I'm so Sorry, that I don't know your name....

Postby lexislove » 03pm31America/New_York()

I was at a church fundraiser dinner last night with my husband. About 300 people attended, and $7000.00 collected from dinner,donations and raffle tickets. This is going towards 4 children who unepectantly lost their father to a blood clot 3 years ago. Our community has gotten together every year since then and have had this dinner to help these children and their mother financialy.

Around 11:00pm last night a horrible turn of events happened. A woman,who I did not know personally, tragically had a heart attack and died on the floor after dancing. The band was playing a traditional folk dance called"kolo" and it's basically when you hold hands a dance in a circle.
It's a very old dance, most easter European countries have their own "kolo"

It is also very fast and with a lot of people in the hall can get very warm. the dance was about 10 minutes long and when it finished, everyone made their way back to the their tables.Except for this woman, she fell to the ground. People rushed to her and started to fan her, then they realized she was changing color (blueish). One woman who was a physician immediatly started CPR on her while 911 was called. Her poor husband who is 77 stood there crying. The paramedics did arrive but after close to 30min, could not revive her.

It was very sad and I'm still shocked.

I just wanted to say to her husband,the man that I don't know his name, that he and his family are in my prayers. I am so, so very sorry for your loss. Your beautiful wife is with God and she is resting in peace. Two candles were lit for you last night, one for youself and your wife.

I will never forget the look on his face.I just needed to put this out.

Oh lexis, I have chill bumps all over me! What a horrible thing to have happen, and to witness! I am just so saddened for this family, expecially her husband. Bless his heart! Oh gosh, my heart is broken too!

I pray you will be able to put that horrific sight out of your mind, so I am praying for the man and for you!

Lexi, I'm so sorry. I feel for this man. And if he knew that a stranger was reaching out to him, praying for him and so worried about him he would feel so blessed. This is a story that will make anyone cry if one has a heart.

Thanks ladies for the prayers. I still can not get this horrible event out of my mind. I talked to one of the woman who was working in the kitchen area that night. She had to stay later on and give her statement to the police, since she witnessed the woman collapsing.

Apparatly this woman who passed was very diabetic, taking insulin up to 3x a day. She went into a diabetic coma.
