The patient had no cardiac high-risk factors and had short-lasting symptoms of the chest pain but presented in the emergency department in a semi-conscious state. The condition was diagnosed on transthoracic echocardiography and during the course of investigation, the patient instantaneously deteriorated and succumbed to the condition.
