Mostly men during sex, die of a heart attack because their partners did not immediately call an ambulance .

Men often die of a heart attack, what happened during sex because their partners are embarrassed to call for help. To such conclusion scientists from the European hospital Georges-Pompidou, reports The Independent.

The researchers analyzed data on 3028 patients who have been diagnosed with heart failure. While 246 people were engaged in physical activity during heart attacks, 17 of them having sex.

Scientists noticed that only one out of eight people survived a heart attack that occurred during intercourse. At the same time, about half the people survive if the heart attack occurred under any other circumstances.

According to researchers, the cause of frequent deaths during lovemaking is a shock to partners who don’t know how to react, and not immediately call an ambulance. With each minute of delay reduces the survival chances of the patient by 10%. If a heart attack occurred during sex, the patient had to wait for a cardio-pulmonary resuscitation twice as long.
