Things go deader with coke

This guy was apparently all warm and smuggly, until he wasn’t warm anymore:

A Japanese man has died on a flight from Mexico City after ingesting 246 bags of cocaine.

The flight, bound for Japan’s Narita International Airport, had to make an emergency landing in Mexico’s Sonora state after he began to have seizures.

Authorities said the man, identified as Udo N, died of a cerebral edema caused by a drug overdose.

The passenger transferred to the flight after starting his journey in the Colombian capital Bogotá.

According to a statement by Sonora’s attorney general, the bags — measuring 2.5cm long and 1cm wide — were found in his stomach and intestines during the autopsy.

And the 198 other passengers flew on across the Pacific.

    He must have heard somewhere that such a huge quantity of the stuff would have had a street value in the bazillions.
