Woman dies of heart attack while using sex toy

London, July 9 (IANS) A “healthy” woman in her early thirties suffered a cardiac arrest and died while using a sex toy.
Nicola Paginton, 31, was found dead by friends at her home in Cirencester in Britain in October 2009, and police found a sex toy and a laptop computer with pornographic images lying nearby, news.com.au reported Friday citing police officials.

Pathologist Richard Jones said there were no abnormalities in her organs and her friends said she seemed “fit and well” the day before her death.

“There is nothing in the heart which I can find to explain why Nicola died suddenly,” Jones was quoted as saying.

“But I suspect it does represent a sudden cardiac arrest … In Nicola’s case there is another potential trigger and that is an increase in heart rate or blood pressure because of physical and emotional arousal,” he added.

Meanwhile, Gloucestershire coroner Alan Crickmore recorded a verdict of natural causes.

“More likely than not, this occurred from being in a state of arousal,” he said.
