Australian cricket legend, Shane Warne, died of a heart attack last March 4th while on a ‘boys holiday’ at Koh Samui, Thailand.
Shane Warne, 52, was found unresponsive in his hotel room by one of his friends who tried to wake him up for dinner, urging him to perform CPR for 20 minutes to revive Warne before the ambulance arrived, according to Daily Mail.
Warne was rushed to Thai International Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:56 pm.
Daily Mail reported:
Speaking this evening by phone, Police Senior Sergeant Major Suporn Hemruangsree said: ‘Police received a report about somebody who died at the Thai International Hospital so we went and asked the hotel, and found out that the deceased was in a group with four other friends and died in the room.
‘In the villa, the people were sleeping in separate rooms. They were sleeping from afternoon to evening, until about 5pm.
‘At 5pm somebody came to call out this person for dinner but the deceased did not respond so they called the other friends to perform CPR for 20 minutes. They waited for the ambulance to come.
‘The doctor announced the death of the person at 6:53pm. Police went and checked the room and there was no sign of intrusion or possessions being searched through. The body was sent for an autopsy at Koh Samui Hospital.’
Warne’s manager separately confirmed his death, saying that the father-of-three could not be revived.
Family and friends began to arrive at the Melbourne home of Warne’s former wife, Simone Callahan, early on Saturday morning.
Shane Warne was an advocate for the Covid-19 vaccine and for wearing a face mask. Warne received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine and got infected by the virus last August.

In his interview with Sky News, Warne was urging the public to get double vaccinated.
“Well, I think it’s just a matter of getting on with it, get your double vax and get on with it and learn to live with it, because I think no one over here seems to want to get locked down anymore, no one likes the lockdown. Obviously, it’s been such a tough time for everyone during the pandemic,” Warne said.
