How does heart attack happen? 

Heart attack is also called myocardial infarction. A person gets a heart attack when the blood supply to the heart muscle is not done properly or stops. According to the Indian Express report, immediate treatment is needed to restart the blood flow. However, when immediate treatment is not available, the heart muscles keep on getting damaged and if the condition worsens, death also occurs.
