one had even died from a heart attack in his sleep after telling his parents how terrible his nightmares were and was scared of falling asleep.

From what I remember it was a  Cambodian family that moved to The States and it was their teenage son that died... I can't help you with a link though (check out Wes Craven)

There have been reports of people dying in their sleeps, and reports that they had had problems with nigh terrors and things. But we can't really ask them if they died in their dream, now can we? lol. I think alot of it probably has to do with sleep apnea and I've heard that night terrors have been blamed for some deaths, though I'm sure no one could ever really prove it. Like I said, I think alot of it has to do with sleep apnea. I've known a couple of people that suffered from this, and they seemed like they suffered from  night terrors at the same time. They would have these experiences where they would wake up terrified, as if from a nightmare, and gasping for breath. One, who was an old boss of mine, had a father who died from sleep apnea, and he recognized the symptoms right away. The other was an old friend of mine, and it took her a while before she got diagnosed. She used to always talk about being terrified that she would die in her dreams and, in turn, die in real life. I never asked why she felt this, but she was always complaining of terrible nightmares, even though she never knew what they were.  They say night terrors are usually found in children, but adults get them too.  I haven't known anyone else with sleep apnea, so I don't know if the nightmare thing really fits in with all of them. Maybe, because the body stops breathing, the body sends signals to the brain of distress, which would cause the person to wake up feeling frightened and disoriented. Course, I'm most certainly not an expert on that subject.

Edit: I have died in my dreams plenty of times. I feel something, although I can probably say in all honesty that its not the pain that I would ACTUALLY feel if some of this stuff REALLY happened to me. Usually, when I have a "dying dream", I have the dream over and over again until I live or force myself to wake up before I die. It's really annoying. Thankfully, I've become a master of waking myself up. It's actually pretty easy. I just keep saying "This is a DREAM" and it sort of melts away. Oddly enough, I still haven't been able to actually, consciously, have a lucid dream. I only ever get any control at certain points during nightmares. Again, really annoying.

I have been beheaded in one of my dreams.  I even watched, in this very dream - I was now a disembodied being, whilst my body was cleared up, all the people watching the beheading via a guillotine etc etc.

I am still here.  Personally, I do not believe that you can die in real life because you died in a dream.

Its a fun urban legend to scare kids, but its false. I die all the time in dreams. Purposefully, I might add.

I wanted to test this out when I was younger(17).. so I killed one of my friends in a lucid dream to see if he'd die. I know that sounds alittle mean but I was pretty sure he wouldnt. So I was walking next to him in this dream.. and I went lucid and found myself holding a big knife.. so I did this very quick move and cut his throat. It was really horrible and he bled everywhere and just looked at me with this horrified look. I told him the next day and he wasnt too happy about it. lol. He gave me a weird look(violated), and I told him at least we know now that you cant die in dreams!

I've died a few times too in dreams... its weird.

I've died several times in one single dream.  I died repeatedly of electrocution, I was in a jeffries tube on the starship Enterprise and these little darts came out of the ceiling and stuck in my chest and zapped me and i felt my heart stop.

lol. Nah I dont really have any friends. Go figure eh.

lol.. Nah he was cool with it... like everyone knew I was into lucid dreaming and trying out new things in dreams..  so it wasnt too surprising. I told him and laughed about it.. and others laughed.. and he just gave me a weird look. lol I mean it was kinda funny... but he wasnt sure how to take it and that was what was funny. Still makes me laugh.

I remember once I had a dream I got shot in the head for trying to run away from this summer camp thing, and when I woke up I had a horrible headache
