Four of Shane Warne’s friends fought for twenty minutes to save his life after he died of a suspected heart attack.
The Australian bowler died unexpectedly in Thailand just hours after paying tribute on social media to cricketer Rod Marsh, who also died of a heart attack at the age of 74 in the early hours of Friday morning.
And it was revealed that Shane’s group of friends had traveled to Thailand in desperate cardiac resuscitation for twenty minutes before the ambulance arrived.
The 52-year-old was then taken to Thai International Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Confirming the tragic news of Shane’s death and his friends’ desperate attempts to save his life, Senior Police Sergeant Major Suporn Hemruangsri issued the following statement:
“The police received a report of someone who had died at the Thai International Hospital, so we went and asked the hotel and found out that the deceased was with four other friends and had died in the room.
“In the villa, people slept in separate rooms. They slept from afternoon to evening, until about 5 p.m.
He continued: “At 5 pm someone came to call this man for dinner, but the deceased did not respond, so they called three other friends to do a CPR in 20 minutes. They waited for the ambulance to arrive.
“The doctor reported the person’s death at 6:53 p.m. Police said they checked the room and there were no signs of intrusion or searches. The body was sent for autopsy to Ko Samui Hospital,” it concluded.
They wrote: “Shane was found unresponsive in his villa and despite all the efforts of the medical staff, he could not be revived.
“The family wants privacy right now and will provide further details in a timely manner.
Hours before his death, Shane turned to social media to pay tribute to cricketer Rod Marsh, who also died of a heart attack at the age of 74 in the early hours of Friday morning.
Shane will be remembered forever as one of the greatest bowling players in the history of the sport, playing the sport internationally and domestically in his home state of Victoria, Australia.
He also plays for the Hampshire England cricket team and is captain of the Australian national team at One Day Internationals.
The cricketer is survived by his children Jackson, Summer and Brooke and his parents Bridget and Keith Warne.
