As for what the Call Me Kat star's final moments looked like, Jordan was driving behind the wheel of his luxury vehicle when his heart began to fail and ultimately caused him to lose consciousness.

"The first few minutes [of sudden cardiac dysfunction] are very crucial as the blood flow to the brain gets cut down drastically and the person loses consciousness, which can ultimately result in death," according to Apollo Hospitals, as the condition causes "the heart to beat dangerously and extremely fast."
