At least 10 people reportedly died from heart attacks at garba events in Gujarat in 24 hours.
The youngest victim was 17-years-old; over 500 ambulance calls were made during this time.
The government has issued an alert and has ordered event organisers to take necessary safety measures.
Another fatal incident involved a 13-year-old boy, though it's unclear if his heart attack was linked to playing garba.
Dr. Anurag Mehrotra highlighted the high risks of heart diseases due to India's high diabetes, obesity, and hypertension rates.
He urged event organisers to have defibrillators and CPR-trained personnel, and stressed the importance of adopting healthier lifestyles.
