Laughing gas death
A BRITISH teenager believed to have inhaled laughing gas at a party has died. The 18- year- old was rushed to hospital from the party in London on Saturday night but died two hours later. He was in cardiac arrest when ambulance officers arrived. “At this stage the death is being treated as unexplained pending the findings of the postmortem,” police said. Research published earlier this year showed there had been a rise in the recreational use of nitrous oxide, known by various names including “hippie crack”.
