Woman Dies After Kissing Boyfriend Who Ate Peanut Butter Sandwich

Woman Dies After Kissing Boyfriend Who Ate Peanut Butter Sandwich

In 2012, the 20-year-old Montreal woman went to a party with her new boyfriend before the couple went back to his house to spend the night.

She had not told her new boyfriend about her allergy, and after he returned from his late night snack the fateful smooch ended up being fatal.

Myriam's boyfriend made a decision to eat a peanut butter sandwich for a late-night snack before going back to his room to give her a kiss.

He did not know of her severe allergies, but after he kissed her she started experiencing shortness of breath.

In addition, unfortunately, despite him calling 911 and an ambulance arriving eight minutes later, Myriam later died from severe cerebral anoxia, where the brain is deprived of oxygen.

Micheline is speaking out about her daughter's death because the coroner's report, released in 2014, stated that Myriam wasn't in possession of either her EpiPen nor her identification bracelet - both of which had the potential to save her life. Her mother, Micheline Ducre, is telling her daughter's story for the first time to spread the word about the dangers of allergies.

She said: "This is why you have to carry your epipen, even though you don't want to and even though it's not cool". She didn't have her EpiPen, which is used for emergency treatment of anaphylaxis, and her state rapidly deteriorated.

"She always lived a normal life", her mother said.

Head of paediatric allergy and immunology at Montreal Children's Hospital, Dr. Christine McCusker, told CTV Montreal that allergens from that of peanuts could stay in a person's saliva for up to four hours after consumption. "The most important part of managing your allergies is that you have to inform people".
