In brief: Heart attack
Its rare but can happen if they have underlying pathology that can lead to very premature heart disease.

In brief: Yes, but very rarely
Heart attacks are caused by cholesterol deposits in the coronary arteries becoming inflamed with a blood clot forming, blocking the flow of blood.
Very, very rarely there can be genetic abnormalities with exceedingly high cholesterol levels at an early age or congenital birth abnormalities such as having 1 instead of the normal 3 arteries that can lead to very early heart attacks.
