If 60 and blood pressure and cholestrol are under control can you still have cardiac arrest?

In brief: Yes

Blood pressure and cholesterol are risk factors for coronary artery disease, it is possible to have these risk factors under good control and still get heart disease, for example one can have diabetes and smoke.
In any case controlling BP and cholesterol is a good start and lowers ones risk significantly.

In brief: Yes...

Cardiac arrest can result from many, many factors some of which are not under our control.
Living a healthy lifestyle makes this less likely but not impossible.

In brief: Yes

Think about this: we will all die someday.
When we do, we will surely have a cardiac arrest. Some people die before age 60. Some of those people lived healthy lifestyles and were unlucky. There are no guarantees in life and we don't come with a warranty. Sorry for the reality check. Live each day like it's your last. Carpe diem. (the romans were thinking about this fact 2000 years ago).
