He clutches his chest in severe pain and is immediately shifted to a hospital ICU.The doctor steps out of the ICU and tells his family members that the elderly person has a major heart attack.
But the trouble is, in real-life, heart attack symptoms don't always announce themselves so dramatically. Hence, many people wait for hours before seeking medical help. This can be a fatal mistake. Early treatment not only minimizes heart damage, but it can also save one's life.

When the heart muscle does not receive oxygen and nutrients due to shutdown of blood supply, it can die. The longer the treatments delayed, more is the damage.
