A 36-year-old mom got so worked up while helping her son with his homework, when he couldn't seem to understand how to solve a math problem she had a heart attack.
Parenting in general can get pretty tough, and trying to explain math to a child can be frustrating, but, according to a recent news report from China, it can literally be life-threatening. A 36-year-old mother, Mrs. Wang, had to be rushed to the hospital on November 1st after suffering a heart-attack while doing homework with her nine-year-old son. She was apparently explaining a math problem to him and got so frustrated that he didn’t get it that her heart gave out.
“I explained it to him many times but he still didn’t get it. I was so angry that I could explode,” Mrs. Wang told Chinese reporters. “Suddenly, my heart was palpitating and I couldn’t breathe properly.”
Luckily, she quickly realized that something was seriously wrong with her and she called her husband, who drove her to a hospital. Doctors there diagnosed the young mother with myocardial infarction, commonly known as heart attack, and said that she was lucky that she got to the hospital so fast.
“She caught it in time. If there had been any delay, she could have suffered from heart failure,” the doctor said.
