Mother dies of heart attack after son surprised her with a Dead Pose


A 40-year-old mother from atteridgeville died this morning after her 18-year-old son scared her with a #DeadPose.

According to a local radio Mona Baloyi who make a living by vending vetkoeks just came back from vending her vetkoeks in the morning to find her 18-year-old son dead on the floor of their living room. It is not clear what type of dead pose did the young man pull.

Vuyo who is her first-born and who according to neighbours is Mona’s pride because he just passed matric with 3 distinctions and he is going to study at the University Of Cape Town caused his mother’s death. For her to think he was dead for a split second was enough to trigger the fatal heart attack.

The neighbours said they heard one scream from the mother and a minute later the son ran out the house crying. “we asked what happen and he told us he was pranking his mother and she fainted, we called the ambulance and they couldn’t revive her. They told us she had a heart attack and she is dead”. Said Mona’s neighbour.


Mona was a single mother and she had 3 more children besides Vuyo two of them are in primary and one is in high school. The youngest started school today.

The authorities are condemning the dead pose trend because of its consequences. The creator of the sad trend is a young facebook user called Karabo Mnisi.
