Teen dies from ‘cot death’

An inquest found that a boy died of unknown causes which appear similar to cot death experienced by infants. The 18 year old went to bed with a sore throat and died hours later. The inquest found the boy had undiagnosed diabetes but this was not the cause of his death. It is believed his heart failed due to unknown causes.
