Legendary musician Allen Toussaint died Monday following a performance in Spain. He was 77 years old.
Madrid emergency services spokesman Javier Ayuso told the Associated Press that rescue workers were called to Toussaint's hotel early Monday morning and managed to revive him after he suffered a heart attack.
But Ayuso says the 77-year-old Toussaint stopped breathing during the ambulance ride to a hospital and efforts to revive him again were unsuccessful.
He was taken to Jimenez Diaz Foundation Hospital in Madrid and was pronounced dead on arrival, El Mundo reported.
