The video starts with the artiste dancing enthusiastically to Om Namah Shivay's song. During the performance, the woman collapses and drops to the floor. However, her legs and hands were seen moving. So the spectators believe that it might be part of her dance performance. The music continued to play in the background as she lay down on the stage.

Towards the song's end, another artist dressed as Lord Shiva enters the stage and tries to lift the woman. However, he is unable to do so. Understanding the seriousness, he called for help. Reportedly, the crew then took the woman to the hospital, where they realised she had suffered a heart attack. 

The viral video left social media users in shock. A user wrote, "High decibel Dj sound (bass) could also contribute to weakening the heart. There's no enforcement of sound pollution regulations. Sad." Another person commented, "Very sad condolence to her family members... We have seen many incidents such as this. It's not a normal but a big problem."

In the recent past, such heartbreaking incidents have been registered from all across the country.
