Heart Attack Fells Winner

Mar 1972: Overwhelmed by the excitement of winning on a game show, housewife Maud Walker had a heart attack and died in front of the cameras. The studio didn't air that episode but offered to show it to her relatives so they could "see how happy she was."

Yeah, I'd like a DVD of my near and dear dropping dead. Maybe put a tv in my front window and play it on a loop during Halloween.

Didn't some "I'll live to be a hundred" health guru drop dead while being interviewed by Dick Cavett? (or was it Carson?) I only know about this because there are people who keep pushing to get the tape released.

Thanks, Paul. I knew it was someone like that but could never have come up with the name.
