Report: Local Family Suing Red Bull For Wrongful Death

Suit claims otherwise healthy Bed-Stuy man died after consuming energy drink.

The family of a Bed-Stuy man who died last year after consuming Red Bull energy drinks during a basketball game are suing the company that manufactures the beverage, the New York Daily News reported Monday. 

According to the Daily News, 33-year-old Cory Terry's family claims that the additives in Red Bull that give it it's "pick-me-up" quality are more dangerous than the company lets on. 

Terry reportedly suffered a heart attack in 2011 after drinking Red Bull while playing basketball. 

His family claims he was in good health at the time of his death, and that the coroner cited his consumption of the drink in the autopsy. 

The suit is seeking $85 million in damages as a result of the wrongful death claim.

The guy probably died from hypertrophic cardio myopathy (HCM) ...the obstructive kind, which is an often undiagnosed heart condition found in both athletes and non athletes. I doubt they can prove his cause of death was Red Bull. These folks doin the sue'n are likely smokin rope.

ALL doctors tell people NOT to drink these "energy" drinks because of the effects on the heart and the body, just like they make recommendations on other bad foods (too much juice) that people consume. Just like they had to recommend that men not take Viagra if they have low blood pressure or take other medications. If a substance speeds up the heart and the body like these drinks, you know it's no good for consumption. But ... as long as corporations are raking in their huge profits off the lives of people, they're happy and the people remain stupid.

It might have been the trigger but the gun so to be was loaded with other problems. Although people do seem to consume too much of this stuff like it is soda pop which people consume too much also
