Rep.-Elect Luke Letlow Dies From Heart Attack After Surgery for Blood Clot Related to Coronavirus

(New York Post) — Louisiana Rep.-elect Luke Letlow, who died of COVID-19 complications, was operated on for a blood clot before he succumbed to a heart attack, according to a new report.

The 41-year-old Republican underwent two procedures to treat a blood clot that he developed while he battled the coronavirus, the Monroe News-Star reported.

The second operation appeared to be successful on Tuesday but he died later that day from a heart attack at Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport, the paper reported.

“It’s devastating to our entire team,” LSU Health Shreveport Chancellor G.E. Ghali told the paper, adding that Letlow “had no underlying conditions.”
