A 52-year-old prominent New Brunswick cardiologist suddenly died in his sleep just two weeks after getting his 3rd Covid jab.
Over the summer Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial attacked “selfish” people who choose not to take the Covid jab.
“For those that won’t get the shot for selfish reasons – whatever – I won’t cry at their funeral” Dr. Lutchmedial said in a July 2021 tweet.
Dr. Lutchmedial died unexpectedly on November 8 – just two weeks after getting his 3rd Covid shot. He got his 3rd Covid shot on October 24, per a Facebook post.
According to Canadian media, Dr. Lutchmedial’s friends, family and colleagues are in shock over his sudden death.
Dr. Sohrab Lutchmedial dedicated more than 20 years to the New Brunswick Heart Centre and the care of patients suffering from heart disease, said a statement from the staff of the New Brunswick Heart Centre.
“It is with profound sadness that we report the sudden and unexpected death of a colleague, friend, father, partner and inspiring spirit,” the statement says.
Lutchmedial died Monday in his sleep at his Saint John home, said Jean-François Légaré, the head of cardiac surgery at the New Brunswick Heart Centre. He was 52.
