A doctor believes spicy food may have triggered the asthma attack that is being blamed for a British bride’s death, Agence France-Presse reported.

Charlotte Bending, 24, had recently wed Jitender Singh in Haryana in Northern India. The two worked together in Plymouth, England.

Dr. Bharat Bhushan said the mother of two died on Sept. 8 after she complained of a sore throat and collapsed, according to AFP.

"Charlotte was an asthmatic and had visited my place three times before this incident," he said. “Three days before she fell ill, she had lots of spicy food which she couldn't digest."

Singh is flying his wife's body back to her hometown of Liskeard in southwest England.
