Doha | A 32-year-old Indian died of heart attack while playing cricket at a school ground here on his wedding anniversary. Pramod Therayil, a native of Veliyankode in Malappuram district, Kerala, was working as an electrician in a contracting firm in Madinat Khalifa North at Qatar’s capital.
While playing the sport yesterday morning, Therayil was positioned on the outfield when he complained of chest pain. He collapsed immediately and was rushed to a nearby hospital. Therayil, however, died en route to the hospital, his friend said, adding that the death came on his wedding anniversary.
He was blessed with a child earlier this year and had returned from a vacation only about two months ago, after seeing his newborn child. Efforts are being made to send his body to his native place in India.
