"Man killed ‘by 4 cans of Red Bull a day’

Alfredo Duran
A night worker who drank four cans of Red Bull a day died of a heart attack that may have been caused by the energy drink, an inquest heard.

Alfredo Duran collapsed at the end of a nightshift at a supermarket, during which he regularly drank large quantities of Red Bull, advertised with the slogan 'It gives you wings'.

I love how the head-line and first two paragraphs blames it all on Red Bull, then the rest of the article clearly indicates that Red Bull had little to do with it and more so it was his heart condition, and that the Red Bull energy drink, "...would have no effect on people with a normal heart"

This is the kind of news article that has Koreans believing in "Fan Death."
