22-year-old techie dies while exercising in workplace gym
A 22- year-old techie, working with Dell, fell while doing a work out in the gym at office in Madhapur. By the time he was rushed to hospital, he was already dead.
According to police, Varun Kumar, a native of Vizag and living in Matrusrinagar in Miyapur was employed as a software professional in Dell, Hyderabad for the past one year.
"The gym instructors asked him to sit for a while, but he suddenly collapsed in a heap and became unconscious. Varun was rushed to the company clinic on the campus. The doctor checked Varun's blood pressure, and found that his pulse was hovering at 40," Madhapur sub-inspector P Vijay Kumar said.
After some time, Varun was rushed to Max care hospital, but he was declared brought dead. It is believed that Varun died due to exhaustion caused by extreme exercising.
Varun, a native of Visakhapatnam, joined Dell a year ago and had been working out in the gym regularly.
"When we spoke to Varun's father, who rushed to the city after being informed about his son's death told us that Varun had some heart problem in the past," Madhapur police inspector Kalinga Rao told media.
Police discovered that Varun had not eaten properly on Tuesday night and in spite of this fact he over exercised in the gym on Wednesday.
