Did US Health System Aid Chilton’s Death?

Big Star singer Alex Chilton died recently of a heart attack, prompting a wave of tributes from the many musicians he inspired. Now Chilton’s wife has revealed that he experienced a number of warning signs in the week before his death, but was unable to afford to seek health because of the state of the US healthcare system. As the times-Picayun explained .

"At least twice in the week before his fatal heart attack, Chilton experienced shortness of breath and chills while cutting grass. But he did not seek medical attention… in part because he had no health insurance." There’s no way of knowing if Chilton could have been saved in a country with an advanced healthcare system, but it’s certainly sad he was unable to seek aid.
