Doha: A 32-year-old Indian expatriate died of a heart attack while playing cricket at a school ground in the Madinat Khalifa North neighbourhood of Doha.
The deceased, Pramod Therayil, was working as an electrician in a contracting firm.
A resident of Veliyankode in Malappuram district of Kerala, Therayil was positioned on the outfield when he complained of chest pain Friday. He collapsed immediately and was rushed to a hospital. He died before reaching the hospital, a friend of the deceased told Gulf-times.
The death came on Therayil's wedding anniversary, he said.
Therayil had become a father earlier this year. He returned from vacation about two months ago, after seeing the newborn. Efforts are on to transport his body to his native place.
