A coroner in Britain has determined that a 12-year-old boy died after using too much spray deodorant in a confined space, according to a report from abc.net.au.
Daniel Hurley collapsed in a January after spraying on Lynx deodorant in the bathroom of his Derbyshire home.
An inquest was told last week that a "volatile" agent in the deodorant upset the boy's heart rhythm.
He was hospitalized after the incident and died five days later from a cardiac arrhythmia, also known as abnormal heart rhythms, according to the report.
The boy’s father, Robert Hurley, told the inquest that Daniel was fit and healthy. He also took pride in his appearance, using hair gels and deodorants, which he often sprayed all over his clothes.
The coroner said it was combination of the deodorant and the fact that it was sprayed in a confined space that caused the adverse effect on the boy's heart.
His death followed an incident several weeks earlier when he had collapsed in the bathroom but quickly recovered, according to the report.
