Many people enjoy a good scare... but is it possible to actually be scared to death?

A doctor from the University of Rochester Medical Center is telling us -- yes!

"Even kids there are certain genetic conditions there are certain inheriteds that might pre-dispose people to having instances in which they can get scared to death and they can feel their heart racing," says Eugene Storozynsky, cardiologist.

Doctors did say enjoy the Halloween season. But if you have a heart condition, be sure to take your medications and be cautious.
