Peru: Amateur footballer dies after drinking ice cold water post his match

A 27-year-old footballer died after his match ended due to a heart attack because he drank ice cold water. The ice-cold water prompted a rare cardiovascular reflex.

Ludwin Florez Nole had just finished playing with his local side Los Rangers in Sullana Province, north-west Peru when he fell sick and went home.

His wife said that he drank a glass of cold water, “Shortly afterwards he started to have chest pains so I took him to a nearby clinic, but he died on the way,’ she said.

“The doctor told me that he suffered a heart attack because he drank too much cold water while his body was still hot.”
