From the viral video, the woman, Eunice Egbobawaye Osarugue, a journalist was seen dancing, all of a sudden she stopped, slumped and died. This happened in Benin city at her school reunion party of St. Maria Gorreti .
Eunice was said to be life of the party as she was proudly showing off her dance moves.
However after some minutes, people around her presumed it was tiredness while some noticed she was not moving nor responding to her name when she was called upon.
According to the eye witness reporter that informed Instablog9ja, Uyi Usoro who happens to be a medical doctor and a member of the resuscitation team…..
“She was said to have been dancing in the school hall then slumped on a chair. Was presumed to be tired but when she did not respond, doctors were alerted and checked her.
No peripheral pulses were palpated. Misinformation about her being an asthmatic made the doctors administer puffs of salbutamol to her via inhaler. When alerted, (smagoga doctors) we met her lying on the ground outside the hall.
We stopped the inhaler, could only palpate the left temporal pulse and continued anti shock management and Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation.
Then rushed her to the nearest private medical centre opposite the school but they had no oxygen.
Moved her to Central hospital in the hope of getting full complement of resuscitation facilities viz oxygen, defribillator.”
“On arrival at central hospital, she was pronounced BID ( brought in dead). No defribillator.
We continued administering CPR on the way to University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), in expectation of getting a defribillator.
Although a team was at reception to receive her, they confirmed no cardiac activity and also confirmed as BID.”
Her corpse was then transferred to Stella Obasanjo Hospital and Morgue.”
“According to the other information we got from are relatives:
She was a known hypertensive, was sick 3 months ago, collapsed after an injection administration and was in a coma for a week.
Osarugue Eunice Egbobawaye also had severe headaches two weeks ago and lapsed into unconsciousness for 24hours.
Her attending Doctor had advised her to do some comprehensive medical check up and investigations which she postponed.
She had severe headache prior to the opening ceremony of the 60th school anniversary of the Secondary school.”
“Diagnosis: Tentative cause of death is cardiorespiratory arrest secondary to hemorrhagic stroke/ruptured aneurysm.
