Andrey Osipov, head physician of the Domodedovo Central District Hospital told “Izvestia” that the ex-soloist of the group “Tender May” Yuri Shatunov, who died on the night of June 23, was admitted to the institution already in a state of clinical death. According to him, the doctors tried to resuscitate the singer for about two hours, but failed to bring him back to life. The cause of death was acute heart failure, which was caused by a massive myocardial infarction, said Osipov.
According to the head physician of the Domodedovo Central District Hospital, Shatunov’s friends took him to the hospital in Rastunovo (near the place where they rested) late in the evening of June 22. There he was diagnosed with myocardial infarction and received first aid. Shatunov was then taken to the regional vascular center at the Domodedovo hospital. The singer, according to Osipov, arrived already in a state of clinical death. Five people tried to save the artist for about an hour and a half, but it did not help.
“Moreover, myocardial infarction was “stale”, as we say. It was about a day old. That is, he had been walking for a day in this state and there was a sharp deterioration … But the heart attack was such that nothing could be done. There was no smell of alcohol, – explained the head physician.
Osipov noted that Shatunov had a plaque in the vessels, which could have appeared due to a violation of the diet or a “complex lifestyle”, which may have been accompanied by smoking. In addition, the specialist recalled the difficult tour schedule of the singer, because of which he had increased emotional stress.
