[Ed. – The students tried to get her address from her so they could send help, but apparently the professor was unable to respond. Note that this basic situation wasn’t unique to or uniquely caused by anything in modern life, including COVID-19. Students observed it remotely, and we know about it, because of the conditions of modern life.]

Paola De Simone, 46, who taught 20th-century world history at Universidad Argentina de la Empresa in Buenos Aries, complained she was having trouble breathing during the Zoom session last week, the Sun reported, citing Diari Mes.

Her alarmed students asked her to give them her home address so they could summon help, but she gasped “I can’t” before collapsing, according to the news outlet.

De Simone’s husband, a doctor, discovered her lifeless body when he came home.
