Mom has heart attack because her son couldn't do a math question


A woman in Hubei, central China ended up fighting for her life after losing her cool at her son who struggled over a math question.

The mother, identified as Wang, got frustrated with her third-grader while trying to help him with his homework on Nov. 1.


The 36-year-old mother reportedly tried to explain the math question to her son multiple times, but to no apparent success.

As a result, she became furious and developed physical symptoms.

I explained it to him many times, but he still couldnt get it. I was so angry that I could blow up, Wang told reporters about her son.

Suddenly, I had palpitations and couldnt breathe properly. I immediately called my husband and asked him to take me to the hospital, she added.

Following medical assessment, a doctor determined that Wang had an episode of myocardial infarction, or in common terms, a heart attack.

This condition is increasingly affecting young people, with most cases related to diet. However, it can also be related to emotions, the doctor said. Most of the patients are young mothers.

Myocardial infarction occurs when one of the hearts coronary arteries responsible for supplying blood to the heart fail to receive enough oxygen.

This insufficiency may be caused by a blockage or a slow blood flow, which can result from rapid beating or low blood pressure, according to Harvard Health.

Factors that contribute to the development of a heart attack include genetics, aging, smoking, obesity, diabetes, high bad cholesterol, lack of physical activity, and stress.

Signs and symptoms of an ongoing episode include pain in the chest and arms (which may spread to the neck, jaw or back), shortness of breath, cold sweat, and sudden dizziness, to name a few.

Wang has been helping her son with his homework since he started schooling, but the incident on Nov. 1 was the first time her frustration turned into something extremely serious.

According to the doctor, she could have died if she did not reach the hospital in time.

Its unclear how long Wang had to stay at the hospital.

To avoid similar incidents in the future, the doctor advised the public to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly.

Florence Huang, a psychologist based in Hong Kong, added that parents should learn how to manage their emotions not only for their own health but for their children as well.

When this state of experiencing anger and aggression at home is prolonged, the childrens self-esteem may be affected, leading to self-blame and feelings of shame, humiliation and helplessness, Huang said.
