Had to read this several times to verify the context even in the article didn’t make sense:

Hetal reportedly said she felt dizzy before fainting. Then, she died.
“The doctors told her she had died of a heart attack after she was rushed to a hospital nearby,”

The world actually is just dumb:

…even though the family was shocked by the death of their daughter, members of society convinced them to set an example and not send the bridegroom and his family empty-handed.

ChatGPT is writing like 70% of news articles, no? I realize this was from a year ago when maybe it was less bad then but this is becoming really common.

Nitpick, no he did not die of chili consumption, that’s just bad journalism. He died of cardiopulmonary arrest, with pre-existing cardiomegaly, when spicy food caused his heart rate to increase.

It’s very possible that running too fast would have done the same.

Here is a more detailed article about this.

I’m am more than a little surprised VW let it get to the point that the family sued.

That is a shitty, shitty microsociety.
