Doctors are urging people under the age of 40 to have their hearts checked soon as they may be at risk for Sudden Adult Death Syndrome.

The term SADS is used when an autopsy fails to establish an obvious cause of death.
The American SADS Foundation has stated that more than half of the 4,000 annual deaths of children, adolescents and young people from SADS have one of two main warning signs.
These signs in include a family history of SADS diagnosis or sudden unexplained death of a family member, as well as fainting or convulsions during exertion, excitement or fright.
A similar case was reported in Dublin last year. 31-year-old Katherine Keane suddenly died in her sleep.

At the same time, according to the woman, the deceased went to the gym and walked 10,000 steps a day.
According to the Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne, about 750 cases of sudden cardiac arrest occur annually in Victoria in people in under the age of 50.
