What a way to go.

Andrew Lee, 33, suffered heart failure the morning after he ate the chilli.

 

Toxicology tests are now being carried out to see if the fork lift truck driver suffered a fatal reaction to the dish or whether anything else contributed to his death.

 

Mr Lee, of Edlington, Doncaster was apparently in perfect health and had just passed a medical at work, the opening of the Doncaster hearing was told.

 

Cooking was one of his main interests and he went to his girlfriend Samantha Bailey's house to make a chilli.

 

His father John Lee told the inquest: "He had a bet with Samantha's brother who could make the hottest chilli then went back to her house to stay."

 

Mother-of-four Miss Bailey called the emergency services to her home nine days ago.

 

Police officers were called to the house after receiving reports of a man suffering a cardiac arrest and Mr Lee was found lying on the floor.

 

Paramedics failed to revive him and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

 

A full post-mortem examination is underway and further inquiries are being carried out.

 

Deputy Doncaster coroner Fred Curtis granted a burial order and adjourned the inquest for further evidence.

No evidence yet it was due to the chilli though, "after" does not always equal "because of"

 

Yep, pretty much. I didn't say the chilli killed him though, just in case you thought I did. Just pasted what the Telegraph said.

Did any brave hardy soul risk giving him the kiss of life?

 

I hate chilli so I may have had to leave him to it :lol:

 

A funnel and a barrel of milk of magnesia would have been my tactic.Havent yet figured my strategy would have worked better at the top or bottom end though.

I know the ambulance services get bad press, but to take nine days to get to a cardiac arrest is slightly worrying.

Did Mark Thatcher become an ambulance driver by any chance?
