    YES, YES, YES! I cannot stress more strongly that you do NOT need to be an athlete or participating in a strenuous physical activity to die from cardiac arrest. Heart arrhythmia problems, such as Long QT Syndrome happen, more often without activity, but it's just as deadly. Thanks you to the authors of this article for getting this right! After 4 years of 'fainting' episodes, our 17-year old daughter died of LQTS after being scared by something while she slept. Jess could not be resuscitated, and never saw her grade 12 graduation. Please honour her by watching her video. Also SADS Canada has a wonderfully informative video that explains the warning signs of cardiac arrest, which often masquerades as epilepsy as it present with a 'seizure' looking faint, and the treatment.
