It was a quiet night for Tabatha McCourt, a 17-year old girl when the tragedy of facing death happened in the most awkward moment. The youngster only wanted to have a new splash of color to her hair and no one ever thought it can possibly trigger her death.
The teenage girl was reported to pull out the foils from her hair and experienced vomiting before losing her consciousness just around 20 minutes after her hair dye application. Her friend, Heather Goodhall, told the press about her agony while they tried to calm her down. It was a frightening experience for them to see the teen being sick after seeing her in a normal condition just a moment ago. The ambulance arrived and they were ordered to get out of the living room. After some moments, McCourt was brought to Monklands General Hospital where she was announced dead.
Although the Strathclyde Police have stated that there was no exact cause of death has been confirmed, there is a great possibility that she have undergone a rare anaphylactic reaction from the dyeâ€™s chemical. The whole cause is yet to be found out during her autopsy examination.
On the other hand, the victimâ€™s grandfather, John Bell, 59, stated that she has been a healthy individual and examining the dye and its associated chemicals cannot be ignored for investigating the case of her sudden death.
Same case has also been recalled way back in 2001 when a certain Narinder Devi from Birmingham had reportedly died because of severe anaphylactic shock due to hair colorants. The pathologists stated that her death was also because of an extreme allergic reaction â€˜possiblyâ€™ caused by hair dye chemicals.
