Yes!: Toxic Shock syndrome is due to a toxin produced by bacteria, either Staph or Strep. The bacteria produce a toxin which causes the immune reaction called Toxic Shock Syndrome. Tampons that are left on place for a prolonged period of time provide a culture medium for these bacteria to grow

May be anyone: Remaining on mechanical ventilation post op can be for many reasons. After some cases this is expected due to large fluid shifts during surgery. Healthy patients can remain intubated if some of the effects of medications haven't worn off, narcotics or muscle relaxants for example. Finally, if there was a problem related to the patient's lungs or airway either acute or chronic can be a reason.

Sudden death: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a thickening of the wall of the heart ventricle. As the wall becomes thick the interior of the muscle is predisposed to ischemia or lack of oxygen. This in turn can potentially cause a fatal arrhythmia which is usually the case when athletes have a sudden death on the court or field. It can also cause problems with flow through the aortic valve.
