London, November 1 (ANI): A 23-year-old Brit man, born with a congenital heart defect, suffered a fatal cardiac arrest after watching a porn film.

According to an inquest, Chris Nicholls, who could not be cured despite his repeated surgeries beginning as early as when he was 15-months-old, was found dead by his mother, Clare, in his bedroom.

Chris had undergone another open-heart surgery just weeks before his death at his residence in Redhill, Surrey.

Christopher was watching a blue movie when I found him. Later I told my husband, I know whats happened. Its got to be a rush of adrenaline because hes got excited, the Sun quoted Clare as saying.

Dr Mary Sheppard, who later examined Chris after his death, told Clare that watching pornography could have led to the cardiac arrest.

The pathologist said: Any kind of excessive stress or excitement could have brought on serious erratic heartbeat. So, yes, that could have been a factor.

Clare, however, lay the blame of his sons death on Londons Royal Brompton Hospital, where Chris had his latest operation.

She said: No one there told me how imminent death could be. When I asked for guidelines on how to care for Chris at home they looked at me like I was mad. (ANI)
