Ludwin Florez Nole, a 27-year-old footballer, has reportedly died of heart failure after a glass of cold water moments after a football match which prompted an unusual cardiovascular reaction.
According to UK Sun report, Ludwin Florez Nole, just finished a football match for his local team Los Rangers based in Sullana Province, northwestern of Peru, when he started feeling sick as he headed home.
Reacting after the incident, his wife Flores revealed he took an ice cold glass of water and “shortly afterwards he started to have chest pains so I took him to a nearby clinic, but he died on the way”.
“The doctor told me that he suffered a heart attack because he drank too much cold water while his body was still hot,” his wife was quoted as saying to the local media.
Interestingly, the medics are of the view that the cold water caused a change in the footballer’s heart rate, leading to a cardiovascular reflex.
The condition is considered unusual when brought on by drinking a cool liquid, but microbial contaminants in water are known to bring on stomach cramps and other similar conditions.
Additional reports further added that Arsenic in water could also lead to headaches, stomach pains, convulsions, diarrhoea, vomiting and even death.
