ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON, a male passenger suffered a heart attack on Beijing’s Line 2 subway, and died about one hour later. China Daily writer Zhang Zhouxiang comments:

What happened on Beijing’s subway is the third high-profile death from a heart attack in 10 days, with the other two being actor Godfrey Gao and Xu Yong, a senior journalist at Xinhua News Agency.

Further, they are only three of the 550,000 people in China who suffer from a sudden cardiac arrest every year, of which only about 1 percent are saved.
