Cuddalore: An AIADMK member from Cuddalore district (Gandhi Nagar) died after seeing news about Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa's health condition on Sunday night.
Tamil Nadu CM Jayalalithaa is critical after she suffered a cardiac arrest in Chennai's Apollo hospital where she was admitted over two months ago.
Apollo Hospitals, in a tweet late last night, said doctors were closely monitoring Jayalalithaa's condition and trying their "very best".
"Our doctors are closely monitoring Hon'ble CM's condition and they are trying their very best," Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director of Apollo Hospitals, tweeted.
68-year-old Jayalalithaa is "critical", she said in an earlier tweet, adding that the AIADMK chief was on extracorporeal membrane heart assist device and being treated by a team of expert doctors and critical care specialists.
Security has been beefed up across the state.
Jayalalithaa was hospitalised on September 22 after she complained of fever and dehydration.
