The boy, 15, who ‘died from an asthma attack’ after drinking Vicks cough mixture

Source: Daily mail Online

A coroner has ordered an investigation into claims a cough medicine triggered an asthma attack that killed a 15-year-old boy.

John Ridehalgh had never suffered an asthma attack until he collapsed 20 minutes after taking Vicks VapoSyrup.

He failed to respond to treatment, suffered complications that led to the emergency amputation of both legs and died eight days later.

Yesterday Leicester coroner Martin Symington halted the inquest into the death after the schoolboy’s father told him he believed the cough mixture ‘triggered’ the fatal attack.

Mr Symington ordered tests to be carried out on the over-the-counter preparation.

The inquest heard earlier how John had been asthmatic from the age of four but had previously only suffered from wheezing, which he controlled using an inhaler.

The attack occurred in March 2005 when he took the VapoSyrup while off school with a cold.

Mr Ridehalgh, 43, who bought his son the medicine, said he checked every bottle of cough mixture in the pharmacy and found the VapoSyrup  -  formulated for chesty coughs  -  carried no warnings.

He told the inquest that John took some of the syrup when he got home and ‘just 20 minutes later he was on the landing, bent double’.

 

Mystery: The teenager died minutes after taking Vicks VapoSyrup

Mr Ridehalgh said his son used an inhaler and ‘should have been fine’.

He added: ‘He had never had that cough medicine before. From what I saw, that was what triggered it. Within minutes of having it he couldn’t breathe.’

John, of Bromley Cross, Bolton, was taken to the town’s royal hospital and later transferred by helicopter to Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, for specialist treatment. But the teenager suffered kidney failure when he developed complications in his legs.

The inquest was told how surgeons were forced to amputate both the boy’s limbs as they battled to save him.

Dr Charles Padfield, a consultant pathologist, said there was ‘no statutory evidence’ that VapoSyrup could have caused the attack.

But he added: ‘In the U.S. it is recommended the medicine is not used for persistent coughs caused by asthma, smoking and so on.’ Mr Symington adjourned the inquest to a date to be fixed after representations from Mr Ridehalgh’s lawyers.

He agreed that a pharmacologist should carry out an investigation into the possible effects of VapoSyrup on asthmatics.

He said: ‘It would probably be unlikely to alter my verdict, but if it would assist the family to have better understanding it may be the best thing.’

Mr Ridehalgh said afterwards that he had no concerns about the treatment his son received but wanted answers on what caused

the attack. He added that he had questions about Vicks VapoSyrup and whether its active ingredient  -  guaifenesin  -  should be given to asthmatics.’

Aimee Goldsmith, a spokesman for Proctor and Gamble, which owns the Vicks brand, said guaifenesin was available in a number of over-the-counter medicines.

‘Vicks VapoSyrup for Chesty Coughs is a registered medicine, and is safe and effective as confirmed by the UK regulatory body,’ she said.

‘Since its launch, the product has been safely used by millions of individuals across the UK.’

This is the first half of the shocking but extremely informative video documentary “Vaccination – The Hidden Truth” (1998) where 15 people, including Dr. Viera Scheibner (a PhD researcher), five medical doctors, other researchers, and parents’ experiences, reveal what is really going on in relation to illness and vaccines.
With so much government and medical promotion of vaccination for prevention of disease, ironically, the important facts presented here come from the orthodox medicine’s own peer-reviewed research. The result is a damning account of the ineffectiveness of vaccines and their often harmful effects.

It shows that parents are not being told the truth by the media, the Health Department and the medical establishment, with a medical doctor, Dr. Mark Donohoe, confessing that “It is a problem for me that I am part of a profession that is systematically lying to people.”

Find out how vaccines are proven to be both useless and have harmful effects to your health and how it is often erroneously believed to be compulsory.

Many people simply refuse to believe the truth regardless of how clear it is, but the impeccable documentation presented in this amazing video has changed the minds of many who have seen it.
