A U.K. man died after suffering a severe nose bleed, The Daily Mail reported.

Robert Ford, 47, was walking in the center of town with a friend when his nose started to bleed, an inquest heard.

When his nose wouldn’t stop bleeding, Ford visited the Gravesend Medical Center, where he was able to get the bleed under control.

Doctors at the medical center told him to ice it when he got home. But several hours later, Ford died.

Olaf Biedrzycki, a pathologist, testified he had never seen a case like this before. He explained that blood apparently entered Ford’s airways, but he couldn’t explain it because the nosebleed had stopped by the time Ford died.

“This was certainly an odd case,” Biedrzycki said. “We don't really know how to explain it. I've looked very hard for a source of the blood and could not find it.”

Micheal Ford, Robert’s father, said he found him dead on the floor, with a small pool of blood around his mouth.
