 Teen Dies After Having a Bite of Chicken and Chips

Chris Smith, aged 17, went into a severe anaphylactic shock just after having one bite of chicken and chips which he had eaten several times before this. As he had a bite he felt a burning sensation in his throat and his mouth began to swell.

Chris had peanut allergy but thought that it was just a mild attack and did not use his adrenaline injection (EpiPen), which treats severe allergic reactions.


Though the paramedics arrived quickly Chris could not be saved despite been given a large dose of adrenaline as his condition deteriorated rapidly. Chris was even given CPR but he passed away on the way to the hospital.
