Doctors believe cardiac arrest to be cause of death
Hyderabad: A nineteen-year-old student dropped dead while he was appearing his 12th board exams at the Sri Chaitanya College examination centre in Secunderabad on Saturday.
The student has been identified as M Gopi Raju. He was a student of YMCA New Government College in Telangana and a resident of Ameerpet.

Lakhs of students appear for their 10th and 12th board exams every year. Cardiologists believe that the stress on these young minds is enormous. Peer pressure and parental pressure are an added burden. Inactive lifestyles and stress have led to an alarming increase in the number of heart attacks occurring to young people in late teens and early twenties.
