Pop artist Andy Warhol born as Andrew Warhola aka The Pope of Pop dies of a sudden post-operative cardiac arrhythmia at the age of 59 in New York Hospital, New York City, New York, United States.

Warhol had been making good recovery from a routine gallbladder surgery before dying in his sleep. Warhol's family sued the hospital for inadequate care, saying that the arrhythmia was caused by improper care and water intoxication. The malpractice case was quickly settled out of court and Warhol's family received an undisclosed sum of money.
