In Irwin, Pennsylvania, a son was on his way to see his father, who had just suffered from a heart attack and passed away. Before he arrived, he too, started having chest pains.
Charles McCauley Jr. was rushing to his father’s home Saturday after learning of the older man’s death when the younger McCauley began suffering from chest pains. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports father and son died 1 hour and 7 minutes apart.
The elderly father, Charles McCauley Sr, 83, was enjoying a nice day at home which included the Pittsburgh Steelers preseason game and an unfortunate heart attack. Ironically, he 54-year-old son, Charles McCauley Jr, was AT the game when he started suffering from chest pains and had to be taken out by paramedics.
Father and son, same name, same game, and same way of death on the same day. This has got to be one of the most ironic stories yet.
