brittany Murphy to go into cardiac arrest, nor do we need to know. She is, sadly, dead!
It’s always tragic when someone so young dies, whether it be at home or on a battlefield thousands of miles away. It’s even more tragic if you ultimately learn that the death could have been prevented – either by a medical screening or an Act of Congress to stop all pointless and losing wars, like the two we are currently involved in now.
