A 12-year-old boy died in school because of his congenital heart condition . As reported in newspaper, he was suffering from cardiomyopathy , which inflames the heart muscles, prohibiting normal functioning. His mother died two years ago with the same disease.


His condition is uncontrollable. According to his father, he could die at any time since he was born. There are 35,000 babies are born each year in United States with some kind of congenital heart disease . Some will heal over time while others will require treatment.
