Have just read the story in England about the man who ate loads of hot chillis for a dare and they killed him!! Scary biz..... reminds me of some men who were sent down in to a pickle onion storage container to clean it out and the fumes killed them!! Do you know of any more stories like this???

I'm so sorry for coming in so late. Yes I've also heard such stories of freak accidents, like people dying due to overeating some or other stuff, overdrinking of even water also, heads severed by lift doors, child dying after getting stuck in escalator and so on.

I hadn't heard or read that story. It reminds me of many years ago when I was married to my first husband, he ate a ton of really hot peppers on his meal I made...and then later he passed out while standing in the bathroom and went head first between the toilet and the wall. Boy, did I ever have a hard time pulling him out of that position, he was stuck, passed out, and couldn't breathe. After I pulled him out, he came to, and I took him to the emergency room. The attending Dr said that he had had so many hot peppers that the gas pressed on his vagus nerve (sp?) and that is what caused him to pass out. It's amazing how super human a 100# woman can get when the adrenaline pumps! It's also amazing how a food can do that to you.
