Mary Tamm's husband died from a broken heart

6/13/2014

British actress Mary Tamm's husband died from a broken heart hours after her funeral, according to an inquest. The Doctor Who star lost her long battle with cancer in July (12) and her devoted husband, Marcus Ringrose, passed away just hours after delivering a "stunning" 20-minute eulogy at her memorial two weeks later. An inquest heard that Ringrose, 59, died of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome which can be triggered by emotional distress, causing a massive disturbance in the heart's rhythm. Deputy Coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe recorded a verdict of death by natural causes and said, "The condition can be triggered by stressful and emotional events which undoubtedly Mr. Ringrose had been going through."
