A 30-year-old New Zealand "Coca-Cola addict" has reportedly suffered a heart attack and died due her unusual Coke habit. We're talking about the sweet stuff that comes out of a very familiar looking red can.
According to her husband, the mother of two had been surviving on nothing but Coke and cigarettes. More from AJC:
Harris' partner, Chris Hodgkinson, testified that Harris drank between 8 and 10 liters (2.1 and 2.6 gallons) of regular Coke every day — that's more than 20 12-ounce drinks.
"The first thing she would do in the morning was to have a drink of Coke beside her bed and the last thing she would do at night was have a drink of Coke," Hodgkinson said in a deposition. "She was addicted to Coke." Hodgkinson also said Harris ate little and smoked about 30 cigarettes a day. In the months before her death, he said, Harris experienced blood pressure problems and lacked energy.
Doctors believe that the woman most likely suffered from insufficient potassium and (possibly) excessive levels of caffiene.
