According to London rag the Daily Mail, a UK doctor is speculating that a local woman, 34-year-old Atasha Graham, died after an allergic reaction to weave glue.
Apparently, Graham collapsed after returning home after a night out at a club. Although drugs and alcohol don’t seem to be a factor (she only a had small, non-lethal amount of alcohol in her blood and no drugs), doctors suspect the glue from Graham’s weave may have entered her blood stream through her sweat, triggering a deadly allergic reaction.
Although it seems like a freak accident, apparently, death by weave glue has happened before.
“There are about 10 to 20 deaths a year in this country, many more in America. I have seen four in the last three months.”
Even though the coroner confirmed Ms. Graham died of anaphylactic shock, he couldn’t pinpoint exactly which allergen caused her death.
