An Indian man died from cardiac arrest following four days of fasting and praying for President Trump’s health after his COVID-19 diagnosis.
Krishna began following Trump and actively praying to him as “his god” after seeing him in a dream, Reuters reported earlier this year. He erected a 6-foot statue in Trump’s honor.
Bussa Krishna, from the Indian state of Telangana, collapsed while having tea at a family member’s house on Sunday, according to reports.
Krishna was pronounced dead by doctors after being taken to the hospital for treatment, his family told The Indian Express. He was 33.
“He had slipped into depression after hearing about Trump contracting coronavirus,” his cousin B Vivek told The Indian Express. “He was not eating properly. When we rushed him to the hospital, the doctors declared him dead.
The cause of death is a cardiac arrest.” Trump tested positive for the coronavirus on October 1 and received medical treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
