12-year-old dies from deodorant overdose

Yikes, we’re sure we’re not the only ones that didn’t know deodorant could be fatal.

The paper says Daniel Hurley collapsed in his family’s bathroom on Jan. 12 and died from cardiac arrhythmia five days later.

“He was always putting gel on his hair and spraying deodorant and it was quite common for him to spray his clothing as well,” Robert Hurley, the boy’s father, said during the inquest, according to the paper.

Sky News says the local coroner ruled last week that Daniel died because he failed to heed the warnings on his can of Lynx Vice.
