A well-known Indian academic died mid-sentence in a disturbing scene that was captured on live television.

Rita Jitendra was a guest on the 8:30 a.m. talk show “Good Morning J&K” on Monday when her head slumped backward, her mouth fell open and her eyes closed, as she suffered cardiac arrest, the Telegraph in India reported.

The article goes on to state the following:

“She was telling us a few interesting things about her life and was looking absolutely normal,” said the anchor of the show, Zahid Mukhtar. “But suddenly she stopped talking and began having hiccups. We had to cut the interview [and switch to] a documentary to attend to her and take her to hospital.”

Jitendra, 81, who had retired as secretary of a government organization called Jammu and Kashmir Academy of Art, Culture and Languages and made regular appearances on TV, was pronounced dead on arrival.

“She had a great association with television and her last words were on how she had started doing the dramas,” said Mukhtar.
