Bloomberg News Service, 25 March


A terrible diet and room with no ventilation are being blamed for the death

of a man killed by his own gas. There were no marks found on his body, but

an autopsy revealed the presence of large amounts of methane dissolved in

his blood.


His diet had consisted primarily of beans and cabbage, just the right

combination of foods to produce a severe gas attack. It appears that the

man died in his sleep from breathing the poisonous cloud that was hanging

over his bed.


Had his windows been open, the flatulence wouldn't have been fatal, but the

man was shut up in a nearly airtight bedroom. He was an obese man with an

unlimited capacity for creating the deadly gas. Three rescuers became sick

and one was hospitalized.




I remember hearing this exact same story on Howard Stern back in 1997 or so.
