Does sudden heart attacks happen out of the blue at age 31 or any age healthy or not even with family history of it or not?

Update:

What about exercising and having sudden heart attack? Is that common or come out of the blue

    It's not common, but it can happen, usually because of a congenital defect of the type that is rarely detected until the attack happens.

    And yes, this can happen in the context of exercise. It's happened to some young athletes.

    It happens to fat people who do not exercise. People need to exercise and keep to a healthy weight.

    It's possible, yes. Some people with no family history and no underlying conditions, have heart attacks.

    They do, but it's extremely rare... like being struck by lightning rare. And more often than not, the victim had an unknown heart condition.

    They can happen any time.  About half the time the first symptom of a heart attack is death.

    They are rare at that age but that is the reason to have yearly checkups. Your doctor can look for signs of heart problems.

    Only if you have a undiscovered preexisting heart defect, are morbidly obese, or are doing illegal drugs like cocaine.
