A 35-year-old man, who had recently got married, suffered a heart attack while playing Garba and died while being taken to hospital in Virar, said the police on Monday.
What is equally bad is that the father too died when he saw that the son had died, police said.
The deceased was identified as Manish Jain.
According to the police, the deceased Manish lived with his family in Global City Virar West. Manish suffered a heart attack during Dandiya on Saturday night, after which his father Narpat and his brother took him to the hospital, but Manish was declared dead.

After learning about his son's death, his father Narpat also collapsed and died of a heart attack in the hospital.
The Jain family trades in buying and selling gold. The deceased had got married three months back.
