The X Factor – Some Poor Bugger Died At The Auditions
The X Factor auditions in Sydney had more drama than usual with a 33 year old man passing away as he was getting ready to sing.
The Sunday Telegraph reports:
The 33-year-old unidentified man, who was said to be a New Zealander, was rehearsing his song alone in a quiet alcove when he collapsed suddenly on Friday afternoon.
He was treated by medical personnel at the scene before being transferred by ambulance to nearby St Vincent’s Hospital, where he died a short time later from a suspected heart issue.
Witnesses have told investigating police the man “didn’t look very well” moments before he fell to the ground. It’s believed preliminary inquiries suggest nothing suspicious.
Part of the investigation will include canvassing the man’s family and friends to find out if he had a pre-existing heart condition.
A post-mortem examination is expected to be conducted by the coroner later this week.
