Dr. Lutchmedial received his third injection, aka “booster,” on October 24. He attempted a play on words to celebrate his third shot, calling it “Vax Shot 3: Electric Flu-Galoo.” It is an apparent reference to the 1984 film “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo.” However, there is no third Breakin’ movie. Dr. Lutchmedial said he expected to feel sick after the shot because “my immune system is ramped up!”
His last Facebook post was published on November 7 at 3:10 p.m. local time. It was about visiting friends and family (his kids) at the University of Guelph in Ontario. Dr. Lutchmedial “died in his sleep” on November 8, according to CBC News.
He worked at the New Brunswick Heart Centre for more than 20 years. Dr. Lutchmedia was part of a team to perform the first MitraClip procedure in Eastern Canada. It repairs the heart’s mitral valve without open-heart surgery.
