Nour supporter dies in court?

A journalist from Al Masri Al Youm told me today that one of Ayman Nour's supporters that had turned up in the suffocating courtroom died today, presumably from the heat and commotion inside the courtroom. It sounds rather far-fetched and as far as I know not confirmed yet, but if true should be soon. I was not able to attend today's session but from what everyone tells me it was a nightmare.
