Most parents have experienced feelings of frustration and exasperation when staying up late to help with their child’s maths homework. However, one mother from China has gone one step further. 

Wang, a 36-year-old mother from Hubei, China, almost died from a heart attack after trying to help her son with his maths homework. 

The heart attack came after she repeatedly tried to explain a maths equation to her primary-aged son. 

According to Sin Chew Daily, Wang always helped her son with his maths homework but the night of the incident found it more difficult than usual to help him figure out an equation. Wang told local media.  

"I explained it to him many times but he still couldn't get it. 

"I was so angry that I could explode.” 

Wang added, she then suddenly felt her heart “palpitating” and found it difficult to breathe properly. 

She immediately called her husband and was rushed to the hospital. 

Doctor Yang Xiaoxue, at the Xinhua Hospital, told local reporters Wang experienced myocardial infarction, another word for a heart attack.

"She caught it in time. If there had been any delay, she could have suffered from heart failure," Yang told local media. 

According to local media, she is still in hospital.
