Love bite that gives heavenly pleasure can be deadly as well. Yes, you are reading it right, a love bite or hickey can kill you. It can give you so much pleasure that you end up developing stroke resulting in paralysis or death.
In a similar scenario, a 17-year-old boy from Mexico died after getting a love bite from his 24-year-old girlfriend. Julio Macias Gonzalez was having dinner with his family when he had convulsions. Parents soon took him to the nearest hospital where doctors declared him dead of stroke.
According to doctors, the love bite from the girl resulted in a blood clot, which travelled to Mr. Gonzalez’s brain and caused the stroke. The report came as a shock to parents and they started blaming the girl for the death. As per the latest reports, the girl is hiding somewhere and her location is still unknown.
It is not the first case of stroke from love bite. Earlier in 2011, a 44-year-old woman from New Zealand developed stroke after love bite and lost movements in her left arm. Doctors were puzzled to know the cause of the stroke untill they saw a mark on right side of her neck that gave clear indications how she got stroke. She received treatment at Auckland’s Middlemore Hospital.
