Later, the physician who examined him stated that he passed away as a result of "over-excitement from watching the movie."
Similar death was witnessed on the release of the movie- ‘Anabelle Comes Home’Bernard Channing, a 77-year-old British tourist in Thailand, decided to watch the just-released movie Anabelle Comes Home. Sadly, the woman seated next to him only became aware of his death when the movie ended and the lights were turned on.
She screamed and contacted the emergency services when she realized he was dead. Inside the establishment, the man's death was declared. The human heart is a strange though very sensitive organ and it reacts in its way to both grief and excitement.
