Cocaine carrier dies of mid-air heart-attack.
01 October 2008 @ 10:46

 A Nigerian man suffered a heart attack after cocaine capsules burst in his stomach, forcing a plane flying from Senegal to Spain to make an emergency landing in Morocco, airport officials and police said Tuesday.  The man was taken ill during the flight on Sunday with a "heart condition caused by a drug overdose," airport authorities said, with police confirming that a subsequent X-ray had revealed 62 cocaine capsules inside his stomach -- two of which were found to be empty.  "We believe that the contents of the empty capsules provoked the overdose and the heart attack," the police source added.  The plane, belonging to Spanish carrier Iberia Airlines, set off again for Madrid after its unscheduled stop, and the victim's body was transferred to the morgue in Casablanca.

Also on Tuesday, a Dutchman died in the French port of Calais when a two-kilo (four-and-a-half-pound) bag of cocaine exploded in his stomach as he attempted to smuggle it into Britain, police said.

Sorry, but I don't feel any sympathy for drug mules. They think it is the "easy" way out of money difficulties whilst keeping the filthy scumbag delaers in business. Whilst it is a shame a life had to be lost, think how many have been saved!!
