16-Year-Old Dies From Stroke After His Girlfriend Gave Him A Hickey

A teenager has died after a love bite from his girlfriend caused a blood clot that quickly led to a stroke.

Julio Macias Gonzalez, a 17-year-old from Mexico City, raised alarm among his family when he began convulsing at the dinner table.

It is thought his girlfriend gave him a hickey earlier that evening which caused a blood clot that traveled to the teen’s brain.

Paramedics were called to the scene but Julio could not be saved and died shortly after.

It is believed the suction from the love bite was the cause of the clot which traveled to his brain, triggering a stroke.

The young man’s family are blaming his 24-year-old girlfriend for his death but she has now disappeared.

It is not the first time a love bite has been believed to have triggered a reaction.

In 2011 a 44-year-old woman in New Zealand lost movement in her left arm after having a stroke.

On noticing a faded love bite, doctors quickly realized damage to a major artery in her neck and linked it to her paralysis.
