Sheikh Rashid, son of Dubai's ruler, dies of heart attack at age 33 [View all]

Source: USA Today

The oldest son of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum died of a heart attack at age 33 Saturday morning, according to the United Arab Emirates' official state news agency WAM.

The deceased Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was the older brother of the emirate's heir apparent, the crown prince Sheikh Hamdan. Their father, in addition to ruling Dubai, is the vice president and prime minister of the United Arab Emirates.

A three-day period of mourning was declared and emirate flags flown at half-mast. The burial was late Saturday. The Dubai ruler prayed over the body of his son at the burial, according to WAM.

Does anyone else find it a bit suspicious that this man, who was still very young and appeared from the photograph to be in excellent health, just drops dead out of nowhere from a "heart attack"?

Seems a bit Shakespearean, to say the least.
