Why Do People Die in Their Sleep?

Answer

There are a few different reasons why people die in their sleep. One reason someone may die in their sleep is due to obstructive sleep apnoea. This causes the breathing to stop after the airway collapses. Other reasons why people die in their sleep include having a heart attack in their sleep, cancer, natural causes, having too much too drink, drugs, and other illnesses or disorders. Another reason could be from smoke inhalation if they place of residence caught on fire, but they didn't wake up.
