Doctor: Rafsanjani died of heart attack

Doctor: I want to take this opportunity to express my condolences to the family members of Hashemi Rafsanjani. At 6 pm, he had a sudden full cardiac arrest and was quickly admitted to the nearest hospital, where he arrived at the emergency room.  [His treatment] involved a team of specialist heart doctors and anesthesiologists who took all the necessary measures.  Regretfully, however, all these measures were not effective and he finally passed away at 7: 30 pm.


The reporter: what was the cause of his death?

Doctor: This incident occurred suddenly and requires more studies.  But what is clear is that on his arrival at the emergency room, he had no vital signs. His breathing and heartbeat had completely stopped, and, well, despite taking all the critical and necessary measures, there was no possibility of his coming back to life.

The reporter: Thank you so much
