The “sudden and unexpected” death of a “fit and healthy” Accrington man is set to be explored in a Channel 5 show tonight (November 29).

Ibnaan ‘Ibby’ Hussain, a former Accrington Stanley safety steward, died in May aged 33.

The investigation into his death will be explored on Cause of Death, a show which looks into  unexpected deaths and focuses on senior coroner Dr James Adeley and his team, and looks into the internal process of how an unexpected death is investigated in Lancashire.

In the episode, Ibnaan’s family will be given some answers around his unexpected death, especially as he is the third person in the family to have died in the last seven years. His brothers Nohmaan and Fayzaan died, aged 25 and 20 respectively.

On the episode Dr Adeley discovers that Ibnaan’s death was caused by left ventricular hypertrophy, which is a thickening of the walls of the lower left heart chamber.

He said: “He is fit and well. He goes to bed the previous night as normal and his father finds him collapsed the following morning. This is extremely unusual. This is the third death in the family of male siblings.

“We have a CT post mortem report that shows his enlarged left side of his heart, but we don’t understand how it is enlarged.

“The question here is how do we safeguard other members of the family to ensure they do not suffer the same fate.”

In an emotional moment his sister Tehnzila Hussain says she is worried about suffering the same fate.

She said: I loved him. He was one of my role models. He used to take me to the park. I used to be the naughty one but he would always take the blame.

“I am nervous and scared. I don’t want the same thing to happen to me as I have kids.

“I am scared for my girls as I am worried that I will go to sleep and not wake up. I thought Ibby was healthy and that there was nothing wrong with him.

“In the back of my mind I wonder if I will wake up tomorrow.”

After undergoing tests, and citing chest pain and heart palpitations as symptoms, Tehnzila was told she may have the same heart condition that caused her brother’s death.

She was told that her ECG was “not completely normal” and that there was evidence of left ventricular hypertrophy. She was then asked to undergo further tests.

Tehnzila said it felt like her brother was “looking down on her”.

She said: “I feel relieved that I know now and can do those further test now.

“If Ibby recognised the symptoms he could have got himself tested and saved himself. He would have been alive today.

“I would have ignored the symptoms as well thinking I am absolutely fine. He is still looking out for me even though I have lost him.

“I feel like he is looking down on me saying ‘get this sorted out. I couldn’t but you can’.”

Cause of Death airs tonight (November 29) at 9pm, on Channel 5.
