66 years ago His Heart Skipped a Beat

Fashion designer Christian Dior dies of a heart attack at the age of 52 in Montecatini Terme, Toscana, Italy.

Some reports say that Dior died of a heart attack after choking on a fish bone. Time's obituary stated that he died of a heart attack after playing a game of cards. However, the Paris socialite Baron de Redé wrote in his memoirs that contemporary rumor was that Dior's heart attack had been caused by a strenuous sexual encounter with two young men.
