 Milk Tanker Driver Died After Choking on Chewing Gum

A coroner investigating the death of a 60-year old milk tanker driver in New Zealand ruled that the death could have be caused due to choking on a piece of chewing gum when he was asleep in bed.

Stephen Ngatai was found dead in his bed by his brother James Old who went to check on him at his Patea house after Stephen's boss phoned him stating that his brother had not shown up for work. Old found his brother in the bed with ants crawling on his body.
