Update: Heart ailment killed Drake student, father says

Posted on October 12th, 2011 by

The father of a Drake University student said his daughter died suddenly Saturday of an undiagnosed heart condition, but acknowledged his daughter had too much to drink while celebrating her 21st birthday the night before. Brad Clark of Meriden, Kan., said a Polk County Medical Examiner official told him an autopsy on his daughter, Lydia Gale Clark, revealed abnormal heart tissue that was sent to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., for further testing.
