A mother in China recently had a life-threatening heart attack after scolding her son for not being able to answer his math homework
The mother had gotten upset that she had to repeatedly explain a math problem to her son.
In her anger, she suddenly felt a pain in her chest.
The woman then called her husband to drive her to the hospital.
Doctors said that she made it just in time and could have lost her life.
"She caught it in time. If there had been any delay, she could have suffered from heart failure," said Yang Xiaoxue, a doctor at Xinhua Hospital's internal medicine department.
He also pointed out that for younger patients like Wang, an unhealthy diet and stress are the biggest causes of heart diseases.
The mother admitted that she would often get exasperated while helping her son with his homework but never expected that it would take such a toll on her.
