Top cardiologists link apparent rise in ‘unexpected’ deaths to COVID shots

A 25-year-old former college football player died after suffering a heart attack while jogging.

Jake Hescock, who played tight end for the University of Wisconsin and the University of Central Florida, suffered cardiac arrest in Boston on Dec. 6, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

A cousin, Lisa Walz Mlynarczyk, wrote on Facebook, “It is with a heavy heart that I have to say my cousin Jake has passed on, may he Rest in Peace and forever shine his bright soul down upon us.”

Two prominent cardiologists – Dr. Peter McCullough and Dr. Aseem Malhotra – believe the best explanation for the apparent rise in “sudden and unexpected” deaths and cardiac events in otherwise healthy people is the COVID-19 vaccines.

Hescock, who was 6-foot-7, played at the University of Central Florida from 2018 to 2021 before moving back to Massachusetts.

UCF head coach Gus Malzahn said he was “heartbroken to hear of Jake’s passing.”

“He was an incredible person, who embodied what it means to be a UCF Knight. Everyone who knew Jake loved him, and he was a blessing to coach. He will be greatly missed.”

The University of Wisconsin football team’s Twitter account said: “Saddened to learn of the passing of former Badger Jake Hescock. Taken from us too soon. Our thoughts are with his family and friends.”

Dr. James Olsson, a Johns Hopkins-trained biomedical and cancer researcher, keeps track of the reported “died suddenly” incidents via Twitter. And there’s a “died suddenly” page on Facebook.

The BBC reported Tuesday a coroner in England concluded a 27-year-old man “died of a blood clot to the brain, caused as a direct result of his body’s reaction to the AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccination.”

In a recent study in Germany of autopsies of 35 people who died within 20 days of COVID-19 vaccine injection, a total of 25, or 71%, had a final diagnoses consistent with a vaccine injury.

The injuries record included myocardial infarction, worsening heart failure, vascular aneurysm, pulmonary embolism, fatal stroke and vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia.

McCullough, in a recent video interview with WND, pointed out that in the past, long before the COVID vaccines, athletes who died sudden typically were diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, an abnormal thickening of the heart, or premature heart blockage. Now, athletes are thoroughly screened to rule out those conditions.

“When someone dies and the family doesn’t come out and say anything, or doctors don’t come out and say anything, it’s a reasonable assumption that it was the vaccine, until proven otherwise,” McCullough told WND.

    “What is causing an ominous pattern of media stories reporting sudden deaths of fit young athletes?
    Why would healthy, young athletes die suddenly, often on the playing field, despite having on-site EMTs trained in resuscitation?
    Why were there hundreds of cardiac deaths in athletes since June 2021, when a Swiss study documented an average of 29 deaths per year in that demographic prior to 2021?

    Were the sudden deaths related to the known risk of myocarditis (heart inflammation) associated with mRNA COVID-19 vaccination?
    Why did the term “sudden adult death syndrome” start appearing often in the media in 2022 to describe the rise in cardiac-related symptoms among young people, causing them to be advised to “go and get their hearts checked”?
    Since young people are not dying from COVID-19, could the excess deaths be caused by the COVID-19 vaccines?”
