17-year-old boy reportedly dies after getting hickey from girlfriend
MEXICO CITY, Mexico — Doctors in Mexico are blaming the death of a 17-year-old boy on a hickey.
They say the hickey resulted in a blood clot that caused Julio Macias Gonzalez to have a stroke.
Gonzalez was with his girlfriend before he started having convulsions at the dinner table with his family.
This is at least the second report of a hickey causing a stroke.
The first one happened to a 44-year-old woman in New Zealand, but she survived.
Researchers say the medical condition is a rare phenomenon.
